Why Water for Labor and Birth Workshop?

  • Are you considering waterbirth?  We truly believe that waterbirth is the single best thing to happen to birth! Not only does it provide women with an alternative method for pain relief, but it provides a sacred space for them to labor and deliver their babies. Come learn the facts about waterbirth in this 2-hour seminar taught by one of the country’s waterbirth experts, Jennifer Vanderlaan PhD. CNM. In this workshop, Jennifer will address the benefits of water immersion and waterbirth, the science behind waterbirth and discuss waterbirth safety. We will be showing a waterbirth slideshow and will have a time for questions and answers.

About the Conference:

The Midwives of New Jersey, LLC, a premier midwifery practice in Central New Jersey, is hosting this multidisciplinary educational forum. Integrating these evidence-based methodologies into the practice of Obstetrics in New Jersey will help to Improve Pregnancy and Childbirth outcomes in our state.

The first day of this two-day event is for parents. The Waterbirth Workshop is presented by Emory Professor, Dr. Jennifer Vanderlaan CNM. The Savvy Birth Parent’s Workshop will be presented by Rebecca Dekker, founder of Evidence Based Birth®.  The second session, held on Saturday is for birth workers of all kind: nurses, midwives, doulas, obstetricians, hospital administrators and childbirth educators – and parents are welcome as well!

Our theme is “The Evidence for Birthing change to Birth Choice.” Speakers will be presenting the evidence that supports patient directed decisions for their birth, midwifery care, home birth, water immersion and waterbirth, with special attention focused on avoiding invasive procedures. This amazing conference is not to be missed!
