Are you involved in care following childbirth, and interested in developing your sexual and reproductive healthcare knowledge and skills? Then our Essential Contraception following Childbirth course is for you. This course has been accredited by the Royal College of Midwives.

This course is aimed specifically for healthcare professionals who provide care following childbirth. It provides an interactive day with scenario based learning, presentations, time for discussion, questions and role play.

It is relevant for all practitioners working with patients following birth, who need an introduction to Contraception and provides a useful update for more experienced staff. This course benefits from being delivered in multi-disciplinary groups, where practitioners can learn from one another. It is delivered in a variety of locations across the UK, as well as online. Essential Contraception following Childbirth is not a competency based course and it is not assessed.

At the end of the course, you will be able to:

  • Describe the currently available contraceptive methods
  • Discuss the main advantages and disadvantages of these contraceptive methods
  • Identify contraindications to contraceptive methods by using the UKMEC
  • Understand when contraception can be started after pregnancy
  • Introduce contraception into consultations with pregnant and recently delivered women
  • Understand the use of “Bridging Contraception”

Who is this course for?
All learners who work in a relevant setting are welcome to take the course, including Doctors, Midwives, Health Visitors, and other Allied Health Professionals.

This half day course will be run by Specialist Sexual Health Staff from Worcestershire Integrated Sexual Health Service as well as GP Colleagues with a Special Interest in Sexual Health.
