Good afternoon ladies,

Thank you for taking the time to read my post. You will have to excuse my ignorance in using this forum - I'm a newbie.

I am a new post-graduate student in midwifery. I currently study at Notre Dame in Fremantle. Part of my studies involves following a pregnant womans journey through to post-natal care. The following applies:

* I attend 4 antenatal appointments with you
* I attend 2 postnatal appoints with you
* If you'll have me, I attend your birth
* I cost nothing :)
* I get to learn from you and vise versa (if need be)
* I am your support person
* If at anytime you don't feel comfortable, you don't have to continue with me

If you are SOR and less then 34 weeks pregnant, I would love to her from you.
Thank you so much

Hi there,

My name is Helena and I am a second year midwifery student studying a combined Nursing/Midwifery degree at La Trobe University.
As part of my course requirements, I am required to follow 10 women through their pregnancy and birth (called a continuity of care experience), which simply involves attending 4 antenatal appointments, and two postnatal follow up appointments, and potentially the birth itself if that is something that the mother is comfortable with. The idea of the COCE program is to allow myself as a student to gauge an understanding of all aspects of pregnancy and birth, including the antenatal, postnatal and birth experiences, and to act as an extra support for the woman and her family throughout the experience.

Where possible, I will attempt to participate in providing care to you that is appropriate to my level of skills and knowledge, or to observe as care is provided to you by other health professionals.

Should you wish to participate in the COCE, you can make the choice to withdraw at anytime f you decide that it is no longer something you want to do.

I am located in the northern suburbs of Melbourne, but can drive so am happy to commute to wherever you are located.  

Please personal message me for further contact details
I look forward to hearing from you!

Hi there

Apologies if this is not the correct place to reply.

I am a Midwifery student based in Perth.

I am a Registered Nurse with 13 years experience currently undertaking a Graduate Diploma in Midwifery at Curtin University.

As part of my registration requirements I'm required to follow 10 women during their pregnancy. At a minimum I'm required to attend 4 prenatal and 2 postnatal visits plus be present at a majority of their births.

This is a learning experience for me as a student (always with a registered midwife present) and also provides continuity for the women during and after the pregnancy.

I would love if you could help me get in touch with anyone you know who may be less than 35 weeks pregnant if you think they may be interested in participating! Thank you!

Hi there,

My name is Emma, I am a student midwife and nurse from La Trobe University. I am seeking pregnant women who may be interested in having the support of a student midwife throughout their pregnancy, labour and birth, and the immediate postnatal period. This in no way replaces your regular care by registered midwife or doctor.
The purpose is to provide continuous and ongoing support to pregnant women, which has been shown to improve pregnancy outcomes, as well as provide a familiar face throughout your care.

The program also offers women the opportunity to help the next generation of midwives to become the best midwives they can be.

It would be an honour to follow you on your pregnancy journey and I hope to hear from you!

I am located in Melbourne and would happily commute.

If you are interested or would like to learn more information, please do not hesitate to contact me!

I'm a student midwife and registered nurse at Liver pool Hosp this year.

I rotate throughout the different areas of the hospital this year and need to follow 10 women through their pregnancies. I want to be your student midwife to make the journey a little less daunting. All your care is fully supervised by a registered midwife and/or doctor as required.

I am present and involved with your care from the day you say you want to be involved in the program, present at all appointments and scans, present at your labour and birth (all the way through) and I will check back with you after your baby is born.

If you are considering having a student midwife involved in your pregnancy journey and are having your baby at Liver pool then I would love to be involved.

Send me a message with any questions :)

*Melbourne Mums*

Hi there,

I'm a nursing/ Midwifery student in my third year at LaTrobe. Similar to the above posts I am looking for pregnant women to follow their journey and observe the care they receive as part of the continuity of care model.

100% confidential and a familiar face with added knowledge to support you. No set criteria for the women, and involves me attending the following:
-minimum 4 antenatal appointments
-2 postnatal check (MCHN)
-optimally the birth! (Given you're comfortable with this)

I'm located bayside in Melbourne and willing to commute around Melbourne.

Feel free to contact me with any questions or if you're interested in having a student tag along to your appointments. :)

Hello! :)

Congratulations on your pregnancy!

My name is Rachel and I'm currently in my final year of my studies. As part of my training, I am seeking women in Melbournre that are due this year who may be interested in having a midwifery student follow their pregnancy from the antenatal period to up to six weeks postnatal. Not only will I lend a listening ear, I can offer you additional support and would be happy to answer any questions in a casual manner. Of course, this is a completely voluntary program and you can choose to opt out at any time. By participating in this program, I do not replace your primary care-giver but I am there to learn as this experience can help me to develop and grow as a future midwife.

If this is something that interests you or you would like more information please contact me :)

Hey everyone;
My name is Gloria, I’m currently studying Nursing/Midwifery at La Trobe University and as a part of this course I am required to join 10 women through the journey of pregnancy. This provides me a valuable opportunity to learn and develop my skills as a future midwife.

What this required is attending 4 antenatal appointments, 2 postnatal appointments and possibly labour and birth if you allow. If you decide this is something you do not wish to continue after a couple of appointments that is absolutely fine, you are free to withdraw at any time!

I'm based on the east side of Melbourne.

If yourself or anyone you know would allow me to join you as a support person on this journey please feel free to message me.

Hi everyone,

My name is Caitlin and I am approaching my final year of my Bachelor of Midwifery at ACU in Melbourne.

As part of my degree I am required to follow 10 women through their pregnancy, including antenatal appointments, the birth and postnatal appointments.

I am hoping to recruit one more woman who is due late 2017 or any time in 2018 and who lives in the South Eastern suburbs of Melbourne

I myself am a Mum to 5 children aged 10 months to 8.5 years and have so far supported 8 women through their pregnancy, birth and early postnatal period. I also had a student midwife for my last two pregnancies and it was wonderful to have the additional support of a person who I could bounce my thoughts and ideas off.

I am a mature aged student who worked as a Secondary School teacher in a previous life. Being able to support women through such an amazing time in their lives is an absolute privilege.

If you think you would like the support of a student midwife, please feel free to send me a PM.

Just wanted to post from someone who had a student midwife attached to my care in canberra. Was a fantastic experience and felt great to know I was part of training the next generations of midwives.

The student pretty much just ghosts the regular midwife... takes routine measurements etc, which is then checked by the midwife.

And it was fantastic to have that extra pair of hands in the delivery room.

I highly recommend being part of the student midwife program as an expectant mum.

Hi!! My name is Angela and I am an experienced Registered Nurse with 4 children of my own....and I am now a student Midwife!! If you are living in Perth then please read on...

Are you PREGNANT?? Soon to be PREGNANT?? Know someone who is PREGNANT (<35 weeks)? I am a Registered Nurse (with mostly an ICU background) who is currently studying a Postgraduate Diploma of Midwifery through Curtin Uni. A required part of our studies as a student midwife is to follow 10 women through their pregnancy journey as part of the Continuity of Care model. This will involve me accompanying you to 4 antenatal appointments, ultrasounds, labour, birth and 2 postnatal appointments. Any model of care (private, public, shared care, community based etc) at any metropolitan hospital (public or private or at home) and any delivery method (booked c/s, induction, spontaneous etc) is suitable!!! There is no cost and you are able to opt out of the program at any time if needed.
If you know anyone who might be interested and would like more information then please get in contact with me through a PM. It will be a very rewarding experience!
