Laura Gibbs Reflective Cycle

Satisfactory Essays
After participating in a well-managed physiological third stage, the student midwife further improved her learning experience and enhanced her knowledge by critically reflecting on the scenario using Gibbs' reflective cycle (1988). She concluded that Laura’s midwife demonstrated excellent midwifery values, good communication, competence, commitment, courage and compassion. She formulated a client centred care plan and delivered evidence based, safe and effective care, while protecting and supporting the birth process holistically. This experience has reinforced the student midwife’s view of the importance of keeping the midwifery skills up-to date and adhering to the ethical and legal duties while providing care for women and their families.
