Katy completed a split nursing/midwifery placement at Morogoro Regional Hospital.
“Gap Medics is an experience like no other. From the very moment I stepped off the plane in Tanzania, I knew I was going to have a blast! Not only did my placement provide me with invaluable midwifery healthcare skills but it also helped me to take up training to be a midwife in the uk.
My split nursing/midwifery placement at Morogoro Regional Hospital was incredible. Witnessing life being brought into the world is one thing, but being part of that process—holding a mother’s hand and reassuring her that everything was going to be okay—was something else.
The placement and my mentors taught me so much about what it takes to be a midwife and a nurse, and the passion and strength required to take on such roles. During my two weeks on placement, I was able to experience the harsh realities of midwifery and nursing as well as the truly wonderful moments of both professions.
The placement was an unforgettable experience as it also brought me closer to the other students too. We were able to share the most unbelievable experiences together, from observing multiple caesarean sections to the natural birth of breach twins!
I honestly can say I will never forget my experience with Gap Medics. It was the most eye-opening and wonderful two weeks away I’ve ever had.”
