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.
The Faculty of Health, Education, Medicine and Social Care is the largest in ARU, with over 7,000 students. Our Faculty is teeming with expertise and primed to meet the demand for creating health professionals, teachers, doctors, scientists and educators for the three districts we serve: Chelmsford, Cambridge and Peterborough.
We have been training undergraduates for professional roles for over 25 years, with a reputation for quality, dedication and ambition balanced with student satisfaction.
We know that to give our students the very best experiential learning, prior to getting into the workplace, simulation is second to none, for safe, realistic, learning environments. We have invested heavily in purpose built simulated wards, science labs and skills space, to support our students through their learning.
