I’m a 27 year old student midwife in my first year at Monash University. I’m really passionate about the care of women and their babies, and am seeking ladies who are less than 35 weeks pregnant who are willing to share their pregnancy, childbirth and early parenting experiences with me. As part of my degree, I need to engage in a number of ‘follow through’ journeys, which help me to understand the full journey of pregnancy and the role of the midwife. These experiences are invaluable learning tools for me as a student, and are also hopefully valuable for you, as the mum-to-be! I can offer ongoing support and companionship throughout your pregnancy and labour – if you have any questions I can research them for you and generally do whatever I can to help you have the experience you want.
I would attend some of your antenatal appointments and the birth (if invited), as well as post-natal appointments up until your new baby is 6 weeks old. The amount of involvement is completely in your control and you are free to withdraw at any time. This is an official requirement of my course so I am being mentored by a midwife at University & there are some forms to fill out etc. to make it all above-board.
I am located in Bonbeach (south-eastern suburbs of Melbourne), but am willing to travel so if you are interested in helping me out or would like to know a little bit more about me or the program, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Many thanks in advance!
