In order to help support and facilitate the growth of midwifery we regularly have students at our practice. WEM is a teaching practice affiliated with Ryerson, McMaster and Laurentian Midwifery Education Program as well as the Internation Education Programme (IEP). Students are normally involved in all aspects of client care. Our students are generally placed with us for 3-10 month periods.
Depending on the placement and their life experience, the student will have different skills and knowledge. As a client of WEM a student may be working with your midwives as a team and is always under the supervisor of your primary midwife. Many client find the additional knowledge and support during the prenatal, labour and deliver, as well as postpartum period very beneficial. We encourage clients to help by giving  feedback to students and midwives to encourage and facility their growth
