Abstract:

Nurse support for women in labor decreases medical intervention and increases good outcomes for both mother and baby (AWHONN, 2011). With increasing acuity, charting expectations and use of medical interventions nurses are finding themselves spending less time at their patient’s bedside. The common utilization of induction and cesarean section as means of delivery has contributed to the decline is nurses’ skill for caring for the low risk women in spontaneous labor. This presentation seeks to reintroduce the skills, knowledge and art of nursing that women in labor require for a low risk, low medical intervention birth.

Learning Objectives:

Objective 1: a: Participants will be able to identify 2 ways to support women in labor. Objective 2: Participants will demonstrate increased awareness of the barriers to low medical intervention in a low-risk birth.
Objective 3: Participants will examine the AWHONN position statement: Nursing Support of Laboring Women.
