Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
demonstrate foundational knowledge to support parents to care for the well newborn.
discuss cultural and social influences on women's experiences of pregnancy, childbirth, and the transition to parenthood.
identify psychophysiological factors impacting childbearing, for well women, from preconception through to the early postnatal period.
discuss the midwife’s role in facilitating choice, promoting an optimal transition to parenthood
