You are invited to attend a maternity emergencies simulation, in which we will cover potential birth/neonatal emergencies and their immediate management with a MDT approach. Each simulation will include a neonatal life support demonstration and practice, followed by 2 to 3 scenario based SIMs. These may include:

  • Postpartum haemorrhage
  • Shoulder dystocia
  • Cord prolapse
  • Maternal collapse
  • Breech birth

There will be a chance for all participants to be involved. A debrief will occur following each SIM to share learning.

 

Learning outcomes

Attendees will gain a deeper understanding of the management of maternity emergencies in the community and each professionals role.

 

**4 places available for each session: 2 Paramedics and 2 ECAs**

Full addresses will be shared after booking. Some events will be held at a staff member’s home address.
