Induction of labour from the baby's perspective

August 16, 2020 Katie James and Dr Rachel Reed Season 1 Episode 4
The Midwives' Cauldron
Induction of labour from the baby's perspective
Show Notes

Join us as we delve deeper into induction of labour through the early postnatal lens. We discuss the impact of induction on the baby, and on the mother's lactation, looking at ways to ensure all mothers and infants get off to the best start, despite the labour and birth they may have had. Somehow this episode ends up wandering into the world of Wizard of Oz. We also learn new and, personally I think, much better words for amniotic fluid and the placenta. And we find out about the delights of Rachel's cat. Listen in for great insights and laughs along the way.
