This subject introduces students to childbearing as a normal, but significant life event for a woman and her family. Students apply their developing understanding of anatomy and physiology to childbearing. Through the use of simulated environments, students develop communication skills to enable them to work effectively with women through the childbearing period. The subject focuses on the physical and emotional changes during pregnancy, labour and birth and the postnatal period and their potential effects on women's experience of childbearing.
