Delivering Quality Maternity Care During COVID-19

Training solutions to prepare your teams

COVID-19 infection in Pregnancy

During the COVID-19 pandemic, healthcare resources are stretched in every direction. Outside of critical care departments, the need for quality healthcare still persists. Mothers have not stopped giving birth, and Maternity Teams continue to support them.​

As local infection control protocols change in line with the pandemic, healthcare institutions can use simulation to prepare staff for their new normal. As RCOG states, simulation exercises can build staff confidence and identify areas of concern in emergency management of COVID-19 patients during labor and delivery.  Using standardized patients together with a birthing simulator such as MamaBirthie can help prepare for decision-making and communication around difficult situations such as separating mother and baby.
