Biography:

Karen H. Strange is a Certified Professional Midwife (1996), American Academy of Pediatrics/Neonatal Resuscitation Program Instructor (1992).

She is founder of the Integrative Resuscitation of the Newborn workshop, which includes the physiology of newborn transition. She teaches the “when, why and how” of helping newborns that are either not breathing or not breathing well, with incredible clarity. She helps the provider have a sense of what the baby is experiencing which leads to a more appropriate response to newborns in need. Karen has done over 900+ hours of debrief/case reviews regarding resuscitation. She is an international speaker and has taught over 9,000 people worldwide. There are many neonatal resuscitation instructors but Karen teaches practical neonatal resuscitation, regardless of the place of birth. And her teachings instill a strong sense of confidence and competence in providers, so they can respond in the least traumatic way.

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).

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.

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.

When, Why and How to Breathe for Baby at Birth: More than Neonatal Resuscitation and the Failures in Resuscitation
The transition babies experience as they emerge from the womb and become air breathers is often not well understood by many birth professionals. 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 and breathing air. The successful adaptation to extrauterine life is the necessity of clearing fetal lung fluid. This is a transition that all babies must do when they are born, regardless of cord status.
