Event description

Description

We are excited to announce another PBB Talks event, this time with Bethan Townsend who will present her research findings on women's experiences of water immersion for labour and birth for their VBACs (Vaginal Birth after Caesarean).

Bethan Townsend is the Clinical Midwife Consultant at Gold Coast University Hospital and a PhD student. She has practised midwifery in the UK, Abu Dhabi, and Queensland. Currently Bethan is working in the Midwifery group Practice and with the Midwifery Navigator team, assisting women with complex physical and social needs. Through her experiences with pregnant and birthing women, Bethan has developed a key interest in seeing the provision of continuity of care for all women, including supporting water immersion for labour and birth for women who have had previous c/sections.

Waterbirth is not used in conventional obstetric practice for women seeking VBACs (Vaginal Birth After Caesarean), yet in practice Bethan has found it increases women's chances of achieving a VBAC. These positive outcomes have prompted Bethan to commence her PhD, and Bethan will be presenting her preliminary findings at this PBB Talk on 10 November at GCUH.
