@brighamandwomens studied twin vaginal birth and the article is free to read in the Green Journal. Search for “Evaluation of a Quality Improvement Intervention to Increase Vaginal Birth for Twins” to check it out. 👶👶 #cesareanrates #maternalhealth
#Repost @who: “Every birth is unique. Some labours progress quickly, others don't. Unnecessary medical interventions should be avoided if the woman and her baby are in good condition.”
We envision the collective work being done to meet Healthy People 2020 goals as a nationwide quality improvement project. HOW YOU CAN HELP: We need feedback on a prototype of a state dashboard. 1️⃣ Visit cesareanrates.org/arkansas 2️⃣ Read the content 3️⃣ Use the secure form at the bottom of the page to leave your thoughts. Thank you!

The new Blueprint for Advancing High-Value Maternity Care Through Physiologic Childbearing from @npwf notes that “[m]any women are not supported to become fully informed about shortcomings of the maternity care system (e.g., practice variation, overuse, underuse, extent of adverse outcomes) and to acquire the skills to navigate this system and seek optimal care for themselves and their babies.” It’s true and we have worked for years to help demystify the concept of unwarranted variation in #cesareanrates, #VBAC availability and other childbirth data. Check out our blog (link in bio) and read more.
Current public health efforts focus on supporting intended vaginal birth. It’s important to make it your preferences clear to your birth team if you’d like to avoid a #cesarean birth unless absolutely necessary. 🤰🏽💜 #mybirthmatters
