About this Video

The birth of a child is one of the most anticipated and emotional events most people will ever experience. That day becomes a birthday that is celebrated every year for the rest of the child’s life. And while things usually go well, when they go badly, the effects can last a lifetime or even cut a life short. So how do we prepare providers to be ready and make sure that every birthday is as safe as possible? It turns out that lectures are not enough, but getting hands-on experience with birthing simulators can improve outcomes for mothers and babies and save lives across the world!

Colonel Shad Deering is a high risk pregnancy doctor and Chair of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Uniformed Services University. He has delivered babies in 10 different states and a combat zone, been awarded the Bronze Star Medal, and created an obstetric emergency simulation program now in place throughout the world that focuses on saving mothers and babies.
