Gail’s widely appreciated instructional video for midwives, Resolving Shoulder Dystocia, is approved for 2 MEAC CEUs.

RSD Cover front for adPurchase your Continuing Education Option below.

Resolving Shoulder Dystocia offers practical and immediate solutions for this life-threatening childbirth emergency. Step-by-step, recognize and resolve five types of shoulder dystocia by matching the best from midwifery traditions and modern obstetrics. Learn how the shoulders are stuck and which technique is the right one to free the baby gently and quickly. By far, the most precise explanation you will find on shoulder dystocia.

Gaskin’s, Running Start, rotation, and bringing out a posterior arm are here, along in Gail’s FlipFLOP memory tool. See her potentially preventative “Pelvic Thrust.” Understand when McRoberts’ will work — and when it won’t. Reduce panic when you match the technique. Midwives share stories of how FlipFLOP saved babies without injury and bad outcomes.

Practice along with your own doll and pelvis to gain confidence.
