Prediction and prevention of adverse pregnancy outcomes - Sponsored by PerkinElmer

Wednesday, March 30, 2022 09:55 - 10:35

The aim of all of maternity care is prediction prevention of adverse pregnancy outcomes and helping birthing parents with accurate information to allow them to make choices for managing their pregnancy. This can only be ensured by an effective collaboration between doctors and midwives, who can work together to offer the best care that is possible. We are unique in the UK that birthing parents and families receive support and clinical care from both midwives and doctors rather than just one of these professionals. We are also unique in that we actually have a national strategy for prevention of stillbirths. There is however, much scope for better multidisciplinary working and better models to prevent adverse outcomes such as stillbirth. This talk on prediction and prevention of adverse outcomes discusses about common pregnancy complications that can be effectively predicted and at times prevented with modern evidence-based care through effective multidisciplinary working.
