Description of module content:

You will learn to care for childbearing women under the direct supervision and instruction of the midwife and continue to develop competence and confidence in the performance of core midwifery skills for women and babies during the intrapartum period.

You will also develop the knowledge and skills required to care for women with pathological gynaecological conditions under the supervision of an appropriate practitioner. You will build on your learning about the importance of partnership working for the benefit of women and babies as detailed in the Competency Assessment Book.

This module continues to develop your experience in midwifery practice with placements in the birthing environments focussing on the intrapartum care of childbearing women (LOs 1-6). You will also gain gynaecological nursing experience and care for women with pathological gynaecological conditions (LOs 1, 2, 3, 4). You will have a named mentor in each area.

The focus of the gynaecological experience will be on caring for childbearing women and their families and women with gynaecological issues in partnership with a variety of health and social care professionals and service users themselves. You will have the opportunity to further develop clinical and interpersonal skills in women’s health care settings (LOs 1 – 6).

The practice will continue with gradual progression to increasing hands-on practice in accordance with a particular skill, situation, your own experience and mentor’s professional judgement. This will include learning from experience, reflection on and in practice and feedback from mentor and appropriate health professionals.
