ABSTRACT
This paper critically analyses the notion of midwifery epistemology and the ontological view that intuitive knowledge, while in built, develops into tacit knowledge. Through pre-registration midwifery programmes learning strategies are identified that enable students to develop tacit knowledge. The art of midwifery education, both pre-registration and lifelong, is to learn to believe in an individual's intuition. Intuitive knowledge is a type of knowing, the art of midwifery that is difficult to articulate but fundamental for best practice. Midwives rely on the model that childbirth is a normal phenomenon. The learner has to travel a complex and exciting journey, meeting academic requirements, fulfil women's expectations and learn to listen to her/his inner self. Through this process of learning, theoretical knowledge, developing clinical acumen and awareness of self, the sum of the parts is more than the whole.
