We are a FIFO family so I am considered a student midwife this time as my partner didn’t make it to the birth last time! Has anyone had one? Would like to know if you liked the experience ect.

I had one and I found it really comforting to have a familiar face. Although.. she accidentally turned off my gas about 20hrs into contractions! But I would probably consider doing it again

I found a student midwife on EB, and she was amazing! Met up with her at my booking in appointment, and she was there for every appointment, all through labour and delivery and follow up at home. I adored her and wished we could have had another baby to have her again. There was a long waitlist to get into the midwifery group care, I didn't get on until 38 weeks, so it was comforting having a familiar face all throughout.

I haven't had one but I'm hoping to get one,I saw a brochure from a local uni before I was even pregnant and it seems like a great idea! I think it'd be important that you get on well with them, but what a nice experience to give someone! And it seems like it's be great support in return.

Lets us know what you decide! I'll update with my experience if I end up getting one too.

This isn't my due in month so apologies if I'm out of line contributing. But I've had a student with all my pregnancies and i definitely think it's worthwhile for you and them! You can often go over stuff with them after appointments, it gives you consistency if you're going through public and for me it was an extra support person through labor. Good luck :)
