Description

The most complete specialization in the Main Medical Pathologies During Pregnancy: Characteristics, Diagnosis and Treatment for Midwives, from the entire educational market: a wide and complete Postgraduate Diploma, unique in its specialty"

Nowadays, more and more pregnant women suffer from diseases or ailments in the digestive system, including all those that may affect from the pregnant woman's mouth to the intestine and rectum. Autoimmune diseases, which also affect the digestive system, are becoming more and more frequent and there are few studies and little experience of their management in pregnant women. 

This Postgraduate Diploma will integrate the knowledge so that the student can manage this type of problems in pregnant women, always based on the best evidence.

Some of the pathologies of the digestive system are potentially fatal in pregnant women and fetuses, so it is extremely important that practitioners know how to prevent them as much as possible, as well as how to treat and diagnose them.  Likewise, topics as important from the obstetric point of view will be discussed, such as hepatopathies and intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy, one of the pathologies that, due to its importance and recurrence, has been the subject of study by midwives and obstetricians for decades. 

Other issues of vital importance due to their potential complications are hyperemesis gravidarum.  During the study of this Postgraduate Diploma, the student will acquire knowledge about dermatological pathology in pregnancy, the management of which is of vital importance when making a differential diagnosis. 

The most novel aspect of this module is the study of autoimmune diseases affecting pregnancy. More and more people are suffering from this type of disease, often unknown and with an uncertain prognosis. 

This Postgraduate Diploma will also study neurological pathology in pregnancy, another of the most studied topics in obstetrics due to its importance and incidence.

Other fundamental topics that we will address in this Postgraduate Diploma are seasonal flu, a very important pathology during pregnancy, due to its enormous incidence due to gestational immunosuppression, and its numerous potential complications, or bronchial asthma, one of the most frequent pathologies during pregnancy.

Another special feature of this complete Postgraduate Diploma is the approach to tropical and subtropical diseases.
