    Default Student Midwife

    Hi everyone! I wasn't sure where to post this - My name is Vanessa and I am a first year Midwifery student, studying at Flinders. Apart of my registration requires me to follow six women throughout their pregnancy as practical learning for myself and hopefully some extra support for the woman. This means I would attend 3 antenatal appointments and 2 postnatal that would just require me to listen in and get an idea of how the process works - attending the birth is optional.
    If this is something you would be interested in, I would LOVE to hear from you! I live in Richmond but am willing to travel and to meet for a coffee beforehand! My email is vanessa.hewitt10@gmail.com

    Looking forward to hearing from you!

    Not being rude..its a serious question..
    Are u allowed to just attend any hospital?
    Or is it more like u would just be a visitor/support person?

    I dont know how it works as im a first time mum.

    Im having twins, so the rooms will be packed out as it is. A whole team for each baby. But twins is sonething great for u to learn with. So I would think.

    Hi Sarah!

    Flinders allows us to attend any hospital excluding Flinders Private and Ashford private for the meantime. We attend an orientation for every hospital we are following women at and paperwork is filled out making the hospital aware I will be present for appointments and the birth - which is never an issue.
    I would be considered a support person throughout and depending on the team, assisting with basic observations etc.
    Twins would be an incredible learning experience for me and I would love to be an added support person for you, if you are considering a student midwife!
    Feel free to email me if you have any questions or would like to meet for a coffee!

    Hi Vanessa! I'm 15 weeks, and seeing an obstetrician at Adelaide Obstetrics. I'm giving birth at Ashford, so you may not be able to attend but I'm happy to have you attend antenatal/postnatal appointments?

    Hi! Congratulation! Sorry it has taken me time to reply, busy with placement at WCH. The Uni would prefer me to be able to attend the birth but if I am having trouble finding women then appointments alone are okay as well! I would love for you to email me so I can keep you as a contact and let you know within the next couple of weeks if attending the appointments will work for us both!
    Thankyou so much for your reply!
    Vanessa
