The first is the Apgar, which the midwife will do at one minute, then again at five minutes, after birth.

All new doctors and neonatal nurse practitioners to the Trust will receive training on the newborn physical examination during their local induction period. Newborn examinations by midwives All midwives must provide evidence of passing a recognised educational module for ‘Examination of the Newborn’ prior to examining newborns. If midwife examiners have trained outside of the UK then they must be deemed competent following a practical assessment by a Trust Consultant Neonatologist.

Liam is a one year old little boy who was born with a very rare neurotube defect known as Dandy Walker Syndrome, and this is his story. When Liam’s mother was 20 weeks pregnant she was scheduled to find out the sex of her baby.

The placenta begins to form enabling the developing zygote to attach itself to the mother’s uterine wall. At this stage, oxygen and nutrients from the mother’s bloodstream is passed to the zygote, the wastes from the developing zygote pass into the mother’s bloodstream for elimination. In some few cases, when the fertilized ovum attaches itself outside the uterus, the mother suffers from what is known as ectopic pregnancy. This condition is very delicate and should be treated as a medical emergency since it can cause death. Embryonic stage This second stage starts from two weeks to two months.
