ARC Case Café (10 February 2021 – 7.30pm-8.30pm)
We are planning to run regular virtual events for healthcare professionals to discuss the more challenging aspects of antenatal screening and diagnosis. These ‘case cafés’ are a safe and informal way for professionals to share experiences and best practice and hear about the parent perspective from ARC. This session will focus on the particular challenges of providing care in the case of a multiple pregnancy. Carrying twins or higher multiples inevitably complicates the already complex process of antenatal screening and diagnosis and its potential consequences. We will discuss the particular challenges that can arise in multiple pregnancy and share our insight into what might help parents.
