Synopsis

This course develops student's knowledge and wisdom in relation to women who, for psycho-social-spiritual-cultural reasons, find childbearing or mothering particularly challenging. Attention is given to the development of advanced interpersonal skills required to build rapport, work in partnership and to sensitively and effectively advocate for women or assert oneself in situations of conflict. Professional aspects of the midwifery role are also explored. Students will self appraise their developing midwifery practice using the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Council's National Competency Standards for the Midwife. Attendance at the three day residential school (or equivalent activity) is compulsory.
