In anticipation of the revised RCOG breech guidelines expected to be published shortly AND to revise, share and learn new skills for vaginal breech birth come to this interactive workshop. Our sessions will update you on the recent research, explore how to support women to make informed choices around breech, identify usual physiological breech labour and birth and when to help mum or baby. The day will also cover supporting upright breech birthing and unexpected (unplanned) breech birth scenarios
The workshp will be led by Jenny Davidson, a UK midwife with 20 years clinical experience. Jenny has facilitated womens breech births and taught active breech birth for over 10 years. She has also also just completed her PhD in the subject of vaginal breech birth. The session will also be facilitated by Chris Draper, Supervisor of Midwives.
Ths will be a supportive space to enable sharing, learning together and to grow confidence with supporting birth safely.
Previous breech workshop participants have said:
"[this has given me] insight into physiology, research, evidence and also experience. The mix of these teaching methods and the dynamic teaching has given me confidence to learn and be more bold when discussing with colleagues and doctors, as a woman’s advocate"
"definitely, more prepared and knowledgeable about the physiology of breech birth"
"great mix from visual, teaching and hands on – also listening to what other midwives had to say about their experiences"
"Excellent Information and great teaching and demonstration"
