Title: The Power and Potential of Newborn Stem Cells
Speaker: Lauren Isley, CGC, MS
Description: Stem cells are non-specialized cells that are able to proliferate and differentiate into specialized cells. They can be collected from umbilical cord blood and tissue after birth and then stored for potential future treatment of various diseases, including lymphoma and leukemia. Proper collection technique is vital to the utility of the samples for future treatments, and parent education is a key component in the process.
This education program explores the types of stem cells, their current and potential uses, proper collection techniques, processing and storage of the collected blood or tissue, and education for expectant parents. To register, visit: https://go.coopersurgical.com/awhonn-stem-cells

Title: Decreasing the Risk of Maternal Morbidities During Cesarean Delivery at Full Dilation and Introduction to Fetal Pillow
Speaker: Deb Ebert MSN, RN, NEA-BC, CNOR, CCRN-K, CPAN, CAPA – Associate Vice President, Perioperative Services, Memorial Hermann Texas Medical Center, Houston, TX
Description: About a third of deliveries in the US are performed by caesarean section. When a caesarean delivery is performed in the second stage of labor, both mother and fetus are at high risk of additional complications. In addition, the procedure for a second stage/ full dilation / cesarean delivery may not be well understood by all members of the obstetric team. Ensuring the health and safety of both mother and fetus during this scenario requires that the team be aware of all potential morbidities, and that they be prepared to use the technique associated with the best outcomes.
This education symposium will review the anatomical landmarks and normal progress of labor and delivery, discuss the incidence and risks associated with cesarean delivery at full dilation, and describe the interventions available to manage this challenging scenario, focusing on the use of a cephalic elevation device.
