Using a woman centred primary health care approach, this unit will prepare students theoretically to be 'with woman' during a woman's labour and the birth of her baby. Based on a view of childbearing as a normal life event, students will use midwifery and other theory to build a strong basis on which to form relationships with women. Through reflexion the PG student will gain new knowledge to inform their developing midwifery philosophy.
This unit is co-taught with 11334 The Work of Birth.
On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Provide evidence of in-depth analysis and understanding of midwifery and other theories applicable to women and their babies during and after labour;
2. Critically appraise contemporary research and its application to midwifery work with women in labour, during and immediately after birth; and
3. Reflexively examine and explain the difference between nursing and midwifery philosophies and models of care.
