This subject contributes to the achievement of the knowledge, skills and competency required for midwifery practice. Students work with women and their babies in a supportive role while further developing their skills in assessment and screening. Communication and documentation skills are also developed.

Students are provided with practice opportunities in clinical facilities for predetermined periods of time throughout the session. The clinical practice introduces students to the care of women and their babies in a supportive role in the antenatal period, during labour and birth, and in the postnatal and neonatal periods. Students commence their continuity of midwifery care experiences and have the opportunity to recruit women during their midwifery practice experience placements.
