Unpacking Traumatic Experiences

4 hours CME

As midwives we are there for women and their families throughout some incredible experiences, and that is just delicious food for our souls.

Sometimes though, things don't go well and we are with women experiencing trauma, grief, and even death.

How do WE cope?

How do we know how to pick up and carry on?

How do we know how to work with women and families when their experiences are traumatic?

Have you ever had that day where you ran from a severe postpartum haemorrhage straight back to a happily breastfeeding mum?

Have you resuscitated a very poorly newborn then headed home to your family - with not a care in the world?

I think, and many agree, that as midwives we hold onto trauma, and we don't deal with things sometimes, and that can lead to exhaustion, burnout, and just being flat and compassion spent.

Give yourself a gift and join us on this course - it is for us as midwives - to help figure out what we do in those times when things have gone really bad.

From grief, to guilt, to numb... let's come back out the other side!

Hi and Welcome to Simply Midwifery Education!

I have designed these online progressive education courses with you in mind.

As a midwife of 20+ years I know what it is like to keep up and keep progressing year after year. We want to learn the latest information, revisit that which we know, but sometimes life takes over and where do we find the time?

I have produced these online courses to help bridge the gap between the wanting to, and the doing. Easy and quick but full of thought provoking practice issues, my hope is that "continuing education" and meeting your recertification needs is enjoyable and inspiring.

I will keep abreast (pun intended - ah the joy of midwifery humour!) of what's new or challenging in our professional and practice lives, and aim to provide up to the minute courses that meets everyone's individual needs.

Got an idea for a course? Something you think we can do with knowing more about? Let me know!

Many thanks
