Follow Through Journey

Hey everyone

I was just wondering if anyone else here has been doing Follow Throughs. If so, how did you find it? Do you think it was helpful, required too many people, not enough? 

I'm enjoying it, but finding that the time factor is very hard. I'm doing two days per week at the hospital, four days at uni (one of those overlaps) and then have work to put in between and on top of that. How does everyone find the time to live...?

Anyway,
keep studyin' hard...

erm, i think the general conclusion is you dont.

:(
Ah.. right. Glad that's cleared up for me then :P

Are you doing follow throughs?
Is a follow through like a case load? Where you look after one woman all the way through her care?

No... umm, this says it far better than i would:



The follow through journey is a innovative program developed to provide high quality and real life experiences for bachelor of midwifery students like myself. The concept of a FTJ mean the ongoing relationship between a woman and a student from the initial contact in pregnancy through to the weeks immediatly after the woman has birthed her baby. The follow through journey is a completely voluntary program and women can choose to share as much of their journey and pregnancy as they like with the student. This time spent together can involve times such as attending ante natal appointments together, ultra sound scans, childbirth education classes, having me there as a support person for the labour and birth of the baby or whatever other activities relating to pregnancy and birth that a woman would allow a student to be involved in.
