This subject will incorporate the principles of primary health care, woman centred and value based care to explore the pathophysiology processes women experience and the pharmacological and non-pharmacological interventions to manage when they have a complex need in the pregnancy continuum. A complex need will be defined as a condition that will impact on the pregnancy if not treated, causing significant morbidity and mortality. The NMBA Midwifery Standards for Practice (2018) will be applied to explore the needs of childbearing women and their families requiring complex care across the pregnancy and birth continuum. The focus will be midwifery care that is safe and appropriate, supporting collaborative care within a multidisciplinary team. This includes women with pre-existing medical conditions.
