This subject prepares students to assess, plan, implement and evaluate midwifery care for women who have complex needs during labour, birth and puerperium. The subject provides theoretical underpinnings that engage students to explore how midwives can support these women and builds student capacity to acquire the knowledge, skills and attributes for midwifery practice in complex situations. Students also engage in simulated learning and develop the requisite midwifery practice skills. Students engage in midwifery practice and this subject provides opportunity for them to reflect on their practice. In the midwifery practice setting, students work with midwives and implement care based on clinical decisions developed in collaboration with others. Students are expected to continue with their continuity of midwifery care experiences.
