Healthcare practitioners such as midwives need to categorise optimum cord clamping as their "default position" and not as an alternative. They need to become fully conversant with the current evidence which supports it. There are many salient benefits for the new-born and its future infant development. Improved oxygenation leads to better brain function and there is evidence to suggest fewer new-born's require NNU admission. HB is increased at 2 hours, 24 and 48 hours and there is reportedly less iron deficiency at 3 - 5 months of age. There could arguably be a sound financial benefit for the NHS.
Midwives attending this event will receive certification for their PDP and re-validation requirements (NMC2017) and be able to have their questions answered for professionally renowned speakers.
