Question #8: Spotters should always be available and nearby during prop posing and hand held newborn imagery.
Correct
Your Answer:  True
Question #9: When creating composite images, it's ok for a spotter to use one finger to keep baby balanced.
Correct
Your Answer:  
  • False
All Possible Answers:
  • True
  • False
Explanation:  Using one finger to balance the baby still leaves the baby at risk for other things such as positional asphyxiation and decreased lung capacity. While some may think this is safe, it is not the SAFEST practice.
Question #10: Select the best answer:
Correct
Your Answer:  
  • It is never safe to balance a baby in a pose.
All Possible Answers:
  • Balancing babies is totally safe because I learned a great technique from another prominent photographer.
  • It's ok to balance a baby in a pose as long as a parent or spotter is right there ready to catch the baby if they tip or fall.
  • The best way to manage a froggy pose is to shoot so close that I can hold the baby and create the composite while I'm taking the photo.
  • It is never safe to balance a baby in a pose.
Explanation:  While many photographers in the industry still think balancing babies is safe enough, there is growing evidence to the contrary. Catching a baby who is off balance can cause strains and potential injury to their soft tissues which can lead to further problems with nursing and asymmetric motor development. A balanced baby is at risk for positional asphyxiation and other developmental complications can result due to decreased oxygen to the brain. Managing the composite by yourself while taking the image is simply multitasking, which statistically compromises performance when surprises happen and can lead to accidental falls. With growing information about the risks, it is always best to opt for SAFEST practices.
Question #11: Select the most appropriate answer to the following questions, as per Stephanie Robin's discussion in the video:
Correct
Your Answer:  
  • All of the above.
All Possible Answers:
  • In the froggy pose, the baby's head is too heavy for his/her hands because the bones are not yet fully formed, and are still collagen. This can result in undue strain on the joints and ligaments under pressure.
  • Letting the weight of baby's head rest on the hands under the chin, puts pressure up into the throat and narrows the breathing airway. This can decrease oxygen flow and puts baby at risk of positional asphyxiation.
  • The best way to support baby's head in the froggy and potato pose is to place your fingers on the bony structures of the face (the jaw and cheekbone) and to support the weight of the head off of the hands.
  • All of the above.
  • None of the above.
  • Just two of the above.
Explanation:  All of the above are true.
Question #12: If you notice that baby's lips, tongue, mouth area, or chest is turning purple or blue, what does this mean and what should you do?
Correct
Your Answer:  
  • This type of discolouration indicates central cyanosis, which is a lack of oxygen. Take the baby out of the pose immediately, and recommend mom to seek medical attention. (Baby needs to be checked to see if further help is needed, and additionally, you never know if there is an underlying issue that needs medical attention!)
All Possible Answers:
  • It's normal, baby's colouring is always off, and you just edit out the purple.
  • This type of discolouration indicates central cyanosis, which is a lack of oxygen. Take the baby out of the pose immediately, and recommend mom to seek medical attention. (Baby needs to be checked to see if further help is needed, and additionally, you never know if there is an underlying issue that needs medical attention!)
  • Take the baby out of the pose, but no need to alarm Mom.
Explanation:  Lack of oxygen in a newborn is dangerous, and can cause cell death in the brain cells. The implications of lack of oxygen are not always immediately obvious, but should be taken seriously.
Question #13: True or False: Physical injury, strains, and long term complications due to lack of oxygen are not necessarily evident at the time of the session.
Correct
Your Answer:  True
Explanation:  Strains to the neck can cause tortilcollis, which may not be diagnosed for another few months, and can in turn lead to plagiocephaly. Lack of oxygen to the brain can cause cerebral palsy, developmental delays, and learning difficulties, etc.
