Event description

Description

The Midwives of New Jersey, LLC have a corporate goal of Improving Birth Outcomes in New Jersey. As part of that goal, they hosted the Symposium last year, The Evidence for CHOICE. The conference was very successful for bringing together birth workers from around the state to examine the evidence presented by Dr. Rebecca Dekker of Evidence Based Birth specifically the evidence that supports Midwifery Care, Homebirth and Waterbirth.

The Symposium theme for 2018 Avoiding Cesarean is a hot topic among healthcare providers, administrators and policy makers alike. Our goal is to present solutions to a complicated problem from several different unique perspectives and bring together birth workers from around the state who share The Midwives of New Jersey’s vision for healthy births for all New Jersey families.

This year, our Keynote speaker is Dr. Neel Shah. Neel Shah, MD, MPP, is Assistant Professor of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Biology at Harvard Medical School, and director of the Delivery Decisions Initiative at Ariadne Labs. His team is currently collaborating with hospitals across the United States, and using methods from design, systems engineering, and management to reduce the epidemic of avoidable c-section. Dr. Shah will be discussing his work and recommendations at the conference.

The Symposium will also look at reducing avoidable surgical births from the culture on labor and delivery’s perspective and from the Patient perspective.
