The MASIC Foundation's Study Day - Consent During Childbirth Post Montgomery and Risk of Obstetric Anal Sphincter Injury

When: 28th November 2019
Venue: Fitzroy Square, London W1T 6AQ
Cost: £25 students and OASI mothers/ £40 healthcare professionals

9.15am to 4.50pm on Thursday, 28 November 2019

A multidisciplinary meeting/ study day organised by the MASIC Foundation and supported by Leigh Day Solicitors and MacGregor Healthcare Ltd.

The meeting will involve a vote on the following motion: 'This house believes that implementing the judgment Montgomery-v-Lanarkshire Health Board and warning of Anal Incontinence will inevitably raise the rate of elective caesarean section'.

There will be a preliminary vote at the start followed by a final vote after the meeting all on line and reported back to attendees and the press.

The day will cover the following:

  • What is the Montgomery ruling?
  • The risks and consequences of Anal Incontinence
  • How much do we inform mothers beforehand without scaring?
  • Does consent mean anything when you are exhausted and in pain?
  • Informing about potential emergency situations before they happen

This is an open meeting. The public are very welcome. There will be members of the medical profession present as well as people from women’s health organisations and support groups. There will be a chance to ask questions and comment. The meeting will be held in the MG room, where refreshments will be served. Speakers have been asked to tailor their talks for lay people.
