I'm currently studying a bachelor of midwifery at the Australian Catholic University, Banyo. I am participating in a program called "Continuity of Care" experience which is a part of my studies. Under supervision from your chosen care provider (midwife, obstetrician or GP) I am expected to engage with and provide support to women during pregnancy, labour and birth, and the postnatal period . The intention of this program is to enable students like myself to experience continuity with the individual woman across their journey. I am there for support and education purposes.
A few things to consider:
This program is completely confidential and protected by Australian Catholic University.
- To be eligible the woman must be less than 35 weeks
- I am expected to attend at least two antenatal appointments
- As a requirement of my study, I need to attend the birth
- I am expected to stay in contact with the mother briefly, 6 weeks postnatal
Below is a link of information outlining the program:
If there are any questions please ask me,
I would greatly appreciate it
