Develop your existing knowledge and skills by exploring the concept of normality and how this might be promoted.
This module addresses one of the major national and international concerns about childbirth; the rising rate of intervention. It will provide you with the underpinning knowledge and confidence required to address this situation by promoting normal childbirth. You’ll be encouraged to develop your existing knowledge and skills by exploring the concept of normality and determining how this might be promoted during the antenatal, intrapartum and postnatal periods. Both international and local perspectives will be analysed, enabling you to apply your learning in your current work setting, whilst deepening your understanding of alternative situations.
This module draws heavily on contemporary midwifery practice, and you’ll be expected to apply your learning in practice and reflect on this as part of the assessment. You can take this module standalone or as part of our MSc Advanced Midwifery Practice course.
