Miserable Baby Part 2   


The Miserable Baby PART TWO
Shock, trauma, birth interventions and First Breath Syndrome in the newborn & baby


This workshop explores, in depth, the possible structural effects of birth interventions – forceps, vacuum extraction and caesarian section, on the newborn, and its behaviour during the first few months. We also introduce the concepts of sympathetic and parasympathetic ‘Shock’ & ‘First Breath Syndrome’ in the newborn.

As with all our courses, emphasis is on treatment, practical management and advice rather than in depth anatomy & physiology which participants can study at their leisure. 

[box]Topics covered:[/box]

  • First Breath Syndrome & autonomic Shock in the newborn.
  • Effects of traumatic birth eg. forceps, vacuum extraction, caesarian section & management approaches.
  • Exploration of the use of CV4 and EV4 stillpoint techniques in babies & infants.

Please wear loose and comfortable clothing. Full notes will be supplied during the lecture.
A 6.5 hour CPD certificate will be available at the end of the day.

[box]This in an Intermediate Level workshop. To get the most out of this course you should:[/box]

  • Be able to take a Paediatric case history and understand your legal & professional requirements for treating infants.
  • Understand the basic physiological processes of birth and how this may effect cranial mechanics.
  • Have a basic understanding of the Cranio-sacral approach (Sutherland, Upledger etc.) as some techniques require palpation of the Involuntary Mechanism.
