Each year, the Maternal Child Nursing Symposium seeks to expand our knowledge in women's, infant's and children's health care. The symposium features national and local speakers presenting on current obstetric and pediatric topics. This year we have nationally known speaker and former AWHONN National President and member of the Board of Directors, Rebecca Cypher, MSN, PNNP presenting on management of Category II Fetal Heart Rate (FHR) patterns, Complex Case Studies in EFM and Trauma in Pregnancy.Other speakers include Dr. Curtis Dorn, Clinical Associate Professor Pediatrics and Neonatologist at Wesley Medical Center, speaking on Limits of Viability, identifying key factors in the wide variation in survival data for those 22 - 23 weeks gestation infants. Nationally, there is a huge focus on expanding and rethinking Postpartum Care. As nurses, we have known that moms and babies need extended care and follow up past the six weeks following birth. What does that look like will be shared by Dr. Taylor Bertschy, DO, FACOG and OBGYN Hospitalist at Wesley Medical Center.
