Presenters
Molly McMillion, RN, IBCLC, LCCE and Shauna Lively, EdD, RN LCCE will lead this one-day event. Their expertise and guidance will boost your confidence while helping develop the skills needed to become a nurturing labor support care provider.

Good labor support, including mothers with epidurals, will reduce CS rates, according to the California Maternal Quality Care Collaborative. ACOG’s recently published paper also suggests fewer interventions for the best outcomes.

Who Should Attend
This workshop has been designed specifically to meet the professional needs and goals of labor nurses, nurse practitioners, nurse managers, midwives, staff nurses and other care providers for women.

What You Will Learn
Upon completion, you will be able to:

  • Analyze the nurses impact on maternal and neonatal outcomes and on maternal birth satisfaction
  • List components of a safe and supportive birth environment
  • Evaluate intrapartum practices according to standards of evidence-based care
  • Provide a variety of non-pharmacologic labor support techniques
  • Utilize methods associated with decreased need for medical intervention and lower cesarean rates
  • Identify strategies to overcome barriers to change
