Preventing Primary Cesareans:

Your Role Within the New ACOG Guidelines

March 20, 2015

When the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology and the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine released their consensus statement “Safe Prevention of the Primary Cesarean Delivery” this past March it was headline news around the country. It was a call for major practice change among their members. Childbirth Educators, Doulas, Nurses and Midwives are now asking “What does this mean for my practice and how can I support this change?” Please join us at the 2015 REACHE Conference to hear what this practice change looks like and what our role can be in it.

What is the REACHE Conference?

REACHE stands for Regional Association of Childbirth Educators of Puget Sound. Our one purpose is to put on a fantastic conference each year for Childbirth Educators. Because of the dynamic speakers we have invited through the years, the conference also now attracts doulas, midwives, nurses and lactation specialists. In recent years we have offered continuing education hours to these groups. Our conference takes place in the greater Puget Sound area but attracts professionals from around Washington, neighboring states and Canada. The conference usually takes place in March or April.
