This midwifery course is for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women who want to become registered midwives.
As with the Bachelor of Midwifery, this course prepares Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students to work as entry-level midwives in any maternity setting – focusing on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and their families.
Students will enrol in this midwifery course in an ‘away-from-base’ capacity. The ‘away-from-base’ mode enables students to live and work in their local community while studying and attending four residentials of one week each in Brisbane throughout the year.
The Bachelor of Midwifery (Indigenous) degree will teach you how to:
- manage normal pregnancy and childbirth
- provide effective postnatal, maternal and newborn care
- provide safe and reliable care that meets the individual psychological, emotional, physical, social and spiritual needs of mothers
- promote positive health outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and children in rural and remote locations.
