This workshop includes presentations by world-renowned clinicians and scientists. It will enhance your understanding of normal birth and its common complications:

  • Preterm birth and preterm premature rupture of the membranes (PPROM)
  • Respiratory and circulatory transition at birth
  • Timing of cord clamping & initiation of respiratory support

There will also be opportunities to bring case-studies for further discussion.

We are also offering the following optional hands-on activities (with very limited places):
