Making practice connections (6 points)
Synopsis: Students will be introduced to the practice of midwifery by making connections with pregnant women in the community to gain an anthropological view of 'being with woman' in Semester one. The central concepts of woman-centredness and continuity of care in midwifery practice will be realised by students continuing to engage in the 'following through' of ten (10) pregnant women assigned in semester one expecting to give birth in the early weeks of semester two. An additional ten (10) women expecting to give birth early in semester one of the following year will be assigned to each student by mid semester regulated by a signed contractual agreement outlining the parameters of this engagement.

Contact Hours: This subject will require student attendance on campus and/or in practice for a maximum of 12 hours per week for 13 weeks. There will be time allocated in practice for students to complete clinical assessment.
