Continuity of care with a student midwife

Mater Mothers’ Private Townsville is proud to offer a Continuity of Care Program, whereby a student midwife can partner with you on your journey through pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period.

Involvement in Continuity of Care is a privilege for midwifery students. It is an invaluable experience in developing an understanding of the provision of care for women during pregnancy, labour, birth, postpartum and support at home.

What is involved?

Continuity of Care will mean that the midwifery student will remain in regular contact with you throughout your pregnancy, and with your permission, will be with you during your labour and birth.

For six weeks following the birth, they will follow your progress and that of your baby. The midwifery student will be supervised by a registered midwife throughout this time. When physical meetings are not possible, your midwifery student may feel it necessary to contact you over the phone and through email.

What if I change my mind?

If you choose to participate in the Continuity of Care and you later find your circumstances have changed, you are under no obligation to continue.

How do I participate?

If you would like to consider participating in the Continuity of Care experience, please contact our reception team for more information.
