Sarah Kalfas, Bachelor of Midwifery

“Studying midwifery at ACU has given me a whole new outlook on life. Never have I felt more certain of what I am doing, where I am going, and who I am as a person. I have always been fascinated by midwifery and my passion only continues to grow stronger as I progress further through my degree.

"The midwifery teaching team at ACU cannot be faulted. They support and encourage us all to trust in our knowledge, skills and capabilities, constantly challenging us to learn from our mistakes and strive for excellence.

"At ACU I have had the opportunity to study pregnancy and childbirth in great depth, and develop and practice my clinical skills both on campus and while at placement. I have also been given guidance and independence to create my own personal midwifery philosophy.

"Working in partnership with women, and helping empower and support them during pregnancy and childbirth is a huge responsibility and a tremendous honour. I look forward to being part of such extraordinary and life changing moments and I eagerly anticipate the challenges and rewards that a career as a midwife will bring.”
