Webinar: Vaccination for Pregnant Women and the Health Professionals caring for them

Information for women and the obstetric community about the risks and benefits of COVID-19 vaccination during pregnancy

As the COVID-19 vaccine rollout takes place this is an opportunity to learn and ask questions about vaccination from international expert Prof Paul T. Heath and understand how it relates to women wanting to get pregnant, already pregnant or breastfeeding. 

We will share experiences of vaccination amongst women’s health professionals with Dr Gloria Rowland MBE including low vaccine uptake in certain groups and the range of beliefs from health professionals. Dr Rehan Khan will explore health inequalities in access to the vaccine and share what resources are currently available to help the obstetric community and women themselves. 

This is an opportunity to get an evidence based perspective and a chance for you to ask questions from experts with first hand experience at an Elly Charity and the WHO Collaborating Centre for Global Women's Health at the University of Birmingham event.


Everyone welcome! Register here for our #GlobalPregCov event on 20th March 2021

The aim of this programme is to help midwives and doctors of all levels to acquire the necessary life-saving skills to help reduce maternal mortality rates.  It focuses on training staff who work together in the maternity environment to improve communication and teamwork which can have a huge impact on the delivery of safe obstetric care. The current Malaysian Maternal Mortality Ratio is currently 27 per 100,000 maternities compared to the UK where the ratio is 8 per 100,000 maternities.  This is a figure the Malaysian government is trying to reduce dramatically and working together with the Elly charity we hope to have an impact.  

The training involved a 2 day MOMs (Multidisciplinary Obstetric and Midwifery Simulation) Course taught in Miri and Lawas which was attended by up to 65 candidates.  The delivery of course involves several teaching styles from small group work, lectures, skill stations to simulations.   To ensure the MOMs course is sustainable candidates from the course were selected to attend the Train the Trainer programme.  This focused on the candidates developing teaching skills so they are able to pass on their knowledge and teach on local MOMs courses to other doctors and midwives in the Sarawak region.

The feedback was overwhelmingly positive.   The enthusiasm demonstrated by the candidates was inspiring and their eagerness to improve and learn was motivational.  Many of the candidates had not attended an update in obstetric emergencies in many years and they really appreciated the structured approach with an emphasis on communication and teamwork to help improve their work environment and maternal outcomes.  They found it helped them develop confidence in dealing with emergencies and appreciating the skills of all the different titles in the team.
