Over twelve years ago Amanda began to challenge the practice of immediate cord clamping after realizing that this common routine practice was not evidence based and deprived babies of their full blood volume causing iron deficiency anaemia. Amanda has been nominated and won several awards for this work including Midwife of the Year 2015, British Journal of Midwifery and Midwife of the Year 2012, Yorkshire Evening Post. Amanda is co-inventor of the Lifestart (bedside resuscitaire) trolley.

During this period of changing practice Amanda has often found herself the recipient of negative behaviours from some colleagues who opposed her “boat rocking” behavior and she found their behavior perplexing and very damaging. Dany Griffiths and Amanda are co-founders of #SaynotobullyinginMidwifery a facebook group which reaches out to Midwives who are recipients of bullying behavior and offers communal support and advice in an attempt to influence positive

Abstract:

Bullying affects staff, patients and families. This presentation will address bullying within the Midwifery field, what it is and why it is a problem. We will discuss how bullying is related to culture, and why attempts to change culture often fail. Work to try to shape a new response to bullying must include an awareness of culture, but more importantly, efforts to reduce bullying should follow a Person Centered Approached (PCA). We will discuss what PAC approaches look like, their dynamics and potency.

Japan Eriko Shinohara, Ph.D, CNM, RN, PHN

Dr. Eriko Shinohara is a certified nurse-midwife in Japan. She worked at University hospitals, birth centers, clinics and psychiatric clinics as a midwife. During her career she attended many natural physiological births, especially working at birth a center. After her graduate Ph.D program at St.Luke’s International University, she started her career in research and teaching, she is now Assistant professor at Tokyo Healthcare University.

Abstract:

In Japan, midwives are not allowed to suture, except for in emergencies. In this presentation we will discuss the practice of “waiting” and supporting the natural process that allows a woman to birth her baby gently. We also will be discussing practical skills that help prevent lacerations via a gentle hands-on technique. In cases when the midwife does need to intervene, the internal exam should be minimal and gentle to prevent perineal edema and laceration. In this presentation we will be introduced to the kurenme birth clip. These small metal clips have been used by Japanese midwives for many years to treat perineal tears and as an alternative to suturing of small tears that could otherwise cause additional trauma to the area. In this presentation, we will overview and learn how to use the birth clip in a clinical situation.

United States Nell Tharpe, MS CNM, CRNFA, FACNM

Nell Tharpe, CNM, CRNFA, MS, FACNM began her journey to midwifery after the birth of her first child. She attended births as a nurse and with home birth midwives, and then obtained her Certificate in Nurse-Midwifery from the State University of New York in 1986. She began active clinical practice in Maine, offering women holistic health care, attending births in small community hospitals, and working in the operating room as a surgical first assistant which is where she honed her suturing skills.

A committed life-long learner, Nell received her Master of Science degree in Midwifery from Philadelphia University in 2003. Nell’s passion is bridging the gap between clinical practice and emerging evidence. Her focus is on teaching midwifery skills to foster excellence in midwifery and women’s health care in every practice setting.

Nell is the original author of the widely used midwifery text Clinical Practice Guidelines for Midwifery and Women’s Health, now in its 5th edition, and sold in over 24 counties. She is an adjunct professor at Thomas Jefferson University, in Philadelphia and provides workshops as an independent Perinatal and Women’s Health Consultant.


United States Nell Tharpe, MS CNM, CRNFA, FACNM
Abstract:

While most midwives are diligent about maintaining pelvic floor integrity during birth, genital tract trauma occurs in up to 70% of women during vaginal birth. Birthing women expect midwives to be skilled and confident in their ability to perform perineal repair. This complex skill set requires multiple learning opportunities to develop both competence and the ability to suture with confidence. Perineal repair skills require manual dexterity and the ability to visually identify and approximate anatomic structures. The ability to perform an effective wound closure requires midwives actively master the skills required for systematic wound evaluation and anatomic re-­‐approximation of tissues. Supportive mentoring and intentional self-­‐directed practice are critical to the learning process. This session focuses on the equipment, supplies, and technical skills used during suturing of the pelvic floor after birth, and recommendations for simulation and practice.
