for midwifery offer holders
there are so many amazing pieces of work available to read as a (student) midwife, so it can be really difficult to narrow down what's an essential piece of reading and what isn't.
your university should have a reading list available to you so that you can do some pre-course reading, however, you can also have a look at my recommendations below.
please note that I do not recommend you purchase all - or any - of these books. They can be very tempting to buy, but they are usually expensive and (in my own experience) sit on the shelf!
most universities have online libraries where you can access books like this as well as journals and articles for free, without having to physically check them out; meaning you can read them on your laptop, tablet or phone.
