Hypertension and its pregnancy-related disorders are a leading cause of preterm birth, fetal growth restriction and a multitude of emergencies. Despite modern advancements in maternity care globally, hypertensive disorders of pregnancy remain at the root of appalling morbidity and mortality statistics. Birth Emergency Skills Training® and GOLD Learning have partnered to present an in-depth examination of these often insidious, yet potentially lethal conditions. It is imperative that all community centered birth workers learn to recognize and respond to these disorders as they develop. Based on the latest research about risks, clinical manifestations, long-term health implications, and effects of COVID-19 on pregnancy, this program includes best practice guidelines and client centered educational resources. Join us and discover how you can play a role in the blueprint addressing this ongoing health crisis.
