About This Series: APPPAH is committed to the midwifery model of care for many reasons: It is mother and baby friendly, provides continuity of care and a quality of presence with birth that decreases maternal and infant mortality and morbidity. It also increases the likelihood that the birthing family will get off to a great start. Data has shown that the midwifery model increases birth outcomes yet is under utilized in many parts of the world. In this series you will have the opportunity to hear from midwives and others that support this model of care and optimal birth experiences for everyone.There are two parts: Presentations from midwives in our program, and presentations that support birth outcomes for your complete learning pleasure. There is also a bonus section with papers by practitioners, and a video about improving the baby's experience of birth.Three lectures have been chosen as a Free Preview for you as a gift! Enjoy!
