Presenter: Dr. Elena Rivera-Patton
Prenatal and newborn care make up a large percentage of clinic and hospital visits. As interpreters, we need to be well-versed in the specific vocabulary that comes up in these settings. This webinar will review normal care for healthy pregnant women and healthy babies, as well as the most frequent complications such as gestational diabetes, hypertension during pregnancy and newborn jaundice. The webinar will also discuss vocabulary for labor and delivery, including pain management options such as epidural anesthesia or spinal anesthesia in the case of a cesarean section. This webinar is approved for 1 CCHI CE hour and .1 RID CEU. CCHI CEUs are accepted by the NBCMI. Cost: $25.
