Evidence Based Birth® Seminar Series: Due Dates

  • Good Life Birth Place 8020 O Street Lincoln, NE, 68510 United States (map)

Did you know that the number one reason for induction in most countries is going past your due date? In this Evidence Based Birth® seminar, packed with facts, you will learn the evidence on induction for reaching the due date and for going past 41-42 weeks. We’ll also cover a bit about “advanced maternal age,” and discuss the actual numbers of increase in stillbirth with older age. Case studies and discussion questions make this a lively seminar that leaves everyone buzzing with excitement.

This seminar will be held October 4, 2018, 5-7pm, at Good Life Birth Place, 8020 O Street, Lincoln, NE. Seminar admission includes pizza dinner, please indicate any allergies and intolerances when you register.


Evidence Based Birth® is a continuing education provider for the Kentucky Board of Nursing # 7-0081. Nursing contact hours can be applied to most childbirth educator and doula certifications as well as the Certified Professional Midwife credential. We have also applied for 1.5 contact hours from the American College of Nurse Midwives and 1.5 prescribed credits from the American Academy of Family Physicians.

Learning outcomes:

1. Discuss how “Due Dates” are calculated and the accuracy of these calculations

2. Describe the risks of going past “due”

3. Review the evidence on benefits and risks of induction versus waiting for labor to start on its own

4. Describe pros and cons of induction vs. expectant management for advanced maternal age
