Due Dates and Advanced Maternal Age (1.5 nursing and ACNM contact hours)

Did you know that the number one reason for induction is “post-dates?” 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.

Newborn Procedures in the Golden Hour (1.5 nursing and ACNM contact hours)

What is the evidence 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 the operating room? In this seminar, we will take a look at the research 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.

Home Birth Transfers (1.5 nursing and ACNM contact hours)

This workshop will challenge you to address your fears and concerns about transfers from planned home births into the hospital. What guidelines 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 what is needed to make home birth safer?
