How the new ACOG Clinical Management Guidelines will affect Childbirth Educators and Doulas: New Ideas to Teach and Learn Wednesday, May 14, 2014 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM PST Cost: $0
In March, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine issued a joint Obstetric Care Consensus statement titled Safe Prevention of the Primary Cesarean Delivery. Described by birth advocates as an extraordinary “game changer” for birthing families and the people who care for them, join us to learn about:

1. Essential components of the ACOG Guidelines.

2. Impact of new guidelines on diagnoses of “failure to progress;” fetal intolerance of labor; indications for induction of labor; etc.

3. New-old clinical management skills that doctors and midwives will need to master in order to follow the new guidelines.

4. Effect on childbirth education and doula care: new ideas to teach and learn.

5. Impact on childbearing women who have been taught to fear long labors, big babies, instrumental deliveries and fetal distress.
