Hello, people of BubHub
My name is Courtney, and I'm a mature age student midwife about to embark on me third and final year of study at Curtin University in Perth.
As you may already know, an essential part of midwifery training is for the student to follow the childbearing journeys of at least 20 women, through what we call Continuity of Care Experiences.
This generally entails one student attending (and, as appropriate, participating in) antenatal appointments and classes with you, the labour and birth, and a few postnatal visits. It can include things like ultrasounds, physio sessions, trips to the lactation consultant, etc. It also means we're just a phone call away, any time you need us for extra support.
If you live in the Perth metro area and are less than 35 weeks pregnant, I welcome your emails if you would like to find out more about the Continuity of Care Experience, or volunteer to participate.
You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org .
(Alternately please feel free to call the Curtin University School of Nursing & Midwifery on (08) 9266 2088 to speak to a midwifery lecturer for more info about the program.)
A student midwife is always under supervision from registered health practitioners, and I would always ensure that my presence or participation does not disrupt the care you receive from professionals, or the choices and birth plan you have made. I am here to support you, and to learn from you, to become the best midwife I can be.
I hope it goes without saying that I am interested in meeting and working with women from all walks of life, whatever your family makeup, cultural background, ethnicity, sexuality, etc., and whatever your chosen setting and model of care.
I look forward to hearing from you, and wish you health and happiness!

Still hoping to support more Perth women, especially in the western and inner northern suburbs (e.g. King Edward, Family Birth Centre, Osborne Park, St John Subi or Mt Lawley, or using homebirth or private midwives.)

With my first year of midwifery training nearly complete, I'm more ready and able than ever to support you and your family and advocate for you during the exciting and challenging times of pregnancy, labour, and early parenting!
Please don't hesitate to contact me, or Curtin University, if you are keen to have a student midwife work alongside you and your healthcare team.

I'm officially half way through my 3 year degree now, and still looking to work with about 8-10 more women and families in these Continuity of Care follow-through experiences.
If it's something you are interested in, or curious about, please do email me at email@example.com to talk more.
I have completed a variety of clinical placements so far, including at the Family Birth Centre, secondary and tertiary hospitals, and with homebirth midwives. I have a good base of knowledge, but still plenty more to learn from women like you!
I'd love to hear from you soon

Final year student midwife seeking Perth women
I've just wrapped up second year, meaning I'm heading into my final two semesters in 2015. This is the capstone of my studies, and I would love to exchange knowledge and experiences with about 5 more women and families over the next 12 months.
If you are planning a vaginal birth anywhere in Perth and are happy for a senior student to work closely with you midwives and doctors to provide individualised maternity care for you, please email me for more info! firstname.lastname@example.org
