Evidence Based Birth® Seminar Series: Newborn Procedures

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

What is the evidence on the safety of Vitamin K? Does delayed cord clamping lead to jaundice? How can we help families who give birth by Cesarean get skin to skin in our local operating rooms? In this interactive seminar, we will take an in-depth look at the research evidence on newborn procedures for term infants during the “golden hour.” We will cover the history and research on interventions that happen during the first hour of life—including which procedures are the “best practices,” and which procedures can be safely delayed or declined!

This seminar will be held August 2, 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. Describe evidence on two best practices for newborns in the golden hour: Skin-to- skin and delayed cord clamping

2. Discuss evidence on procedures that often take precedence over skin-to- skin and bonding, including suction, hatting, bathing, Vitamin K, and eye ointment
