Published: Aug. 12, 2020

By the time the Spinning Babies conference concluded in the basement of Methodist Jennie Edmundson Hospital, members of the hospital’s Birthing Center were itching to get back upstairs to implement newly learned practices.

“They were just so excited,” Ashley Nihsen, director of Jennie Edmundson’s Birthing Center, said of the eight members of her team who attended the recent event. “Just saying, ‘Oh, these are going to work,’ and, ‘Oh my gosh. I would have been able to use this for a previous patient.' ... The excitement in the room was just amazing.”

The idea behind the training was to provide an educational platform for staff to learn procedures that help with decreasing cesarean section numbers, as well as focusing on options outside of traditional medications used in labor.
