Full course description

ASM Block 3

Course Description: This course covers the care of the newborn during its transition into extrauterine life and in the weeks after birth. Emphasis is placed on understanding the normal physiology of newborn transition, and how this understanding relates to care provided by the midwife. Management of common concerns and routine post-natal care is also included in this course.

This course uses current research in midwifery and obstetrics to broaden the student’s understanding of the NARM skills and MEAC essential competencies learned under clinical supervision.
