Monthly GALS Volunteer Meeting

Due Dates with Advanced Maternal Age Seminar

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, you will learn the evidence on induction for reaching the due date and for going past 41-42 weeks. We'll cover a little bit about 'advanced maternal age,' and discuss the actual risk of stillbirth with age. We'll also watch a short video describing the results of the recently published ARRIVE study recorded by Rebecca Dekker, founder of Evidence Based Birth®!
