Using a woman centred primary health care approach, this unit will prepare students theoretically and practically 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 continuity relationships with women.
Upon successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Analyse and understand midwifery and other theory applicable to women and their babies during and after labour;
2. Apply theories and research to practice with women in labour, while giving birth and immediately after;
3. Show abilities in forming and maintaining midwifery relationships with women across the spectrum of pregnancy, labour and birth and the early parenting time, using a women-centred midwifery philosophy; and
4. Achieve a satisfactory practice level.
