Would you be prepared for an emergency birth situation whether post-disaster, en-route to the hospital or even at home? Would you be prepared to help your community in an emergency?
Join Katia LeMone, a licensed, herbal midwife with experience in over 600 births – many in completely remote, 4th world environments around the world – as she steps you through the processes involved in having a safe, healthy birth no matter what the situation around you might be.
This course will give you the basics of what to do, and often more importantly, what not to do during an emergency birth. The care of pregnant, birthing and postpartum women is covered, including common problems and emergencies during the childbearing year. Emergency birth skills are outlined and discussed. Whether you are enhancing your own practical, emergency or medical knowledge or you simply want to be more prepared for a birth and simply want to be able to help yourself, family, friends or anyone in a post-disaster situation, this 4-week online course is an amazing introduction to the skills and information you need.
The course is also specifically designed to prepare participants as Emergency Birth Workers who can assist during a disaster or austere situation. The class culminates with a project designing a prenatal clinic during a disaster scenario.
