Abstract

A Patchwork text is typically a series of short pieces of writing relating to one topic from different perspectives (Winter 2003). For example: critique of an article; detailed analytical accounts of personal experience; appraisal of culture and society within practice. The pieces are written over a period of time and discussed with peers for review to encourage reflection in an attempt to move away from surface learning. This particular patchwork offers a critical appraisal of support offered to a breastfeeding woman, from a student midwife perspective. Through the medium of a patchwork text, Amy Morton was able to critically reflect on her practice, appreciate the cultural issues regarding the woman's experience and explore the relationship between key ideas to engage in a deeper level of learning and formulate an action plan for her future practice.
