Abstract

This paper discusses the evaluation of educational activities developed and implemented in a tertiary based, pre-endorsement midwifery program in Brisbane, Australia. The development of the experience-based activities outlined was driven by the feminist philosophy of the curriculum and a commitment to helping students develop as woman-centred practitioners. The activities focused on enabling students to hear women's stories of childbearing firsthand and understand these stories from the women's perspective, thus validating personal experience.
