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.”
