You play an important role in helping pregnant women achieve the safest, healthiest birth possible. Throughout pregnancy and birth, women need strong partners so they can get the maternity care that meets their unique needs.

Lamaze’s Push for Your Baby effort is aimed at helping women work in partnership with their care providers to achieve the best outcomes. And, we know there’s much work to be done. Certain birth practices, such as the overuse of cesarean surgery, early induction and confinement to bed can make it harder for women to have a safe and healthy birth.

As part of our initiative, we’re pleased to invite you to join an upcoming educational webinar for nurses and childbirth educators, which will offer one nursing contact hour and one Lamaze contact hour (with the purchase of a post-webinar quiz).
