I am a 3rd year nursing & midwifery student located in Eastern Suburbs of Melbourne looking for pregnant women who may be open to a follow-through (continuity of care) experience!
In short, this is a teaching/learning strategy where a student midwife follows a woman through her pregnancy, labour, birth and post natal period in a partnership approach.
Care from doctors/midwives remains the same at this time.
I will be there as an extra support to help with anything whether it be reassurance or doing some research!
We try to be there every step of the way (of course within the limits you and your family are comfortable with.) Ideally, as much as we can we attend your antenatal appointments, scans, labour, birth and are involved in whatever comes in your post natal period up until bub is about 6wks.
I have already completed two experiences and was lucky enough to build a lovely rapport with two women and be there for the labour & births of their two babies. Being a part of their experiences was an absolute privilege and I know both have found it a very positive experience. In addition, both women have provided me with glowing references to provide to future women.
All the best & look forward to hearing from you,
I am happy to hear from women all over metro Melbourne!
