My name is Kerrie and I am a student midwife and mum of 3 children. I am studying at ACU in Melbourne and would love to hear from anyone that is interested in having a student midwife to provide support through their pregnancy, birth and postnatal period. Generally I would attend at least 2 of your antenatal appointments and two postnatal appointments with you. It is up to you how involved you would like me to be beyond that and I would respect your choices. I have previously accompanied 10 women through pregnancy, birth and in the postnatal period. I live in Bayside Melbourne and would love to meet members due in November/December. I see it is a true privilege if allowed to be part of your journey. Please PM me for further information. Thanks:)

Hello Ladies, my name is Sophie and I am currently in my second year, studying a dual degree in Nursing and Midwifery at the University of Queensland. As part of my course, I must complete 20 continuity of care experiences. A continuity of care experience is an ongoing relationship between myself the student, and you the woman, from early pregnancy, through to the immediate weeks following the birth.
As the student, I do not replace your primary care provider; I am simply there to learn, be a familiar face and provide extra support to you and your family through this ongoing relationship. My aim is to attend at least 5 of your antenatal appointments, the labour and birth and one or two postnatal visits.
I am a very caring and down to earth person that is passionate about midwifery and ensuring the woman and her family have an enjoyable pregnancy journey. My placement hospital is the Royal Brisbane and Women's hospital, however i can attend most hospitals in the Brisbane area!
If you are interested or simply want more information, do not hesitate to message me! i greatly appreciate you allowing me to be apart of such a special journey!
Thank you, Sophie

Hi Mums and congratulations on your pregnancy,

My name is Michaela and I am a second year Midwifery/Nursing student at Deakin University in Burwood Melbourne. As part of my degree I am asked to provide a Continuity of Care experience by following a woman's journey through pregnancy, birth and the post natal period. I can attend antenatal appointments, birthing classes, or catch up for a coffee if you would like to debrief or have a chat. I am looking for pregnant women in the South Eastern suburbs to support and encourage through this exciting journey. I do not replace your primary care-giver and you are free to withdraw from the program any time you do not feel comfortable with it. I can be as involved in as much or as little as you like - I am simply there to learn, encourage you through your pregnancy and be an extra support if you would like. Learning to respect and listen to your birthing choices is important to me as it will help me become a more caring and compassionate midwife. I am not assigned to any particular hospital and I am flexible in regards to location and type of birth experience. Seeing a life come into this world is one of the most beautiful things and an incredible privilege. If you are interested in helping me please PM for more details.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Kind Regards

Hi ladies, My name is Jacqueline and I am currently studying a Bachelor of Midwifery at the  Victoria University at the St Albans campus. I am in my 1st year and live in the western suburbs.

A large component of my degree is being with and following 20 women through their pregnancy. Part of this is being at 3-4 antenatal visits, birth, and 1-2 postnatal visits. I would be there for support throughout your whole pregnancy, your labour, birth and postnatal care.

If you would be interested in this or have any questions to ask, please to not hesitate to reply to this thread. I will be forever grateful for the chance to be able to share this amazing journey of pregnancy with you, all while gaining a wealth of knowledge and experience to one day make myself a brilliant midwife

Hi mums to be!

My name is Stephanie and I am currently in my final year studying a Bachelor of Midwifery at ACU in Melbourne and am seeking women who are pregnant to possibly be apart of the Continuity of Care experience (CCE) program.
The CCE program allows student midwives (like myself) to accompany women who are pregnant (you!) to some of their antenatal and postnatal appointments and possibly their birth if they wish.
My role would be to support and assist you and your partner in anyway possible and learn from you and your pregnancy. This will help me in becoming a more knowledgeable and confident midwife to be, while in return I'll be a constant support for you. There are no costs involved.

So if you're birthing in November or December this year and you're interested I'd love to hear from you! I am located in the western suburbs of Melbourne, but am willing to travel a little further out if need be.

Please pm me.
if you have any questions or are interested.

Look forward to hearing from you!

Stephanie :)

Hi lovely ladies,
I'm a 3rd year (female) nursing/midwifery student at UQ. I'm currently seeking women who would be happy to take part in a Continuity of Care experience - this basically means they will allow me to attend antenatal/postnatal appts, provide help and support throughout their pregnancy, and also attend the birth (if comfortable). It is a completely confidential experience and you can withdraw at any time.
Continuity of Care Experiences are mutually beneficial, providing you with a familiar face and extra support throughout the entirety of your pregnancy. If you are giving birth at the RBWH, Mater Mothers' or Ipswich Hospital between September 2014 and October 2015 and would be interested in participating, I would very much like to hear from you.
Thanks so much, Connor :)

Hi my name is Larissa. I'm currently in my third year, of the bachelor of midwifery and nursing with UQ.

Through the UQ continuity of care program third year midwifery students can provide both emotional and physical support. I will 'follow you' throughout your pregnancy experience, supporting you through your antenatal period and then when the time comes, hopefully be privileged to be part of the birth of your baby. I will also be available to provide support into the postnatal period as well.

If you are planning a birth at the RBWH and this is something you are interested in please feel free to contact me via pm.
I am looking for pregnant women at all stages whether you are in your first trimester or in the middle of your third!

This program will provide you not only with a familiar face and continuous support across your pregnancy journey it will also provide me with an amazing learning opportunity. Follow through experiences are a great way for students to learn about the importance of continuative care and how best to advocate for women’s choices. On top of this they are wonderful for soon to be parents as  we are available to answer questions and provide even more support during your pregnancy and labour.

Hoping to hear from you soon,

My name is Sarah. I am a second year nursing/midwifery student at the University of Queensland.  
Part of the course requires students to find pregnant women willing to let students be a part of their experience. This is the continuity of care program. The program requires students to attend 4 antenatal visits or doctors appointments, be there for the birth and 2 postnatal visits.

If you are interested or have absolutely any questions do not hesitate to contact me!

This is a great program, as it allows mums and dads to have a bit of extra support and ask any questions they may a feel are a bit silly.

About myself - I live in Brisbane. I am currently 20 years old. I consider myself a pretty nice person and a good listener. I am passionate about my degree and hope I can be a part of your amazing experience!!

Kind regards,

Hello :)

My name is Amanda. I am a third year nursing/midwifery student (going into my fourth year next year) at the University of Queensland, based at the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital. As a part of my course I am required to recruit pregnant women to follow their pregnancy, birth and postnatal journey. This allows me to provide you with support, practice my midwifery skills and is a great learning experience for me. It is also good for you as it gives you a familiar face throughout your pregnancy and extra support. You would also be helping me out a lot, as I have to do twenty of these before I can graduate!

If you are having a baby at the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital and are before or equal to 30 weeks gestation I would love to hear from you :) You can contact me via pm.

My name is Carla and I have just completed my first year of studying a Bachelor of Nursing/Bachelor of Midwifery at the University of Queensland in Brisbane.

Throughout the Midwifery part of my dual degree, we are encouraged to take on Continuities of Care with pregnant women. Within this, our aim is to support these women, assist with their care throughout their pregnancy, and ensure that their opinions and choices about their pregnancy and birth are known and the number one priority.

This Continuity of Care includes the attendance of 5+ antenatal appointments, being there for both your labour and birth, and the attendance of 2+ postnatal appointments. All of these will remain under the care of your chosen health practitioner, however I will also be there to support and assist completely free of charge.

I am currently placed at the Mater Mother’s Hospital, so if that is where you are planning on having your baby, then that would be perfect. If not, I would still love to hear from you, as travelling to other hospitals is not an issue.

If you are pregnant (or know of anybody else who would be interested), and want any more information, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

I would be extremely privileged to be involved throughout your journey! I hope to hear from you soon.
