Biography:

Karen H. Strange Certified Profession Midwife and American Academy of Pediatrics/Neonatal Resuscitation Program instructor since 1991. She is founder of the "Integrative Resuscitation of the Newborn" workshop, which includes the physiology of newborn transition, the evidence-based studies having to do with neonatal resuscitation, the “when and how” to do neonatal resuscitation in a non-traumatizing way. She incorporates the babies experience of birth and tools for healing when things do not go as planned. Her course is especially adapted to those that work in the out-of-hospital settings. She has taught over 8,000 people worldwide.

Neonatal Transitional Physiology, Delayed Cord Clamping De-Mystified
In this captivating explanation you will get a deep and clear understanding with new insight about the transition that babies make at birth physiologically and psychologically. Learning how we go from fluid filled lungs and oxygenating with the placenta to becoming air breathers without their placenta. You will learn what is most important in the moments when the baby is born. This goes way beyond learning about blood volume and red blood cells.

The Baby’s Experience of Birth, and Tools for Healing and Integration
There is an embryological blueprint for what happens at birth (and before) for the baby on all levels of their being, physiologically, psychologically and emotionally. An awareness of this blueprint creates a new conceptual framework for what is embedded in the process of birth. Once you are aware of the sequence of events that occurs spontaneously throughout the process of gestation, labor, birth and beyond (a sequence that all mammals follow) you will have a glimpse of how birth was “set up to work in case no one was there”. When interruptions occur in the sequence of birth a profound imprint is left which impacts how we come into relationship with everyone we meet, with ourselves, and how we live our lives daily. Specific methods are taught for healing, repair and integration.

When, why and how to give those first few breaths at birth
This lecture will create a clear visual image and understanding of what is happening for the baby as she takes her first breaths and shifts from oxygenating through the placenta and cord to beginning to use her lungs. Participants will learn when, why and how they need to assist a newborn in respiratory distress or in need of neonatal resuscitation.

Meconium: Facts, Implications, Perspective and Understanding
This lecture will be an in depth look at what is involved when meconium presents itself at birth. What the evidence based studies repeatedly say, what the guidelines state, and how the standards of care do not reflect the studies. This lecture will clearly explain and go through why meconium occurs, what meconium stained water means, and then how to proceed. It will offer tools for further inspection and decisive action when it is a problem. It will differentiate and discuss the different definitions between light, dark, thin, thick and particulate. A further understanding of Meconium Aspiration Syndrome MAS will be covered. The entire presentation will be based on the latest evidence-based studies regarding meconium, suctioning and intubation (its purpose and what it really does).

Pitfalls During Resuscitation of the Newborn
Karen Strange delves into the subject that she knows best: neonatal resuscitation. Karen has accumulated over 900 hours of case reviews surrounding neonatal resuscitation. She focuses on what gets missed, what is misunderstood and the role that fear and panic plays. In this lecture, Karen sheds light on the most common failures and misconceptions that come up in neonatal resuscitation. She’ll explain the key failures as well as the key components to successfully breathing for a newborn. You’ll leave her lecture feeling a new sense of clarity and deep confidence in how you respond to babies at birth.

When You Know Better, Do Better
This hour will be about honoring midwifery within the history of how birth changed through standard obstetrical practices. Acknowledging and reframing what normal is through the lens of instinctual behaviors. We will look at the embryological blueprint of birth (mammalian birth) as a template for normal and how one can support normal/instinctual in all birthing environments. Beginning from the position that “knowing normal” is baseline, critical and foundational to midwifery care. It is imperative to also know what “not normal” or pathology is in order to provide safe, life saving care when needed. We will investigate how fear often feeds unnecessary interventions regardless of where birth occurs. Techniques will be given for how to work with and regulate the fear one might experience. This GOLD inspired presentation will be filled with storytelling, historical perspective and the captivating journey of birth. Karen delivers a paradigm shifting, dynamic lecture to expand our midwifery and birth mindset.
