1457399827_1Two elective courses offered by the Midwifery Education Program in Winter 2017 may be of interest to you as we enter the course intentions period for 2016-2017. Both have limited enrolment.  See this post for details.

MWF 108 Aboriginal Childbearing is now open for the first time to non-midwifery students, by popular demand. This course explores Indigenous history, experiences and expressions of power as they relate to Indigenous women and childbearing. Indigenous models of teaching and learning are used to explore these topics, with an emphasis on self-reflection, critical thinking and decolonizing understandings of history, experiences and ways of seeing the world.

MWF 325 Birth and Its Meaning is now open to all Ryerson students for the first time (previously only available to FCS students). This course explores representations of pregnancy and birth in society and culture, including popular culture and the media; creative arts such as film, literature, visual art, and other cultural expressions. Attention to diversity in representation and how representations reflect and/or challenge social relationships of power are central to the course. A major piece of creative art work is the final assignment for this course.
