Imagine a hospital auditorium or conference room full of nurses, midwives, doulas, childbirth educators, lactation consultants, and physicians…buzzing about what the term evidence based care actually means, and how they can overcome barriers to implementing evidence based care.
Talking openly (with a skilled facilitator) about the top-down power hierarchy, about horizontal violence, about healing, and about how we can come together to create change. (0.15 ACNM CEUs, #2017/088)

Seminar #2 - Due Dates and AMA
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.
Evidence Based Birth® is a continuing education provider for the Kentucky Board of Nursing # 7-
0081. Nursing contact hours can be applied to most childbirth educator and doula certifications as well as the Certified Professional Midwife credential. We have also applied for 0.15 CEUs from the American College of Nurse Midwives and 1.5 prescribed credits from the American Academy of Family Physicians.
