Placental Birth
This presentation will explore midwifery practice in relation to placental birth. An overview of physiology will be provided. How midwives can provide an environment to support women during physiological placental birth will be discussed. Research relating to active management and its various components will be examined, for example, oxytocics, cord clamping and controlled cord traction. Common practices will be challenged, and suggestions for evidence-based and woman-centred approaches will be shared.
