Presentation: Psychological Birth Trauma: What do we need to learn?

Presenter:  Sarah Redfearn, Registered Midwife (RM)



By providing primary care obstetrics providers a forum for knowledge transference, discussion and critical appraisal, at the end of the Primary Care Obstetrics Grand Rounds program participants will:


  1. Apply pertinent and relevant clinical practice knowledge and guidelines for primary care obstetrics practitioners including a forum for discussion and critical appraisal;
  2. Employ obstetrics research in order to promote best practice in primary care obstetrics; and
  3. Apply new policies and review existing policies from the national to the institutional level that impact the clinical practice of primary care obstetrics.


At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to


  1. Determine if there is an effect, either positive or negative, of information provided by healthcare providers prenatally or during the birthing experience;
  2. Examine if the education and information provided to patients vary between obstetrical providers, including obstetricians, family physicians and registered midwives.
  3. Based on the patient experience, assess what we as healthcare providers can do to support them, help to best prepare them, and ideally reduce traumatic birth experiences.
