Kitchener Waterloo Midwifery Associates is a teaching practice that provides supervision to students from the Midwifery Pre-Registration Program (IMPP) and the Midwifery Education Program, a four-year degree program offered by Ryerson University, Laurentian University, and McMaster University.
After completing their required course work and emergency competency workshops, students shadow one of the midwives to receive practical experience. Based the stage of their education, students can provide different levels of midwifery care under supervision of a Registered Midwife. If your midwife is supervising a student you will be offered to allow the student to get involved in your care. However, if you do not wish to do so, your midwife will make sure that your request is recognized.
