The Participating Obstetric Department

The project is being carried out in the Department of Obstetrics, Holbæk Hospital, Holbæk, Denmark.

All the Department`s midwives are involved in the project and are actively cooperating to collect the data as correctly as possible. The midwives have been given access to Gyn Zones I-Learning which provides professional knowledge for the diagnosing and repair of tears occurring during birth. The midwives have also taken part in consecutive workshops in order gain practice in the two methods used in the project for assisting the birth of the baby`s shoulders.
