Online Webinars

Breech Birth Network and collaborators offer a variety of online seminars for healthcare professionals who facilitate vaginal breech births, or are seeking to learn these skills.

Each Webinar begins with a short 10 minute talk, video or presentation and conclude with a facilitated discussion. Webinars are free as part of the Online Course or can be joined for a small fee of £5. You can access recordings of the webinars through the online training package if you have bought access or have received the online course as part of your face-to-face training course since 2021.
