Managing Midwife Complications and Emergencies

Core Skills all Midwives Need to Know Like the Back of Their Hands

Being a midwife is one of the most sacred jobs on earth. Our clients trust us at their most vulnerable, and it’s up to us to make sure they stay safe! That’s why it is so crucial to make sure you have the tools and skills to help their birth experience be positive. By knowing what to do in even the most extreme situations, you’ll be able to confidently face challenges to achieve a happy outcome.

In Managing Midwife Complications and Emergencies, you’ll learn vital information so you can be prepared. In this class, I’ll tell you how to address common complications throughout labor. By the end, you’ll know how to handle a breech presentation, an umbilical cord prolapse, or a shoulder dystocia. You’ll understand what to do if you get a non-reassuring fetal heart rate and know when and how to transport a client in distress. We’ll also go over procedures for both maternal and neonatal resuscitations as well as postpartum hemorrhages.

As a midwife with over 16 years in the healthcare world, I know firsthand these topics can be a bit intense! My goal is to make sure that, should you find yourself in such a situation, you can immediately snap into action without second guessing yourself. By the end of the class, you’ll feel empowered to handle any delivery with expertise.

At Empowering Midwifery Education, we’re here to ensure you’re constantly learning and growing! Once you buy this course, you’ll have LIFETIME access and can revisit as needed.

Becoming a midwife has been a lifelong dream. I didn't realize that this wonderful profession would lead me down the path of business. I have found over the years that midwives need to understand business, accounting, financing, marketing, negotiating, and so much more to be successful in today's healthcare system. I love supporting women. By being able to participate in leadership roles and create amazing private practices, I can support midwives just as much as the pregnant women they care for! I am passionate about women's empowerment and women's business ownership. We can serve families best with independent, successful midwifery practices.

I have over 16 years’ of experience in health care. I have worked in hospitals, birth centers, and home settings. I have worked for large non-profit hospitals, small community hospitals, privately run birth centers, hospital-owned birth centers, my own home birth/birth center practice, and locum assignments. Being able to understand the business and financial side of midwifery has shown me how much easier a midwife's practice can be profitable and successful in today's health care ever-changing climate.

Let me help you start your own practice or improve the current midwifery business you are struggling with. I have years of billing, accounting, contracting, business plan writing, and midwifery clinical expertise to make your midwifery practice thrive no matter what stage it is in! Whether you want a small home birth practice, large birth center practice, or booming hospital midwifery practice, I can provide guidance, support, and resources to make your midwifery practice dreams a reality!
