Due Date (with Advanced Maternal Age)
Did you know that the number one reason for induction in most countries is going past your due date? In this Evidence Based Birth® seminar, packed with facts, you will learn the evidence on induction for reaching the due date and for going past 41-42 weeks. We'll also cover a bit about "advanced maternal age," and discuss the actual numbers of increase in stillbirth with older age. Case studies and discussion questions make this a lively seminar that leaves everyone buzzing with excitement.
Newborn Procedures in the Golden Hour
What is the evident on the safety of Vitamin K? Does delayed cord clamping lead to jaundice? How can we help families who give birth by cesarean get skin-to-skin in our local operating rooms? In this interactive seminar, we will take an in-depth look at the research evidence on newborn procedures for term infants during the "golden hour." We will cover the history and research on interventions that happen during the first hour of life — including which procedures are the "best practices," and which procedures can be safely delayed or declined. After this seminar, you will walk away with confidence in your ability to talk with clients about the latest evidence on skin-to-skin, delayed cord clamping, bathing, weighing, hatting, Vitamin K, and eye ointment.
Normalizing Home Birth Transfers
Designed for home birth and hospital providers, this workshop will challenge you and your colleagues to address your fears and concerns about transfers from planned home births into the hospital. What guielines can hospital staff follow when accepting a home birth transfer? What can home birth providers do to ease the transfer? What are the basic safety statistics of home birth and freestanding birth centers, and what is needed to make home birth even safer?
