NARM Midwifery Bridge Category 1: Emergency Skills

During pregnancy and birth, maternal concerns often either start out as slight variations from normal, e.g. a slightly elevated blood pressure, or unexpectedly, e.g. a surprise breech. While these situations may not constitute emergencies from the get go, midwifes must be able to identify when action is required. This bundle addresses a variety of concerns affecting the birthing person and teaches midwives not only to identify and address them, but do so in a way that is respectful to the mother-baby unit.
