The care of the neonate who experiences deviations from normal health is the focus of this subject. Health problems associated with variations in gestational age and intrauterine growth, difficulties with feeding, adaptation to extrauterine life and a range of body system anomalies form part of the content covered. Students are introduced to the concept of family-centred care in the neonatal nursery and are required to formulate an in-depth understanding of the impact on the woman and her family of having a baby with complex needs. The importance of the midwives' role in supporting the woman through this experience is explored. The subject also has a clinical component.
