PROMPT (PRactical Obstetric Multi-Professional Training) is an evidence based multi-professional training package for obstetric emergencies. It is associated with direct improvements in perinatal outcome and has been proven to improve knowledge, clinical skills and team working.

The PROMPT Maternity Foundation (PMF) is a multi-professional group of obstetricians, midwives and anaesthetists based in the UK. PMF strives to make childbirth safer through training, education and research. Our aim has always been to make evidence based multi-professional obstetric emergencies training available to all.

Skydiving for the PROMPT Maternity Foundation

We are honoured to be the chosen charity for Lee Roulton's skydive in recognition of the PROMPT Training used by the midwife delivering Lee and Hannah's baby boy Spencer. If you wish to support Lee's skydive which is taking place on 18th November please visit Lee's fundraising page

"Our son Spencer was born with shoulder dystocia, which meant his shoulder got stuck on Hannah's pubic bone during delivery after the head was delivered.  The cord was wrapped so tightly around his neck the midwives were unable to cut it. No amount of pushing or contractions would have brought him into the world. It was a huge 11 minutes between his head and his body being delivered and Spencer didn't take his first breath until 4 minutes after being born, these minutes were the longest of our lives.It truly was the most traumatic and heart breaking time.  The Midwife that evening knew exactly what manouvres to do to help him out. We are all so thankful for everything they did that evening so I am doing a skydive to raise money for PROMPT, who provide the training to midwives and other professionals to make the delivery of babies the safest it can be. That way we can provide more training to assist further Shoulder Dystocia births".

Thankfully Spencer was absolutely fine after his checks and is doing amazingly now-a whole 15lbs at 11 weeks amazing.
