Perinatal Conference 2018

Originally offered in 2018 at our GOLD Perinatal Conference.
The birth of a child is a time of profound transition and adjustment. The care that a family receives during the perinatal period can have a lasting impact on the rest of their lives. Respectful, kind, culturally sensitive and evidence based care results in families who feel valued and empowered as they start the journey of parenthood. This has far reaching implications for the physical and mental health for both parents and child. As care providers during this vulnerable period, it’s important that we have a clear understanding of the potential impact of our practices.

Clients, Colleagues, or Critics? Negotiating Gaps between evidence and community standards

What does emerging science on neurobiology and epigenetics tell us about decision making in pregnancy, labour and birth? Does birth place matter? Should caesarean reduction be the goal? How long is labour? How long is human gestation? How accurate is an ultrasound date? What happens when clients want care that does not align with community standard? How do our messages about evidence and risk affect quality and safety? What do women say? What do providers believe? This session will explore new patient-centered outcomes from research on quality, safety, risk and responsibility. Together we will review and discuss emerging tools and strategies to facilitate conversations about the best available evidence and respectful maternity care.

Managing Back Pain in Labour Using Sterile Water Injections

Up to 30% of women experience severe back pain in labour. In qualitative studies women have described how labour back pain limited their mobility and altered their plans for analgesia use. Injections of small amounts of sterile water into the skin of the lower back are used to alleviate back pain for up to two hours. Whilst much research supports the effectiveness of the technique critics suggest a placebo effect or dismiss the procedure as 'midwifery voodoo'. This presentation will examine the causes and physiology of back pain in labour, examine and critique the research into sterile water injections and describe the techniques, benefits and limitations for use in clinical practice.

This lecture was originally offered as part of the GOLD Midwifery 2019 Conference Package.

Optimizing Milk Production Lecture Pack

Concerns about milk production are the primary reason for supplementing and premature weaning. Because of this, it is essential for health care providers who are supporting breastfeeding families to have a thorough understanding of how milk synthesis works. There are numerous factors to consider including the anatomy of the breast, hormone levels, the baby’s ability to effectively remove milk, the frequency of feedings etc. Join our experts for a focused look at what we know about milk production, how to establish, and maintain it, and specialized situations such as exclusive pumping and relactation.
