I'm a mum of three boys aged 2, 7 and 9 but I'm new to this forum. I'm currently studying a bachelor of midwifery and, as many of you probably know, I need to "recruit" (horrible description) 20 women to follow through from pregnancy to post birth as part of my degree.
The minimum requirements are not much - attending 2 antenatal and 2 postnatal appointments with you. Beyond that, I can be involved as little or as much as you'd like. Attending the birth would be wonderful but is not essential. It's up to you!
In saying that though, I'm also very happy to be an involved support person throughout your experience. As a mum of three, I would like to think I can be a great help. I'm also very open minded and non-judgemental. We all travel this road in a different way!
I'm from the hills myself so would love to find some women nearby to follow, but I'm more than happy to take on women from other Adelaide areas too.
If you think you may like some more info on having a student midwife, please send me a message and I'll get back to you ASAP.
Thanks so much! I wish you all the best at this exciting time!
