e-Learning sessions support paramedics caring for mother and baby

Rachel Gowland, 7 December 2020

Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) worked with the College of Paramedics to develop ten bite-sized sessions to develop paramedics’ knowledge of childbirth, maternal emergencies and care of newborn babies.

Written and edited by paramedic-midwife, Aimee Yarrington, each session in the maternity and newborn care for paramedics’ module was designed to build confidence and competence in experienced paramedics, students and assistant practitioners when caring for mother and baby in a wide range of scenarios such as normal birth, breech birth, peripartum haemorrhage and newborn life support.

The module covers the following topics:

  • Ante-partum haemorrhage
  • Birth
  • Breech birth
  • Care of the newborn
  • Cord prolapse
  • Maternal resuscitation
  • Newborn life support
  • Post-partum haemorrhage
  • Pregnancy induced hypertension and pre-eclampsia
  • Shoulder dystocia

Each interactive session can be accessed on a variety of mobile devices and lasts approximately 20 minutes.
