My name is Emily and I'm a first-year student midwife at Victoria University in Melbourne. As a part of my midwifery course, I need to recruit women to follow through from pregnancy to the postpartum period. By doing so, I hope to gain a deeper understanding of the entire experience that women go through.
My role in the Follow-Through Journey can vary depending on you and your needs. It can include me coming along to your appointments with your caregiver (OB/midwife/GP), attending any antenatal classes (hospital-based or private), potentially the labour and birth, or even just catching up over coffee. I can be a resource if you have questions, or simply be a support person – whatever suits you best. And, of course, you always have the option to pull out of the program at any time.
Please feel free to PM me if you’re interested or have any questions. I am based in Brunswick, but I’m willing to travel, depending on the distance.
Thank you for considering being a part of a student midwife’s education!
