Student placements at the Toronto Birth Centre are an important way to increase midwifery students’ experience in an out-of-hospital birth setting. At TBC, students experience support for active birth and cultural safety in an Indigenous- and midwife-led facility that stimulates collaboration amongst midwives and between practice groups. Students are placed at TBC in the Fall and Winter semesters of each academic year of the MEP.
The TBC would like to thank all the midwives who include TBC placement students in their clients’ labour and birth experiences, and we recognize the skills involved in including students in client care.
The practice group will receive a certificate of recognition, as well as a gift card for snacks and refreshments to enhance a practice meeting or event of their choice.
Going forward, TBC will recognize a practice group each academic year for their inclusion of TBC-placed students.
