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.

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.
