Abstract:

A good birth is such a gift, and a complicated birth is the reason YOU are there. When a baby is born not breathing or not breathing well, it’s the birth practitioners job to step in and help. This goes beyond just having an NRP card. One wants confidence and competence to respond appropriately even if fear and panic may be filling your body.

Karen Strange is teaching the subject that she knows best: neonatal resuscitation and how newborns go from fluid filled lungs to air filled lungs. Karen has gathered data from around the globe and pinpointed the 5 most common mistakes/failures that occur in neonatal resuscitation.

She breaks down the 5 main failures and gives tips and clarity needed for successful resuscitation of the newborn, in the least traumatic way. Learn what often gets missed, and the most frequent misunderstandings regarding neonatal resuscitation. Feel competent and confident regarding when and how to respond to a newborn in distress.
