The Need for Training

Births in community settings, and community services in general, are gaining more attention as an option for some low risk mums (The Birthplace Study, 2014; NICE, 2014), and to support continuity of care for mums (Better Births, 2016).

Despite this, community-specific training, where resources are low, seems to be rarely provided for community-based healthcare professionals.

Aims & Objectives

To provide a hands-on practical session that offers clear guidelines and builds confidence on important elements in the management of emergency skills that may be needed when women birth in the community.

Relevant For

Those who attend planned or unplanned births in the community, such as community midwives, independent midwives, paramedics, MCAs, GPs and practice development midwives who will facilitate skill sharing with colleagues.

Content

This one-day course will review and update on important elements in the management of emergency skills that may be needed when women birth at home.

It will include:

  • Vaginal breech birth.
  • Neonatal resuscitation.
  • Cord prolapse (to include case discussion).
  • Shoulder dystocia (also in water birth).
  • Maternal collapse.
  • Postpartum haemorrhage (PPH).
  • A physiological birth session (paramedics only).
  • Communication in a pre-hospital obstetric emergency.
  • Profession-specific workstations – communication
    with the 999 team, midwifery jargon-busting.
  • Pre-eclampsia
  • Antepartum haemorrhage (APH)
