Making maternity care more compassionate and individualized
through informed decision-making and evidence-based care.
“Evidence-based care” uses current research and theories to guide care practices in a dynamic way. This means that changes occur quickly when solid evidence shows the benefit or risk to a certain practice.
It has helped show that routine episiotomies are not actually good for a woman’s health, elective delivery before 39 weeks gestation is detrimental to the baby’s health, elective cesareans pose greater risks to mother and baby than those that are medically indicated, and delayed cord clamping is beneficial to the baby’s health.
