|Student Contribution Band:||Band 1|
|Administered by:||School of Nursing, Midwifery & Nutrition (pre 2015)|
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. Students are briefly introduced to birth and postnatal care as a scaffold to NS5133 (Healthy Labour and Birth) and NS5135 (Complex Midwifery Care). Content will include physiology of reproduction, pre-conceptual health, physiology of conception, physiological adaptations to pregnancy, antenatal screening, antenatal care for well women, antenatal education, birth preparation and an introduction to postnatal care. Students will be introduced to Lesley Page's (2000), 'five steps of evidence based midwifery' and Marie Berg's (2005), model of 'genuine caring' as an underpinning for their own individual midwifery philosophy and to reinforce the importance of a woman centred approach to midwifery led care.
