Webinar - TeamBirth for Birth Centers
Online Learning Center
TeamBirth, a program developed by Ariadne Labs’ Delivery Decisions Initiative, aims to improve both safety and dignity in childbirth by structuring the essential information that should be communicated during every labor assessment and by creating ongoing opportunities for the team to review that information together throughout labor.
During TeamBirth huddles, all members of the team are named beginning with the birthing person in labor and including, at a minimum, their birth attendants. The purpose of this step is to promote “psychological safety” by giving every member of the team permission and opportunity to share concerns. For every care decision, the birthing person is asked about their preferences, the full care team reviews the plan of care together, and the team makes a commitment as to when they will communicate again.
The purpose of this webinar is to discuss the potential TeamBirth has within birth centers, recognizing that the needs and priorities differ from hospital birthing units.
Panelists: Amber Weiseth DNP, MSN, RN, Pam Harmon DNP, MSN, RNC-NIC, Melissa Denmark, MA, LM.
