Rates of maternal morbidity and mortality in the United States are high and continue to rise. One of the contributing factors to the high rates of maternal morbidity and likely mortality is the overuse of medical interventions such as cesarean births. Many women are not aware of the short- and long-term risks of overuse of medical interventions. Childbirth education is a key strategy for helping women be aware of their birth options and fully participate in shared decision-making.

Participants may earn 1 Lamaze Contact Hour/1.2 CABRN Contact Hours for viewing the webinar and passing the quiz.
