Our Childbirth Emergencies in the Community course was a huge success

The Childbirth Emergencies in the Community (CEC) course at University Hospitals Coventry & Warwick was a huge success on Friday 7th April. Community midwives and paramedics from the hosting hospital and George Eliot Hospital attended the one day course to further their CPD learning.

The aim of the CEC course is to provide a hands-on practical session that offers clear guidelines and builds the confidence of community midwives and paramedics in the management of emergency skills that may be needed when they attend planned or unplanned community births.

Course director Michelle Keeler has put together an incredible programme taught by experts in their respective fields, allowing midwives, paramedics and GPs to review and update their skills.

The course outlined:
• Upright & upright complicated vaginal breech delivery
• Neonatal resuscitation
• Cord prolapse
• Shoulder dystocia (also in water birth)
• Maternal collapse
• Postpartum haemorrhage (PPH)

And was taught and delivered by our fantastic faculty:
• Michelle Keeler – Senior Midwife and Supervisor of Midwives, Medway NHS Foundation Trust
• Keith Bromwich – Lecturer Paramedic Emergency Care, Oxford Brookes University
• Aimee Yarrington – Education and Training Officer
• Regina Covington – Independent Midwife

The feedback received from this training course has been very positive with delegates saying that the study day was “much needed”, that the instructors were “knowledgeable” with a good balance of theory, case studies and practical sessions. The course also seemed to help some midwives with their confidence, as one stated that the course had “perfectly addressed fears and insecurities of being on call for homebirths”.

For those of you who missed out on attending the course, check out the list of courses on our website. We look forward to seeing you at one.
