June 1st – 5th saw the picturesque city of Prague, Czech Republic host the International Conference of Midwives. This 30th Triennial Congress brought together more than 3000 Midwives from across the world with the target message of improving woman’s health globally.
A poster was presented by Maeve O’Connell, St. Thomas Hospital, Kings College London, Nursing and Midwifery, UK titled “Midwives experience of the use of carbon monoxide testing for smoking cessation in pregnancy”
The detrimental effects of smoking in pregnancy for mother and child have
been well documented. The reduction of smoking in pregnancy is therefore a key target for Midwives worldwide.
We were happy to support Maeve in her presentation where the CO Check Baby was an integral part on the day.
