Mayes midwifery is detailed but easy to read; might be a good place to start. Also an anat and phys textbook, 1st year in our course you go thru every part of the body really quickly, i know i struggled and so did many others.

Anatomy and Physiology. All nurse/mid students have to do it and many struggle. Get a text book and work through questions at the end of each chapter. Also there is lots of anatomy and physiology podcasts you can download and listen to through itunes. I found it stuck in my brain more just listening to the lectures.

Gah, I just typed up a big post and lost it...
If you can afford it, enroll in 2 subjects in the midwifery course and do those and do those really well. At out uni they advise doing the anatomy and physiology subjects, but you could also do a midwifery subject, and make yourself known to the lecturers so they remember you when you apply the following year. You would have to be able to work really hard though to get good marks, as they would use those subjects to help get you in.
Books wise, I would get Myles textbook for midwives, It is used in most courses I believe. It is incredibly similar to Mayes midwifery though. Also contact the uni you want to get into- maybe call their bookshop and ask what anatomy and physiology books are used at their uni for the subject that is in the midwifery course and work your way through that one. (0r ask a student on here if there is anyone from the uni you want to go to- there are heaps of girls on here and I am sure we would have most uni's covered.
good Luck.
