The Waterbirth Workshops were created for all people interested in knowing more about this remarkable birth option.
Not only are the basics covered, but also the research, the physiology, the reasons and rationales for using warm water immersion in labor and birth. Topics like 'How to avoid 2nd stage difficulties; dealing with shoulder dystocia; assessing blood loss; delayed third stage; how to resuscitate tub side and initiating breastfeeding are covered in this all day course.
This course was approved by ACOG in September 2007, and was presented at the Gentle Birth World Congress. Workshops have been already presented in these cities Dayton, Ohio; Cleveland, Ohio; Atlanta, Georgia; Dallas, Texas; Chino, California; Ft. Lauderdale, Florida; Largo, Florida; Chicago, Illinois; Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, Orlando, Florida and Portland, Oregon. There was much praise and gratitude for the information. The workshop has changed how some midwives attend births.
Certificates of attendance are given to each person and can be used to obtain CEU's. The course has been approved for continuing education by the Ohio Nurse Executives Associaiton and the Florida Association of Midwives. An ACNM application for credits is in process. If you wish to hold a credential in Waterbirth, the workshop is followed up with additional requirements. These additional requirements will be covered in the workshop.
