Spring 2022 Free Public Webinar:
Failure to Progress or Failure to Wait?
Did You Know??
Countless people have had Cesareans for “Failure to Progress,” and many of them were in early labor when they were told, “You’re not progressing fast enough.” This spring, we’re excited to share a webinar with evidence-based information about Failure to Progress (or is it Failure to Wait?).
In this Evidence Based Birth® webinar, we will cover:
- What’s the history of “Failure to Progress”?
- Doctors changed the guidelines to prevent unnecessary Cesareans… did this make a difference in C-section rates?
- What are the top 5 factors that influence labor progress?
PLUS a bonus advocacy method!
Join us as we dive into the latest research evidence on Failure to Progress or Failure to Wait!
Webinar registration is open. Each showing is identical and occurs live. You only need to register for one!

Did you know there are different ways to monitor the baby’s heartbeat during labor and birth? Continuous electronic fetal monitoring (EFM) is common but not without its drawbacks. We discuss the pros and cons of EFM and its alternative, hands-on listening with a fetal Doppler or fetal stethoscope.
