Underpinning this unit is a belief that childbirth is essentially a normal and problem free experience. The unit will encourage you to develop attitudes that respect and support women in the decisions they make around birth and care of their newborn. You will develop the skills necessary to provide woman-centred care and guidance during the birthing and early parenting experience.
