(BEST) is the original certification course that prepares out-of-hospital midwives, physicians, nurses, and birth assistants to manage obstetrical emergencies with greater confidence and proficiency. Participants build on core competencies and apply current evidence to clinical practice though lively discussion and mentored simulation. BEST is the longest-running emergency skills course for out-of-hospital midwives, proudly educating midwives thousands of midwives since 2008. The live workshop confers 1.6 ACNM CEUs (16 hours including two for pharmacology) and 14 maternal and 2 newborn CEUs for MEAC.
Midwives who attend births at home and in free-standing birth centers work with low-risk clientele and seldom encounter emergencies. Yet life-threatening pregnancy and delivery complications may arise unexpectedly during an otherwise normal labor. In a crisis, the birth attendant must respond adeptly, but techniques seldom practiced decay over time, and ongoing research brings new recommendations. BEST sharpens skills so that providers may confidently manage obstetrical emergencies.
