    Using a women centred, primary health care approach, this unit will facilitate the student's acquisition of knowledge, skills and attitude in working with women and their partners and families while women are 'with child'. Based on a view of childbearing as a normal life event, students use midwifery and other theory to develop their understanding of the intricacies of women and their babies in well pregnancies.

    Learning Outcomes

    Upon successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

    1. Analyse, understand and apply theory and research to practice with well pregnant women, their unborn babies and their families;

    2. Discuss the social and cultural influences women experience in pregnancy and the possible implications for midwifery work;

    3. Show evidence of their ability to form working relationships with women who are with child; and

    4. Achieve a satisfactory practice level.
