Bump to Birth

Bump to Birth

Paediatric Workshop 1 - formerly known as 'Obstetrics'

This first weekend looks at how the field of obstetrics relates to osteopathy.

Conception and pregnancy commences an intimate relationship between the mother and child. Any influences upon these processes, may directly, or via the mother alter the child’s capacities and destiny.  Osteopaths need to understand these influences and relationships. Safe guarding and consent needs to be understood and carried out so all children in our care are protected.

It is expected that you are already treating children in your own practice. A current DBS certificate and Safeguarding of Children level 2 or above (or equivalent from the country in which you reside and practice) is required; a copy of which should be supplied to our office.

Location: Hawkwood, STROUD
Price: £549 (non-res) £599 (res)

What our students say about P1: Obstetrics

“Claudia Knox gave me the lecture I had always wanted and hoped for on pregnancy. Her outstanding knowledge on the mechanical arrangements of the different organs, the lifestyle pregnant ladies lead and the physiological adaptation in a woman’s life were incredibly valuable insights. Claudia’s delivery was impeccable and I feel I got a much clearer idea on how to assist pregnant ladies. I think what was particularly valuable about this lecturer was her experience as a midwife of witnessing so many deliveries and being able to combine this with her osteopathic knowledge and skills.”

“Excellent weekend which surpassed my expectations.”

“Meeting everyone on the course and great tutors Safeguarding children was an eye opener. Thank you for including this. Fantastic having the perspective of a midwife/osteopath.”
