This unit is being phased out, no new enrolments are being taken.
This unit introduces you to the role and scope of practice of a midwife by examining primary health care as the framework for midwifery care and support of a pregnant woman and her family during her childbearing experience. You will build on your knowledge of human bioscience and behavioural sciences to develop an understanding of pregnancy. You will begin an exploration of trends within the Australian family that impact on women in the context of childbearing and midwifery practice.
You will examine models of care that integrate choice, continuity, and control for the woman surrounding the birthing experience. As part of the multidisciplinary team, you will develop competence in recognising and implementing culturally appropriate midwifery models of care during pregnancy.
