Abstract

Despite a growing understanding of autism and its prevalence among health care professionals, little attention has been paid to the experiences of autistic students studying midwifery. Research has indicated a rising number of health care professionals identifying as autistic and this trend likely extends to midwifery students as well (McCowan et al 2022). Moreover, it is important to consider the potential under-reporting of autistic individuals in the health care field, as they may possess strengths that make them well-suited for such professions (McCowan et al 2021).
