This subject prepares students to assess, plan and evaluate midwifery care for women who have complex needs during labour, birth, and the puerperium. The subject provides theoretical underpinnings that engage students to explore how midwives can support women and builds student capacity to acquire the knowledge, skills, and attributes for midwifery practice in complex situations. Students engage in simulated learning and develop the requisite midwifery practice skills. Students engage in midwifery practice and this subject provides the opportunity to reflect on this 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 their continuity of care experiences.
