UNT Health Nurse-Midwives Attend Water Birth Conference
The Consortium of Texas Certified Nurse-Midwives- DFW Chapter recently hosted a conference on water birth. Water birth expert Dianne Garland traveled all the way from the UK to present the latest practices and recommendations. Katie and Lindsay were in attendance, as were two of our midwifery students, Lissa and Amy. This was a fun and informative experience for all who were able to go! Katie and Lindsay brought back some great information to share with the group, which will contribute to us bringing you an even better water birth experience!
Infant Mortality Summit
September was Infant Mortality Awareness Month. On September 27th, three of the UNT Nurse-midwives participated in the 12th Annual Tarrant County Infant Mortality Summit. Our group’s participation with Centering Pregnancy was highlighted in a poster presentation. Centering has been identified as a modality for healthcare delivery that improves pregnancy outcomes and thereby decreases infant mortality. We hope to continue our Prenatal Centering programs in efforts to improve women’s health outcomes and help more healthy babies go home with their parents.
We look forward to future opportunities to partner with The Tarrant County Infant Health Network in “helping babies survive and thrive.”
