In the first part of this paper we provide a brief explanation of resilience and outline what is known about resilience in healthcare professionals. We then summarise the findings from our recent study of resilience in UK midwifery, which used a closed online discussion forum to explore the experiences of midwives who described themselves as resilient. We note that the participants identified a number of workplace challenges, which they responded to with a range of day-to-day and longer-term strategies. We reflect on what these findings might mean for midwifery practice, and where the gaps in knowledge remain.
