Full course description

ASM Block 2

Course Description: In this course, students will gain a basic understanding of how the midwife determines the normal progression of labor and delivery. Students will learn how to evaluate the risk status of a client at the onset and duration of labor. The student is asked to evaluate the risk factors that can arise in the intrapartum period and gain an understanding of how to recognize or rule out signs and symptoms of complications that can change the client's risk status.

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.
