Join Heidi Duncan for Evidence Based Birth® Seminar Series: 
Newborn Procedures in the Golden Hour
(1.5 nursing contact hours and 0.15 ACNM CEUs)

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 the operating room? In this seminar, we will take a look at the research on newborn procedures for term infants during the “golden hour.” Heidi Duncan 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!


After attending this seminar, you will walk away with confidence in your ability to talk with clients about the latest evidence on skin-to-skin, delayed cord clamping, bathing, weighing, hatting, Vitamin K, and eye ointment.

Learning outcomes from this Seminar:
>Describe evidence on two best practices for newborns in the golden hour: Skin-to-skin and delayed cord clamping
>Discuss evidence on procedures that often take precedence over skin-to-skin and bonding, including suction, hatting, bathing, Vitamin K, and eye ointment
