I am an A-level student in my first year at Sir John Deane's College. My aspiration in life is to be a midwife and I currently volunteer weekly at the local maternity ward. I am planning to help out in one of Thailand's busiest hospitals in Chiang Mai on the maternity wards shadowing fellow midwives and helping them in natural and more complicated deliveries. I will also be helping to care for new mums and their babies on the antenatal and neonatal units.

I expect the experience to be eye-opening, heart-warming and very fast-paced. In Thailand teenage pregnancies increased by 43% last year similarly to some parts of Britain that raised by 40% last year, this is an area of midwifery I am particularly interested in and was my reason for choosing the hospitals of Chiang Mai. I believe this experience will give me the insight I need to develop my knowledge and passion on midwifery and will open my eyes to cultural and religious diversity that is increasing every day in the UK.

While the value of this trip is immeasurable, I wanted to reach out to family and friends to offset its costs. Every little bit will help and be much appreciated.
Thank you,
Nicole Alexiuk.
