This subject incorporates the principles of primary health care, woman centred and value based care; to focus on developing knowledge and midwifery skills required to assist women and their families in reproductive health, conception and pregnancy. Content includes physiology of reproduction and conception, pre-conceptual health, physiology of conception, physiological adaptations to pregnancy, antenatal screening, antenatal care for well women and antenatal education. The use of medicines within the scope of midwifery practice in Australia is introduced. Students are briefly introduced to birth and postnatal care as a scaffold to NS5133 (Healthy Labour and Birth) and NS5135 (Complex Midwifery Care).
