I am a student midwife at ACU Melbourne and am looking for pregnant women to follow through their journey from pregnancy, to birth and the postnatal period. I am passionate about women having informed choice when it comes to their birthing experiences, their bodies and their babies, and believe informed choice results in the best possible outcomes for women and their families. I would ask to attend antenatal and postnatal appointments with you, and should you be comfortable enough with me when the time comes, would be honoured to support you through birth.
I can offer you support by discussing any concerns, answering questions using the best available research evidence, and generally just be there to share your experience of transitioning from pregnancy to motherhood. The main purpose of the "Continuity of Care" program is for us to build a professional friendship with women that allows us to experience the childbearing journey with women (and their families!) from all walks of life, and shape our practice by finding out what women want and value in their maternity care. This experience will help us become outstanding midwives, and perhaps support your daughters through their pregnancies with the skills we learn from our time with you .
Please rest assured that our relationship and your experience will be treated with the utmost respect and confidentiality by myself and ACU, with personal and identifying details omitted from any documentation I am required to complete.
I am based in Melbourne, but would love to work with women from rural Victoria too.
Congratulations to you and your families on your impending bundle(s) of joy and I look forward to hearing from you soon!
