The Bachelor of Midwifery was an intense, fulfilling wild ride of a course! Such hard work, but so worth it. My highlight would have to be the many weeks of clinical placement - getting out there and putting in to practice all that we had been learning.
The dedication to exploring ethics and spiritual matters with students. Working alongside women as a midwife has a very spiritual dimension to it, and to have focused on this throughout uni has been so helpful.
I commenced a graduate year at Sunshine Hospital in 2014, and stayed there working as a core midwife for another 9 months after that. Since then, I've been working as a caseload midwife through Sunshine.
Caseload Midwife - Sunshine Hospital Working with women through their pregnancy, birth and postnatal period. I work as an on-call midwife to provide continuity of care; and work with women having hospital and homebirths.
The focus on ethics and spirituality helps me greatly in this profession. I primarily work with young women, aboriginal women and refugee women and their families, and my study at ACU benefits me greatly.
