Did you know that the rate of labor induction has drastically increased over the last 30 years? In this Evidence Based Birth® seminar, packed with facts, you will learn the evidence on 39-week induction and for induction at or past the “due date”. We cover the recent ARRIVE study in depth and we’ll also cover a bit about “advanced maternal age,” and discuss the actual numbers of increase in stillbirth with older age.

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!
- Describe evidence on two best practices for newborns in the golden hour: Skin-to-skin and delayed cord clamping
- Discuss evidence on procedures that often take precedence over skin-to-skin and bonding, including suction, hatting, bathing, Vitamin K, and eye ointment
