Midwifery Care 2: Pregnancy and Prenatal Care
Course Code: NURS 517
Midwifery Care 1 includes the normal pregnancy and an in-depth study of routine prenatal care procedures. It also includes assessment of each woman’s individual needs and treatments for common discomforts and problems in pregnancy. This course also includes information relevant to more complicated aspects of prenatal care: early pregnancy bleeding, management of the Rh-negative mother, anemia, infections, trauma, miscarriage, post-dates pregnancy, gestational diabetes, and hypertensive disorders. Throughout Midwifery Care courses 1-4, students will use case management exercises to practice critical thinking and risk assessment skills, apply precepts of evidence-based practice, and work toward acquiring skills as culturally competent providers and understanding of the midwife as a community health worker.
