About the Webinar
During this webinar, Cathy will take you through her experiences of women birthing in theatre, and look at how theatre staff attempt to help women have as normal a birthing experience as possible, in what is typically thought of as an emergency or medical setting. Working closely with our colleagues in these environments ensures the best possible outcomes for mothers and babies, and results in positive working environments for all staff.
The key discussion points throughout this webinar will include:
- Theatres and the midwife - the odd couple?
- How did we get here?
- Commonality - are we all that different? A discussion on relevant standards
- Expectations and reality
- What is best practice in birth in theatre?
By the end of the webinar, participants will:
- be able to reflect on local practice, and identify midwifery commonality between theatres and the delivery suite;
- have an understanding of historical and political changes that have driven practice over time;
- be able to identify and reflect on the relevant standards governing midwifery practice in the OR; and
- have a clear understanding of the roles theatre staff play in a delivery in the theatre (OR) environment, and be able to identify their role within the team.
If you have ever taken a woman to theatre for any stage of her labour or birth (or even postnatal care), then this is a webinar for you. You will gain valuable insight into the perspectives and experiences of your colleagues, who are there (like you) to assist a woman on her journey to motherhood.
