Student participation is common and vital in most midwifery practices, and yet, clients should be able to consent or refuse this at the start of care. This consent form will give your clients the information for who, what, when, where, why for all student involvement in your practice. This form is especially important for any clinical act, including but not limited to phlebotomy, pelvic exams, and suturing. Additionally, use this informed consent for all students in management phases where they will be primary midwives under supervision for the family’s care and birth. Many disagreements and discomforts could be avoided if clients were genuinely informed. This informed consent aims to do just this.
