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.
- Review this information with words and pictures: the mechanisms.
- Review some manoeuvres specific to upright breech: download How and When to Help.
Good luck with your exams, student midwives!
