WELCOME TO THE

GESTATIONAL TROPHOBLASTIC DISEASEcourse

Taught by the world-renowned midwife & mentor Augustine Colebrook

Gestational trophoblastic disease occurs in about 1 in 1000 pregnancies

The placenta. That wonderful, temporary organ that provides everything our babies need while they gestate in the comfort of our uterus for 10 lunar months. But what happens when there is abnormal trophoblastic proliferation as the placenta is developing?
 
Gestational trophoblastic disease (molar pregnancy) occurs in about 1 in 1000 pregnancies. GTD is a fascinating disease that encompasses several disease processes that originate in the placenta. 
 
Drawing on her personal experience working in developing countries, Kristine will cover the evidence-based research as well as share personal experiences, photos and ultrasound images of advanced molar pregnancy in the field. 
 
By the end of this 2-hour course, you will be able to describe the characteristics of molar pregnancy, list the signs and symptoms, differential diagnoses and explain the standard treatment. 

The course is 2.5 hours and offers 0.25 CEUs

IS IT worthIT?

If it’s not documented, it didn’t happen…

Midwives need to consider… was something missed at the last birth they attended? Is their chart complete? Are they worried about a review? Can they go back and fix it? What if they get summoned? What if there is a complication and they didn’t chart their actions to defend themselves? Are they ready?

Every midwife who practices in the US needs this course. New midwives need this course. Senior midwives who have never had someone teach them charting need this course. Any midwife scared of a bad outcome needs this course.

The goal of this course is to keep more midwives out of the courtroom, out of coroner inquests, out of jail, prevent them from being sued – AND to help preserve safety AND protect this incredible profession.

So much can be avoided if midwives understand how they would be judged if they knew how to give truly informed decision making and if they knew how to document their actions.

This course is online, self-paced, and has lifetime access. Videos to watch, content to read, worksheets to download, example charts to study.

Midwives, don’t wait! This course teaches midwives to learn how to protect themselves!
