The Midwives' Cauldron
An interview with Dr Sara Wickham
Show Notes

On this episode we talk to Dr Sara Wickham, a midwife, best-selling author, speaker and researcher. Sara is the Director of the Birth Information Project. She divides her time between speaking, writing, facilitating online courses, creating resources, and undertaking consultancy services for midwifery and health-related organisations around the world. 

Today we are discussing all things Anti D. 

We delve into the founding history of Anti d – who discovered it, how it's made, what monkeys have got to do with Anti-D, the limitations in the research, and where we are at in current maternity practice. It's a jam-packed show!

Plus Rachel and Sara discuss their, let's say unusual, hobby of being guideline detectives! 

Sara's passion is "Getting good information out so women and families know what the evidence is and know what they want to do." 

This episode is both wonderfully informative and full of discoveries you've probably never heard before and of course some laughter along the way!
