Lab Work For the Midwife with Gail Hart
Join research expert and midwife Gail Hart as she takes us through her 90 minute online presentation about lab work for midwives. She will give a thorough review and explanation about blood tests that can be ordered, and detail interpretation about what varied results might mean.
From Gail about this class:
“Everybody is a book of blood; wherever we’re opened, we’re red.” Clive Barker
NOW THAT I HAVE YOUR ATTENTION with a quote from the scary Mr Barker, it is a fact that blood truly can be used to read people like a book – and can be a guidebook to help women navigate through pregnancy. A few drops of blood can reveal hidden conditions, confirm the health of a pregnancy, provide essential information about nutrition, and alert us to the development of dangers in time to avoid them. Labwork is essential to evaluate a pregnancy (or health in general), but it can provide much more information than most of us realize. For example, there is so much more to anemia than the hematocrit and hemoglobin, and anemia itself is probably the most misunderstood condition in midwifery/obstetrics. And bloodwork can provide those first subtle clues of pre-eclmapsia if we are aware of them and modify our test schedules so we can catch them at the proper time.
Come take a look at Labwork For Midwives, whether you are an experienced midwife, a new student or anyone involved in Pregnancy and Birth. This class can provide useful information for all Birth Workers to help our clients, our families or even ourselves discover what blood can tell us about our bodies.”
