Can you share your story?
If you are pregnant and your baby is due to arrive between November and March, you may be interested in taking part in a programme in which medical students at Cambridge University learn from pregnant people. The visits are completely confidential and your name will not be mentioned in any coursework. The students will not be examining you at any time.
What does it involve?
A pair of students (or two separate pairs if you wish), will be allocated to you to conduct 3 or 4 visits/ or video call meetings with you. Ideally the visits will be at your home, but we appreciate that you may need ‘virtual visits’ over Zoom as a secondary option.
Why is the module important?
The Preparing for Patients module helps students learn about pregnancy and the importance of building a relationship with patients. The students are in their third year, studying medical science and have only met a few patients. The course enables them to gain broader, more personal knowledge of how being pregnant and having a child affects you and your family. It also helps to connect their studies with real life.
