Labor and Birth Complication Skill Suite (8 hours)

Appropriate for Phase 3 (primary students) and practicing midwives

But what if something goes wrong at the birth? Parents ask it, and midwives and student midwives want to know too. Make sure you’re prepared for shoulder dystocia, nuchal hand, cord or arm, abnormal fetal heart tones, uterine rupture, cord prolapse and other unexpected events in this intensive workshop. Skills listed below will be taught, practiced and evaluated in the workshop. Students who show competency in the skills can have them “signed off” by the instructor in the PSGM if desired.
