Missy CheyneyMANA 2015 Featured Speaker: Missy Cheyney

MANAstats Update

Inform your practice with new data on relative risk in the home birth setting. Melissa Cheyney, PhD, CPM, LDM, Chair of the Midwives Alliance Division of Research, will be presenting on new outcomes from the largest ever set of records on physiologic birth, including the most recent 4.0 dataset.

Because mortality and morbidity are rare in the home birth setting, examining the impact of individual risk factors on birth outcomes can be challenging. Based on an analysis of the larger, newly combined dataset, Missy will share results on risk factors that are being discussed with families and at the policy level, including VBAC, breech, and multiple births.
