Dr Gloria Esegbona, OBGYN, Midwife and Winston Churchill Fellow 2015
Kings College Learning Institute
Dr Gloria Esegbona is a strategic clinician, academic and educator skilled in high risk intrapartum care and with specialist experience in prevention and management of a wide range of obstetric trauma, including the obstetric fistula.
She believes there is a need to address the abstract way in which the obstetric tract (OBSTRACT) is perceived and considered in maternity clinical practice, as this is leading to rising intervention in childbirth and an increasing awareness that mothers suffer from a lot more physical trauma to the obstetric tract than just perineal tears. This is the goal of the Art of childbirth and OBSTRACT training programmes which promote better understanding of anatomy and physiology and woman-centred physiological practices.
