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.

*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.
