Hi ladies,

If you are a Student Midwife who needs to ask for members to help finish their course requirements, you are welcome to post here.

Please ensure that you get members to PM you for further information (note that contact details will be removed for your own safety).

Make sure you state the state/town etc that you are in so that you only get members from your area.

Good luck.

Hello!

I'll add my details here for any women in the GEELONG region who are open to having a midwifery student follow them through their pregnancies. Public pregnancy care, private with an OB, at home with a private midwife, I'd love to be involved.

A little about me- My name is Isis, this year I will be a 4th year double degree (B.Midwifery/B.Nursing) student at Deakin Uni. I have birthed three children, two in hospital and one at home. I am a certified doula and have supported women in both hospital and home births.  My five year plan for employment after graduation is in private midwifery, with the place of birth (home or hospital) being dictated by the woman and her baby's requirements.

I aim to have maximum of 2 women being followed at any time, so I can devote as much of my time to attending your appointments in between lectures and my own child-wrangling. I am required to spend a minimum of 10 hours with you over the course of your pregnancy, birth and postnatally, with 2 appointments postnatally. Ideally we would meet while you are in the early stages of pregnancy (though the first meet can be up to 32 weeks) so we can get to know each other a little in order to build a rapport.

I am located just north of Geelong, and am willing to travel up to Werribee and down as far down as Anglesea. Please PM me if you are interested in taking part in this fantastic program and helping out a midwifery student!

Warrnambool and surrounds Mums

Hi my name is Lisa and I am just finishing off my second year of a combined Nursing/Midwifery degree at Deakin Uni. I am currently looking for any mums-to-be in the Warrnambool and surrounding areas that would be interested in taking part in a Continuity of Care (CoC) experience and help support my practical and ongoing learning. In return I can offer continual support through pregnancy, labour and birth (if you and your partner are comfortable with that), and the post natal period.

I am a mum to 3 kids myself and have experienced both caesarean and then vaginal birth and am happy to support either mode because the main focus of the follow through program is not the method of delivery. The focus is all about continuity and support. My goal is to form a trusting professional relationship with you, so that during your pregnancy and at the time of your baby's birth regardless of how and where, you have someone with you who you know and trust and is only there to support you and your wishes for the birth.

So if you live in the Warrnambool area and are interested finding out more about the program and in helping me wink.gif  gain some extremely valuable practical experience by being a part of the CoC experience, please PM me and we can organise a time to have a chat.

Hi,

I am in second year of midwifery at ACU  in  Melbourne.  As part of my course I am taking part in the Follow  Through  Program which involves supporting pregnant women during  pregnancy,  birth (optional) and the early postnatal period whilst  obtaining the  life experience I need to become an outstanding midwife.

My  involvement tends to vary with each woman - I have attended   appointments and ultrasounds, antenatal classes, caught up for coffee and been invited as   a support person at the birth.  Information and   details are all anonymous and I will be mentored throughout the course   by a qualified midwife.

I am 31yo, married with a young daughter and live in the Prahran area. If you or  someone you know is interested in  taking part in the program or would  like more information please PM me.

Note from Mod: For those who are struggling with sending PM's, please ensure that you have firstly inserted a title (it won't send the PM without a title) and secondly have selected the Standard Text Editor. This is on the right above thePM box and is a picture of 2 arrows, almost like a yin yang sign. Once you have selected this you should be able to send the PMs.

Hope this helps.

Hi,
I'm a second year Bachelor of Midwifery (Post reg) student with UniSA. I am returning to my course after a 1 year leave of absence to focus on being a mama and looking after an unwell family member. A bit about myself, Ive just turned 25, I work part time as Registered Nurse and have a gorgeous energetic 4 year old little girl biggrin.gif I study externally and currently live in the country about an hour from adelaide but am in the process of moving to the city. I am currently looking for any lovely mums-to-be in adelaide (or the hills/murray mallee) that may be interested in having a student midwife 'follow' them throughout their pregnancy and journey to parenthood. This program is an invaluable learning experience and has many benefits for mums and dads where we can provide additional support and a familiar face throughout your pregnancy.
The follow through program requires me to accompany women to a minimum of two antenatal and postnatal visits and the birth of your baby, although if you decide against my presence at the birth then thats entirely up to you. I can do as much or as little as you like, you see your regular care provider and I work under their supervision and guidance. You are in complete control and can withdraw at any time if you decide you no longer wish to have a student midwife. If you would like more information or to have a student midwife please feel free to pm me for more information and I will do all I can to help you
Thanks
Courtney

Student midwife looking to support women in Melbourne

Hello All!

My name is Katie and I am a student midwife currently undergoing study at ACU in Melbourne.

As part of our education, student midwives are required to 'follow' 19 amazing pregnant women throughout their perinatal journey, providing support and a friendly face when its needed. I'm here to give you a support during your pregnancy and have a mentor who is an experienced midwife who will guide me.

My role within the program is to support you throughout your pregnancy. This support can range from accompanying you to appointments, gathering information, chatting about anything and everything or just being an open ear and a kind face when you need it. Our contact with each other is definitely not limited to clinical appointments. Its an one on one partnership. Its totally free as I require these contact hours to complete my studies. I'm here to answer any questions you may have, making sure you have unbias information and assisting you in making informed choices.

This is a one-on-one relationship and is treated with the highest respect and confidentiality. If at any stage you would like the relationship to end, it will be. You are in control.

If you are under 35 weeks pregnant and are willing to share your amazing pregnancy journey with me, please PM me. I would LOVE to hear from you.
Most women who participate in our program find it a rewarding and helpful experience. I'm sure we will have a fantastic time together.




Thank you!
Katie

Student Midwife Brisbane looking for generous Mums-to-be!


Hello, my name is Kathryn and I am a first year Midwifery Student at ACU in Brisbane.

A major component of our degree is the Follow Through Journey. I am looking for pregnant women (less than 35 weeks) who are generous enough to allow me to support them throughout their pregnancy, birth and post natal care. The idea behind the program is to promote continuity of care and build on the relationship between midwife and woman. I will, at all times, be mentored by an endorsed midwife. You can have me involved as much or as little as you like.

If you would like more information on the program or to meet me in person I would be absolutely thrilled to do so.  I am a mother of three myself, on the path to fulfilling a long overdue dream!

Hi everyone, my name is Bek and have just started my journey to become a midwife! I am in my first year at Griffith University at Logan in BRISBANE and as most of you would know, as part of our curriculum we are required to 'follow' women through their experience. I would like to attend 5 antenatal appointments, the birth and 3 postnatal appointments. As I have just started, I haven't done any yet so would just be observing the first few but I would be there to support you and listen to what you have to say.

I would be supervised by a registered midwife at all times and if you decided that the follow through experience was no longer for you, that is absolutely fine!

So if any of you ladies are planning on birthing at LOGAN HOSPITAL and are less than 35 weeks I would be so happy to hear from you!


Kind regards



Bek
