Speaker: Nora Tallman, N.D., C.N.M. on Iatrogenic anxiety in Maternity Care: Are we Undermining our patients' self-confidence?

Studies have shown that emotional states of increased anxiety/fear and decreased self-efficacy have negative impacts on maternity outcomes. What is causing this anxiety and lack of self-confidence in some of our patients? Is it possible that the maternity care that we provide could be contributing to the problem? This presentation will provide a format to discuss the possible emotional side effects of risk screening, routing pregnancy surveillance and management decisions based on risk prediction.
