There is a good algorithm that you can print out on page 22. Remember that in BLS for a pregnant woman, you need a tilt to the left of 15°. This can be achieved by getting someone to put their knees under her right side. Remember that after 20/40, perimortem fetal delivery can save the mother’s life, so call for help early.

"The NASGP and the GP locum chambers that I'm in have provided invaluable assistance both before and through Covid-19 to me as a full-time GP locum. All aspects of locum work have been made easier as a result of membership and the chamber's support structure - from accessing work, to ensuring invoicing and documentation is all sorted, and access to other locums as peer support. Having a chamber manager means I feel more secure and can devote more of my energy on my clinical work."
