Abstract

From time immemorial, midwives have shared stories with students and women. Oral storytelling connects communities and strengthens relationships. This paper presents a summary of a doctoral study that asked: What are final year midwifery students’ views and experiences of telling and listening to practicerelated stories? It found that on their journeys to becoming midwives, stories and storytelling engage midwifery students in deep transformative learning. In the light of the Nursing and Midwifery Council’s (NMC) Future Midwife standards (2019), the findings and recommendations will be of interest to midwifery educationalists developing new curricula, along with students, practice supervisors and assessors.
