With the release of the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG, 2014) bulletin, “The Safe Prevention of the Primary Cesarean Delivery”, childbirth professionals are challenged to update their teaching and professional practices to reflect the definition of active labor from 4 to 6 cm of cervical dilation. This activity will review the meaning of, “6 is the New 4,” and how childbirth professionals can update their teaching and clinical strategies to reflect these changes and meet the needs of childbearing women.

Participants can earn 0.5 Lamaze Contact Hours and 0.5 contact hours of CNE credit upon successful completion
