ESTIMATING BLOOD LOSS

a metro midwifery skills workshop

Seasoned midwives and students alike will enjoy this 4-hour workshop where we will discuss risks and treatment for postpartum hemorrhage, as well as gain hands-on experience in estimating blood loss–both in the water and out!

This class is only offered from May-September as it is an outdoor workshop.

Classes are arranged based on interest. Three people must be registered in order to schedule a class.

Workshop is 4 hours long. Class size is severely limited due to COVID. Participants will be expected to wear a mask during the workshop.

Four MEAC continuing education contact hours available.

DORA requires a MEAC approved IV course within 6 months of application for the IV authority. Certificate and DORA form will be provided at class completion. The applicant is responsible for applying for the state authority.

Course is taught by Gina Gerboth, MSM, MPH, RM, CPM, IBCLC.

Fee: $100

Cancelation policy: Because class size is severely limited, refunds are not provided within 2 weeks of workshop dates. However, if you must cancel, you will be allowed to enroll in the next course as space permits (timing and scheduling not guaranteed).

*Due to COVID, all of our workshops have undergone serious modifications. Pharmacology may be taught virtually (synchronous instruction on Zoom). For in-person workshops, class size is severely limited and masks will be required. Due to the smaller class sizes, cost has increased in order to secure a back-up midwife. In addition to these workshops, student workshops (for these and other topics) can be arranged as desired. Student workshops will have the same COVID restrictions, but costs will be lower. However, they may be cancelled in the event of a birth.
