When You Know Better, Do Better

  • Duration: 60 Mins
  • Credits: 1 CERP, 1 R-CERP, 1 Midwifery CEU
  • Learning Format: Webinar
  • Handout: Yes
  • Origin:

This hour will be about honoring midwifery within the history of how birth changed through standard obstetrical practices. Acknowledging and reframing what normal is through the lens of instinctual behaviors. We will look at the embryological blueprint of birth (mammalian birth) as a template for normal and how one can support normal/instinctual in all birthing environments.

Beginning from the position that “knowing normal” is baseline, critical and foundational to midwifery care. It is imperative to also know what “not normal” or pathology is in order to provide safe, life saving care when needed.

We will investigate how fear often feeds unnecessary interventions regardless of where birth occurs. Techniques will be given for how to work with and regulate the fear one might experience.

This GOLD inspired presentation will be filled with storytelling, historical perspective and the captivating journey of birth. Karen delivers a paradigm shifting, dynamic lecture to expand our midwifery and birth mindset.

Learning Objectives:

Objective 1: Explain why knowing both normal and pathological is critical to safe competent midwifery care;

Objective 2: List 2 practical skills for re-establishing presence in themselves when they are in fear or not sure what to do;

Objective 3: Name 2 steps that are part of our DNA’s embryological blueprint of coming into being
