Student Midwives

Student Midwives


My Midwives Melbourne works in partnership with the Australian Catholic University department of Health Sciences. Select students studying the Bachelor of Midwifery undertake a year-long clinical placement at My Midwives Melbourne and work under the supervision and guidance of our experienced midwives.

"The Bachelor of Midwifery is for those who want to become registered midwives and work in maternity settings such as hospitals, birth centres and other community agencies. The midwifery course will teach students how to: manage normal pregnancy and childbirth, provide effective postnatal, maternal and newborn care to women and their newborn infant, provide safe and reliable care that meets the individual psychological, emotional, physical, social and spiritual needs of women.”

Beth Fabris

Experience:

Beth is a second year Bachelor of Midwifery student studying at the Australian Catholic University.

Midwifery Interests:

After supporting her sister through the birth of her nephew, Beth became aware just how little women (herself included) knew about the physiological process of pregnancy and birth. Beth has entered her midwifery journey with a passion to learn more about how to educate and work alongside women to normalise birth and break down the fear that society tends to place on the modern pregnant woman. Beth’s interests also include how to utilise various non-pharmacological pain relief methods during birth.

Other Interests:

Beth previously worked as a zookeeper and is very fond of caring for animals including her two dogs, cat and a bird.
