Professional Study Days
Being practicing midwives we appreciate how precious time off is and that for some professionals budgets are tight.
We pride ourselves on organising study days or sessions that are affordable, informative and relevant to you.
At our face to face sessions we look after our delegates with refreshments and on full days we provide lunch.
We love the fact that our study days are attended by Midwives, Doula's, antenatal teachers, student midwives, physio's in fact any professionals that have contact with pregnant women, labouring women, new mum's and baby's. This adds to the days with brilliant discussions and question times.
UP AND COMING EVENTS
Wednesday 24th Nov 2021
Onlne via Zoom
7.30pm - 9pm
Our fourth study evening in our vulnerable women series focuses on caring for families from the travelling community.
The term ‘Gypsies and Travellers’ encompasses a range of diverse groups including English
Gypsies, Welsh Gypsies, Scottish Gypsy Travellers, and Irish Travellers (it is also generally
used to include ‘new age’ travellers and show people who work in fairs.
A proportion of the Gypsy and Traveller population live in housing and the others live in caravans (known as trailers). Most of those living in caravans live on sites – some are authorised sites and some are unauthorised sites. A minority of Gypsies and Travellers who live in trailers live on the road, stopping on the roadside or in transit sites.
As you can imagine travelling around like this can cause issues with accessing care when pregnant, issues with the authorities and for health care professionals to follow expectant and new mums up can be tricky when they move on. Along with their cultural beliefs and the genetic issues of marrying within families caring for the travelling community brings its own challenges.
On this evening we warmly welcome our speakers;
Sam Walsh: Specialist Safeguarding Midwife West Herts NHS Trust . Sam will be sharing her experiences of working with the travelling community; the challenges and rewards it brings.
Debbie Trollope: Community Midwife
Our own Debbie from PBB Midwives will be sharing her experiences as a community midwife when looking after families from the travelling community.
We share a case study of a baby born with a rare disease.
