This midwifery unit within the Clinical Studies Cluster, introduces students to clinical and professional midwifery issues using a quality and safety of care framework with a focus on care of the woman during labour and birth. The content builds on the previous units studied and extends students’ knowledge, skills and attributes in relation to caring for women during labour and birth and immediately in the postnatal period. The unit provides opportunities for students to develop further their knowledge of the anatomy and physiology which underpins the process of labour and birth. Students will explore the role of the midwife in supporting a woman in labour to optimise the outcome of a physiological birth, incorporating physical, emotional and spiritual dimensions of care. The cultural needs of women from Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander families and other cultural groups will be encompassed. Students will have opportunity to apply and integrate knowledge and skills learnt in this unit and previous units during a two (2) week (80 hour) clinical placement and by continuing to recruit and maintain Continuity of Care experiences.
