Are you an L & D nurse who wishes you had more tools in your toolbox to help keep patients comfortable during labor?
By attending Comfort Measures for Labor and Delivery Nurses, you will not only get hands-on practice with comfort measures skills, but you'll also learn how you can overcome barriers to providing comfort measures on your unit!
All nurses who register at the Professional level or higher will earn 3 nursing contact hours, and those who register as Super Users will receive a Comfort Measures Toolkit to take back to your unit and teach to your peers. Come enjoy an afternoon of demonstrations, discussion, and networking with L & D nurses from all over the Sacramento area.
This Comfort Measures Workshop is taught by Laurie Suggs (CLD), Evidence Based Birth® Instructor. We designed this workshop specifically for Labor and Delivery nurses who are looking to add to their labor support knowledge and skills. However, local doulas, midwives, and childbirth educators are also encouraged to register!
Contact hours: By attending this workshop and completing an evaluation and quiz, registrants at the Professional or Super User ticket level will earn a certificate for 3 nursing contact hours from Evidence Based Birth®, a continuing education provider for the Kentucky Board of Nursing #7-0081. Nursing contact hours can also be applied to most childbirth educator and doula certifications.
Learning Objectives for the Comfort Measures Workshop:
Discuss the evidence on comfort measures

Discuss how we can overcome barriers to providing comfort measures
Are you passionate about evidence based care, but regularly witness hospital policies taking precedence over your client's choice? It can be frustrating to watch clients receive care that isn’t based on research and not quite knowing how to help.
The Savvy Birth Pro Workshop (3 contact hours) was developed by Evidence Based Birth® to give professionals the skills you need to make a genuine difference and help your clients attain the best possible chance at evidence based care during pregnancy and labor.
The 3-hour Savvy Birth Pro Workshop will succeed in preparing you to help your clients assert their right to evidence based care in a respectful way that builds bridges, not walls. We believe the inspirational knowledge you will gain from the Savvy Birth Pro Workshop will have a positive ripple effect that extends to your clients, the professionals you work with and your community!
You’re no longer alone in the quest to help more families receive respectful, high quality maternity care! The Savvy Birth Pro Workshop does more than provide great skills; it creates a strong community of connected professionals who together share this important mission.
