    Troops hunting for Saddam's weapons of mass destruction have searched 87 "prime" sites in Iraq and uncovered a training facility for Iraq's Olympic swimming and diving teams. One suspected underground chemical weapons stash at the Malab Ashab Chemical Co. was opened up, said sources, and a swimming pool exposed.

      Midwifery advice
    Printer friendly page |
    Posted by: Admin  Friday, 13 January, 2006  03:32 PM
    New Parents across Gloucestershire areare being given a free booklet by midwives containing water safety, basic life support and choking advice. The Swimming Teachers Association (STA) has produced the document and is now distributing it to all post-natal health workers.

    Roger Millward, chief executive of the STA, said: "Drowning is the third largest cause of death among children in the UK, and at the STA we have always been vocal about our desire to educate parents about water safety. Only if parents are aware of the dangers can they avoid them, and if this leaflet prevents even one death then it will have been well worth it!"

    Whilst I believe that this is a worthy initiative, I do not believe that it qualifies as midwifery advice. Surely the heading would attract more attention if it was something like "advice to youngs mothers" or "STA inititive targets new mothers"

    On a semantic point, midwives are only involved with a young mother during pregnacy and up to 10 days after birth, so really if the STA is targetting all "post-natal workers" it hardly affects midwives at all.
