Using a woman-centred, primary health care approach, this unit continues to draw on midwifery, medical, pharmacological and other theory and research to assist the student in the development of midwifery competence to support women during pregnancy, labour and early parenting. The substantial practice component of this unit is designed to assist students to form useful midwifery relationships through the continuity of care model. The student will build on capabilities developed in Continuity Midwifery A PG with an emphasis on wellness and complexity in midwifery work. In this unit the student will regain their competence as a midwife for re-entry into the midwifery workforce.

This unit is co-taught with 11303 Continuity Midwifery B and 11317 Continuity Midwifery B PG.
