I’m a midwife, how can I add to my skillset?
With the qualifications you have as a midwife in the UK, you’re actually in a perfect position to get into the world of cosmetic procedures such as Botox and dermal fillers.
Training in aesthetics is now a very common way for medical professionals such as yourself to broaden your horizons, increase your income and choose your own working hours.
It doesn’t take up too much of your time to train and it doesn’t require a vast financial investment since the courses are both quick and affordable.
So, whether you’re working in the NHS or private practice, this is a great option for moving your career forward.

Expert aesthetics training for healthcare professionals
We specialise in turning healthcare professionals such as midwives, into practitioners of some of the most popular cosmetic procedures available.
You’ll be trained by a team led by Dr Hennessy BDS, who has a background in dentistry and now has over 20 years’ experience in aesthetics. He understands the current market and he knows how to build on the knowledge and the experience of professionals in the NHS and private practice.
Assisted by Mrs Alisha Stonier, RGN NP, he will take you through everything you need to know about this exciting field.
This includes not only the medical procedures themselves but also the business side of things – meaning that you’ll be ready to start profiting from your new skillset as soon as you qualify.
The benefits of learning under Dr Hennessy
We have spent years refining our teaching techniques to ensure all of our students receive the best training possible.
For us, that means more hands-on practice with live models to create the most realistic learning experience. This is backed up with theory work revolving around the products and procedures as well as a comprehensive business start-up session.
Whether you choose our Foundation or Advanced course, our classes are small so every student gets the attention they need and this also provides enough time for you to ask questions and share your knowledge and experiences.
Every course is approved by leading insurers – Hamilton Fraser, Enhance Insurance and Lonsdale – and are also certified for the appropriate number of CPD points.
Groups limited to 6
Our courses are recommended by aesthetic product manufacturers such as Galderma and endorsed by all major insurance companies in the field – Cosmetic Insure, Hamilton Fraser
Recommended by Galderma
Practical groups are limited to 6 which gives a unique opportunity for excellent education and closely supervised hands-on practice. We also give a Starting in Aesthetics talk. We are proud that our courses provide the highest model to delegate ratio.
We offer unlimited support to all delegates who attend our courses.
We do provide models for all our courses but you can bring a model if you prefer. Please note that all Dr Hennessy’s courses DO NOT inject on plastic dummies as we believe that your practical on live individuals is invaluable.

Frequently Asked Questions by Midwivess
You will be injecting under the close supervision of leading Botox and dermal filler expert, Dr Stephen Hennessy, so don’t panic. Earlier in the day you will receive all the theoretical and practical information you’ll need to know how to inject Botox and dermal fillers safely and accurately.
Not only do we provide you with industry-leading practical instruction on the injection of Botox and dermal fillers, we also provide you with very important aesthetic business information which will prepare you for your change in careers.
So often we see people with the cosmetic skills lack the business acumen and struggle to set up their own business. We have a Starting in Aesthetics talk that prepares you for anything the world of running your own business could throw at you.
However, with your medical contacts from your time in the NHS you may know someone who is a qualified prescriber and can work with them. If not, we can supply you with contact information for qualified prescribers near you after your course.
That is completely up to you! You will leave our course with all the knowledge you’d need to start your own business; however, we understand that this isn’t for everyone.
If you’d rather dip your toes in first, then there’s absolutely nothing wrong with working for another practice while developing your skills.
There are benefits to both options. Clinics will be itching to get their hands on trained Botox practitioners with healthcare experience like you have through midwifery, so finding a job will be relatively easy. You also won’t have to worry about a lot of the business side of running a clinic.
Starting your own business on the other hand means you’ll be your own boss and will have a much higher income ceiling. You’ll also have more freedom to manage your own working schedule.
Definitely! Nurses and midwives are some of our favourite clients to teach because of their amazing social and patient-facing skills developed through working in the NHS.
The aesthetic industry has a lot to offer trained medical professionals, such as a better work/life balance and the potential for higher pay. And as quick and non-invasive procedures are becoming more and more popular, the demand for aesthetic providers is increasing.
There hasn’t been a better time to make the switch and finally look out for yourself for once! Complete a Botox course for midwives, become your own boss, and leave the red-tape of the NHS behind.
