Obstetrics & Gynaecology seminar: Talking to pregnant women about stillbirth Event as iCalendar

15 November 2013

3:30 - 4:30pm

Venue: Seminar Room 505-003, Building 505, 85 Park Road, Grafton

This presentation will suggest one possible way of sensitively raising and discussing the possibility of stillbirth with pregnant women.  In particular the suggestion will be made that if maternity care providers raise the topic of stillbirth as important and also give information to women about what they can actively do to minimise their risk of stillbirth, then this information will empower and enable women to keep their baby safe.

Presented by: Dr Jane Warland

Dr Jane Warland is a registered midwife and senior lecturer in the School of Nursing and Midwifery at the University of South Australia.  Since suffering the unexplained full term stillbirth of her daughter Emma in 1993 she has been a passionate researcher into preventative and modifiable risk factors for stillbirth.
