Your pregnancy journey with a midwifery student
Are you, or someone you know, pregnant? Our free Call the Midwifery Student program helps provide additional support throughout your pregnancy. As part of the program, a midwifery student will attend your antenatal appointments and contribute to your care during labour, providing comfort and support to you and your growing family.

“This program provides mothers with the continuity of care that our health system can’t always provide, which is proven to have many benefits including improved pregnancy and birth outcomes.”
– Taryn Gartner, Bachelor of Midwifery student
