Induction and Intervention in Labor

Oct 21 2023 10:00 am to 12:00 pm

At the completion of this class, expectant parents will be able to draw fully informed conclusions about the options for induction and/or intervention that they may be offered through the course of their labor and delivery, including (but not limited to): Pharmaceutical induction of labor, continuous IV fluids, traditional and intermittent EFM, Pitocin for augmentation, cervical exams, epidurals, IV pain medication, and much more.  Participants will be able to initiate informed discussions with their providers about the interventions they are interested in or hesitant about using in their birth story to facilitate more effective and clear communication between families and providers. Families will have the background knowledge necessary to use the BRAIN acronym for informed decision making in a healthcare situation.
