That’s a wrap!

Watch Dr Victoria Kain and Dr Elizabeth Forster as they conclude Week 1 of the 'Assessment of the Newborn' course in FutureLearn.

Thanks for joining us this week.

We trust you’ve enjoyed learning about newborn assessment and are feeling more confident about approaching the baby’s first physical examination.

If you are a parent or parent-to-be, we hope you are feeling more comfortable about the examination process your baby has gone through or will go through in the future. We also trust we have demystified some of the terminology along the way.

Thanks for your questions and contributions this week. We look forward to seeing you again in Week 2.
