Improve your care as a professional in emergencies that may occur in and out-of-hospital delivery.

Training and re training in obstetric emergencies is an essential part of our professional practice to ensure we delivery safe and quality care.

We have chosen the British model in which annual and compulsory training is done on a multidisciplinary (Drills and Skills).


Midwives, obstetricians, residents, civil protection personnel and other health professionals with special interest in the emergency and out-of-hospital delivery.


Provide participants with practical skills needed to improve their response to emergencies in out-of-hospital delivery and neonatal resuscitation.


Participants gain experience assisting obstetric emergencies and neonatal resuscitation in out-of-hospital settings. Scenarios will be for deliveries at home, whether planned or unplanned.


  • Postpartum haemorrhage and maternal collapse
  • Neonatal resuscitation
  • Cord prolapse
  • Shoulder dystocia
  • Communication when transfering to the hospital (SHIVAR).
  • Practical estimation of blood loss.
  • Care of the midwife.


This course is given in rural houses in the countryside, in a trusting environment where we can make mistakes and correct them without judgment.

The scenarios take place in seperate rooms where clinical emergency cases are simulated. Practicing in the home environment with its environmental and social challenges allows for realistic responses.

Managing childbirth emergencies in the community & low – tech settings .


I have worked as a midwife for 20 years, in the community and hospital settings, attending hundreds of women in their labor. My area of specialization is physiological childbirth, hypnoparticus and childbirth in water. I also have a great experience in complicated deliveries.

I currently work as a midwife in a midwifery unit run by midwives (NHS).

I am an expert in normal childbirth and how to maintain it. I am also an associate professor at the University of East Anglia and I run courses for childbirth and hypnoparticulation at the Complementary Health Care Clinic.

I am a member of the Association of Hypnobirthing Midwives, Nursing and Midwifery Council and Royal College of Midwives.


I have been a midwife for 17 years and have worked mainly in the hospital and in units run by midwives.

For three years I have worked as a midwife teacher specifically in the practice area.

I have always been an advocate of normal childbirth and I believe in the strength of women and their ability to deliver normally if circumstances and the environment are right.

In recent years I have been involved in international projects. I travel often to Nepal and work with my partner Trudy Brock to support midwives who work in rural areas and promote respectful women-centered care.

I have also volunteered in Kenya and Sierra Leone by training rural health professionals in obstetric emergencies. I am a mother and a grandmother. I usually visit Spain where my son, daughter-in-law and 3 children live.

*Important stastics

During 2014 (INE 2016) 1,142 were normal term deliveries attended at home by health personnel and 224 deliveries not attended by professionals.

Of the normal term births that occurred in another place that was neither the house nor the hospital 439 were attended by medical personnel and 51 did not have professional assistance.

Whether it is because the woman decides to give birth at home or because there is no time to get to the planned health center (precipitous delivery), the reality is that out-of-hospital birth emergencies occur and it is our duty to care for women and babies in the best possible way. We must therefore be prepared for any emergency that may occur.

Addressing the issue of childbirth safety is an ethical and legal responsibility.
