The Ball Assisted Latent Labour (BALL) trial has just recruited their 200th participant. The pragmatic randomised controlled trial is the highest recruiting trial in the Wessex Clinical Research Network for reproductive health. Clinical Doctorate midwife Dominique Mylod is researching whether using a birth ball at home in latent labour reduces pain perception. Dominique recently welcomed BU final year student midwife Alice Lovell to the island for a week’s research elective. The photo shows them sampling island life!
Congratulations to both on achieving such fantastic recruitment!
