Hello everyone,

I am a 27yr old first year student midwife (and mum) at ACU in Brisbane. As part of my training I will be supporting a number of women through their experiences of pregnancy, birth and the early weeks of the postnatal period. I have a particular passion for homebirth and as such I would love to offer that support to women planning one. I would provide a purely supportive role (no skilled assistance) at this stage in my training, and I am offering to accompany women to their antenatal appointments, support them at the birth if at all possible and also visit them for 4 - 6 weeks postnatally.

If you are currently between 30 and 35 weeks along and you think you would like the extra support of a student midwife please contact me and we can make a time to have a chat and give you an opportunity to find out a bit more. I am in the Redlands area of Brisbane but I am willing to travel up to an hour.

If you do decide you would like my support and later change your mind, you are completely free to withdraw at absolutely any time. As a student midwife I adhere to a strict code of conduct and ethical standards. All personal details are kept completely confidential.

Thank you for your time and please feel free to pass on my details to any other mum-to-bes who may be interested, especially anyone planning to birth at home.

Yours sincerely,
Chantelle

Hello!

My name is Emily and I'm a first-year student midwife at Victoria University in Melbourne. As a part of my midwifery course, I need to recruit women to follow through from pregnancy to the postpartum period. By doing so, I hope to gain a deeper understanding of the entire experience that women go through.

My role in the Follow-Through Journey can vary depending on you and your needs. It can include me coming along to your appointments with your caregiver (OB/midwife/GP), attending any antenatal classes (hospital-based or private), potentially the labour and birth, or even just catching up over coffee. I can be a resource if you have questions, or simply be a support person – whatever suits you best. And, of course, you always have the option to pull out of the program at any time.

Please feel free to PM me if you’re interested or have any questions. I am based in Brunswick, but I’m willing to travel, depending on the distance.

Thank you for considering being a part of a student midwife’s education!

Emily

Hi all,

Thought I'd add a post here for any mums-to-be on the    Mornington Peninsula who would like the support of a student midwife    during their pregnancy, birth and first 6 weeks postpartum.

Just some background info on me -

I    am a second year midwife at Monash University, Peninsula Campus. As a    part of my course, I am required to find eight women who are  interested   in being part of the "follow through" program. Essentially  this means I   need to find eight women who are willing to let me  accompany them to   prenatal appointments (GP, obstetrician, ultrasound  etc), ask a few   questions and basically "share" the journey of their  pregnancy. I am not   required to attend the actual birth - so it  completely up to mum to   decide whether she would like me with her  during labour and/or birth. My   involvement will end approximately six  weeks after baby is born.

I   am ideally looking for women who  are presently in early second   trimester of pregnancy or earlier who  are living on the Mornington   Peninsula and surrounding suburbs. If you  are interested in finding out   more or wish to be a part of the follow  through program please contact   me.
