Professional Study Days
Being practicing midwives we appreciate how precious time off is and that for some professionals budgets are tight.
We pride ourselves on organising study days or sessions that are affordable, informative and relevant to you.
At our face to face sessions we look after our delegates with refreshments and on full days we provide lunch.
We love the fact that our study days are attended by Midwives, Doula's, antenatal teachers, student midwives, physio's in fact any professionals that have contact with pregnant women, labouring women, new mum's and baby's. This adds to the days with brilliant discussions and question times.
UP AND COMING EVENTS
Thursday 22nd April 2021
Onlne via Zoom
7pm - 10pm
Our second study evening in our vulnerable women series is modern slavery and human trafficking, which is not something Emma and I know a great deal about so we felt it was an ideal opportunity to find out more.
Women from which countries are more likely to be victims?
Trafficking is a hidden crime. It can happen in our city, our street, even in the house next door, without us realising. We find that a concerning thought as we feel we are maybe a bit naïve .
How would we recognise a woman who is a victim?
What do we do if we have suspicions?
It will be an interesting evening for sure.
We welcome our speakers for the evening:
Sam Walsh: Specialist Safeguarding Midwife West Herts NHS Trust
Sam will be sharing her experiences of caring for women who are pregnant and known to have been trafficked or a victim of modern slavery.
Bonita Sparkes: Adult Safeguarding Nurse West Herts NHS Trust and RCN Nurse of the Year 2019

Our passion for education goes beyond preparing for birth, we strongly feel women should be preparing for their postpartum recovery with just as much focus as the plan for birth.
When it comes to the information you give women on their recovery and what they can do to help make the transition from pregnant to parent as smooth as possible do you give them the best advice?
To talk us through what we need to consider we welcome:
Emma Trollope: founder & Co-owner of PBB Events and passionate postnatal Midwife, will be going through the four important pillars of the postnatal period and how these really make a difference to how a women health mentally and physically.
