Clinical practice subject



This subject builds on the anatomy and physiology of pregnancy, birth and the puerperium learnt in the pre-session subject. The subject provides the theoretical underpinnings to enable students to acquire the requisite knowledge, skills and attitudes for midwifery practice. The primary focus of this subject is on women experiencing a normal childbearing period. Complexities in pregnancy, birth and the puerperium, including the newborn will be introduced in this subject. Students will engage in role plays, case scenarios and simulated practice in providing care to women and their families throughout pregnancy, birth and the puerperium.

Professional practice placements are a compulsory requirement and are assessed within this subject.
