How far along are your students when they take your class? 28 weeks? 32 weeks? Farther along than that? How would it change your ability to promote the best childbirth outcomes for moms if they took your class earlier?
Early pregnancy is a terrific time to engage with students to reach them with critical information that can meaningfully shape their childbirth experiences. With the flood of emotion in early pregnancy, sometimes it’s easy for pregnant women to overlook issues that can impact “The Big Day.” The purpose of Lamaze’s latest educator webinar is to examine ways in which childbirth educators, nurses and maternity care providers can educate students during early pregnancy in order to increase their chances for a safe and healthy birth.
After attending this webinar participants will be able to:
- Identify high-impact early pregnancy decisions for women and families
- Examine early pregnancy pitfalls that can lead to challenges later
- Identify resources available to help you reach students earlier and get them into a class
This webinar discussion will provide resources and perspectives on what you can do to assist students who are early in their pregnancy-what should they be thinking about and doing, and how they can take charge in pushing for the best possible care.
