    Wonderful course! Should be required for all midwifery schools and certifications, OB training, L&D orientations for RNs and doula certifications! I knew of and have used some of the basic techniques for years, but still learned plenty!

    Excellent! As a midwifery student I feel much more prepared. This course has helped me to understand the many types of shoulder dystocias and how to resolve them calmly.

  4. Heather Carrion

    This course was excellent! I’ve been practicing as a CNM for 10 years and have encountered several shoulder dystocias in that time, all thankfully resolved with good outcomes (even the 4-5 minute shoulders!), but those experiences made it really easy for me to know what was happening in each scenario described in this course and I feel confident in applying the new skills I have now learned. I’m also confident that, had I known some of these other techniques, some of those shoulders could have been resolved more quickly, but now I know and can move forward with improved technique. I agree with the review above that this should be required continuing education for any/all OB providers.

    This is a wonderful and comprehensive online course. It has lots of incredible information.
    I really like the in-depth discussions of the different types of possible dystocia. The pictures and demos help a lot.
    Highly recommend.

    You have to do it! I am an Italian midwife but you can understand English very well without difficulty. She talks about some points that we often ignore or just don’t think. She is very clear during explaining all the concepts. And you can rewind whenever you want. Thank you very much. I hope that you will organize more courses like this!

    I just finished the course successfully. The course is very understandable also for foreigners. I am German and could understand it without problems. I can recommend the course for doctors, midwives, doulas and even interested mothers. We all should have knowledge of birth and how complications can be safely handled. I hope you organize more courses like that.

    This is by far the best shoulder dystocia course I have taken. It gave me clarity.
