When Neonatal Resuscitation Isn't Enough

We will enter the painful world of neonatal resuscitations that don't result in a healthy/live baby regardless of how well they are done.... and how easy it is for birth and midwives to be blamed if we aren't willing to look deeper. We'll take a look at how the system breakdowns in the neonatal emergency transfer system have affected outcomes, and, using the Home Birth Summit Transfer Guidelines as a point of reference, we'll brainstorm on how each of us can approach this and other breakdowns more collaboratively. Last, but certainly not least, we'll talk about how we, as midwives, are affected by grief and trauma and learn ways to help ourselves process it in a balanced way.
