I will soon be commencing my second year of midwifery at ACU in Melbourne. As part of my course I am taking part in the Follow Through Program which involves supporting pregnant women during pregnancy, birth (optional) and the early postnatal period whilst obtaining the life experience I need to become an outstanding midwife.
My involvement tends to vary with each woman - I have attended appointments and ultrasounds, antenatal classes and even been invited as a support person at the birth, and with other women have just caught up for coffee every few weeks to discuss the pregnancy. Information and details are all anonymous and I will be mentored throughout the course by a qualified midwife.
I live in the Prahran area. If you or someone you know is interested in taking part in the program or would like more information please contact me:
