Virtual pre-hospital obstetric training session


We are hosting a Teams training session for frontline clinicians, of all grades, to discuss the full range of maternity jobs and any concerns you may have.

The event will be held between 10am-1pm on the 6th May 2021. 

This will be led by Kerrie Wykes, Registered Midwife/Student Paramedic and Daimon Wheddon, Clinical Lead for Maternity.

 We will be discussing a variety of topics such as:

  • Changing maternal physiology and the effects on patient assessment.
  • Pregnancy concerns such as, miscarriage, pre-eclampsia, eclampsia and antepartum haemorrhage.
  • Assessment and management of a normal labour and birth.
  • Obstetric emergencies such as shoulder dystocia, cord prolapse, breech birth and postpartum haemorrhage
  • A brief overview of neonatal physiology and why it matters in neonatal resuscitation.

 If you would like to attend, please email to be added to the meeting.

Time will be allocated afterwards for any further questions.

We look forward to seeing you all virtually on Teams!
