Are you, or is someone you know pregnant and open to receiving support during pregnancy, labour, birth and the postnatal period? My name is Nicole, I am a Midwifery student Studying at ACU (Melbourne) and am currently in my final year of study. As a Midwifery student at Australian Catholic University I am looking for women interested in the Continuity of Care Experience (CCE) program.

The CCE program allows students the opportunity to support women through their pregnancy by learning from them and their experiences. It gives me as a midwifery student the opportunity to experience continuity in practice, and provide regular support and care throughout pregnancy, labour, birth and the postnatal period (4 - 6 weeks after birth).

Communication between a woman and midwife is fundamental to providing quality care. I believe that developing relationships and providing support can be achieved through listening, sharing stories and following the journey of women through their pregnancy. In this regard the woman becomes a mentor, through shared knowledge the student is able to understand the needs of women and families during this time.

I would love to hear from anyone interested in the CCE program. The level of involvement is at your discression and you can withdraw from the from the program at any time. Any information that is disclosed is kept strictly confidential in line with the University's policies and procedures.


If your curious:

I am a 26 year old midwifery student in my final year of study. I am a registered nurse, childcare worker, shoe production assistant and student. I have a passion for midwifery which began when my best friend became pregnant 3 years ago, since then I knew that midwifery was what I wanted to do.

If your interested in the program send me a reply or otherwise you can email me at nicole.tupek@gmail.com

I look forward to hearing from you,

Thanks!

Nicole
