Casearean section. Midwives play their part

Increasingly babies are being born through an incision in their mothers abdomen. Sometimes this is after the mother has gone into labour but often without labour having been initiated at all. The baby is plucked without prior warning from familiar surroundings and brought into the world. The mother then has to recover from a major abdominal operation. Such surgery requires many weeks if not months of recovery. Why is it that this proceedure is increasingly required to bring babies into the world? On the 9th of February midwives in Otago are coming together to consider this issue to explore what is that we do that can might set women on this path. We are also looking at what we can do that can support women to avoid unnecessary caesarean section.
If you want more information about this call me through the 0800 Otago Polytechnic number and i will give you the phone number for registrations.

Hi Carolyn

How was the dicussion on February 9? I would be interested to know how it went.
The picture of baby being born made me feel slightly on edge, he or she looks so unhappy and like they have surrended to his or her unwelcome start to life.

Well I am quite satisfied with that opinion given in your site. I think it must be implacable in real life.

Modern midwifery is a very demanding job, which is why it requires the skills and knowledge of a university graduate. The BMid midwifery degree lasts three years and gives you everything you need to begin your career as a midwife. If you are interested in studying a BMid Midwifery University Degree then look no further than The University of Southampton, Hampshire where students will acquire work experience across a range of settings, including hospitals, birth centres and the wider community.
