The mechanisms, simplified

January 2015 – See below for videos explaining the mechanisms of breech birth in different maternal positionsdemonstrating

Yesterday, I was in snowy Salford – up north! Senior Lecturer and LME Elaine Uppal invited me with two goals: 1) to make sure her students thoroughly understood the mechanisms of breech birth in preparation for their vivas next week, and 2) to raise money for student electives abroad, particularly in Cambodia, where Elaine has a long-standing relationship with a midwifery twinning project.

After the study day, the students and I made two basic videos to assist their revision.

 

Good luck with your exams, student midwives!
