Description

As cesarean rates have climbed to almost one-third of all births in the United States, current research and professional organizations have identified letting labor begin on its own as one of the most important strategies for reducing the primary cesarean rate. At least equally important, letting labor begin on its own supports normal physiology, prevents iatrogenic prematurity, and prevents the cascade of interventions caused by labor induction. This article is an updated evidence-based review of the "Lamaze International Care Practices That Promote Normal Birth, Care Practice #1: Let Labor Begin on Its Own," published in The Journal of Perinatal Education, 16(3), 2007.

Participants can earn 0.5 Lamaze Contact Hours credit upon successful completion.
