This webinar explores the midwife’s role in caring for women who have survived sexual abuse. Kathryn Gutteridge is the Consultant Midwife and clinical lead for normality at Birmingham and Sandwell NHS Trust, and a qualified psychotherapist, and she has many years expertise in this specific area. There are increasingly more pregnant women who have been trafficked and these women may have been raped and subjected to violence. This will have an impact on how they experience labour. Women who are survivors of child sexual abuse may be difficult to identify, and midwives do not routinely receive training in providing care for this group of vulnerable women, and Kathryn provides insights in to what may be triggers for these women in labour and how midwives can better support them.
