Abstract

Introduction: Entry to practice into the midwifery profession has changed in Australia in the last fifteen years; Bachelor of Midwifery, Dual Degree, Masters and Postgraduate Midwifery courses are all accredited courses leading to registration as a midwife. This has encouraged a variety of students with diverse cultural and societal backgrounds to enter into midwifery programs. These new students bring with them different experiences and perceptions regarding normal birth, the role of the midwife and breastfeeding.
