COMPLEX BIRTH A
Credit points: 30
In this subject students will be assisted to recognise and manage situations that compromise the birth process and which have the potential to be harmful to the woman and the foetus/baby. Studies incorporate the provision of safe competent care during labour and birth whilst supporting the woman's choices and being an advocate for the woman. Developing an understanding of the boundaries of midwifery practice in a birth setting and knowing when to refer the woman to other health professionals as determined by the woman's need for care are explored. The subject also includes the management of situations such as emergency care, and birth options that may be considered as a result of the challenge to the normal birth process.
