Newborn Care Tips

Evidence Based Midwifery Standards for Newborn Care

As midwives, we have a large scope of practice to offer women and their families. We can do the traditional route of maternity care, but I challenge midwives to practice to their full scope of licensure and training. We can also take care of the newborn first month of life, gynecological services, contraception, primary care, sexual health, menopause, well women care, and treatment of partners with care is around sexually transmitted infections. We have a vast array of capability to serve our communities and this extensive course will go over every aspect of evidence-based midwifery skills.

Keep up with current trends or just expand your midwifery services with this thorough, lifetime access online training. There are videos, PowerPoints, outlines, policies, and resources to really take your midwifery practice to the next level!

About the co-author with Leslie Cornwell, CNM

Rhanishia Smith, FNP, CNM

Rhanishia graduated with her Bachelor's in Nursing in 2010. She went on to start her career as a RN, serving in The United States Public Health Service as a Commissioned Officer. Rhanishia spent the beginning of her nursing journey, serving the Native American population in Arizona. During that time, she worked in family medicine, obstetrics, and Public Health Nursing. Rhanishia worked closely with prenatal women out in the community, helping them to successfully breastfeed and care for their newborns. This is when Rhanishia decided that she would one day work with women and children as a primary care provider. This experience helped Rhanishia become board certified as an international lactation consultant (IBCLC).After completing her Master's in Nursing and becoming a Family Nurse Practitioner, Rhanishia soon discovered that she would want to become an expert at Women’s Health and become a better advocate for the women and families she cared for. Rhanishia is currently enrolled in Baylor’s Doctoral Midwifery Program, and working as Labor & Delivery nurse at a level IV facility in Houston, Texas. Rhanishia is most excited to empower and educate women. She does so in her current nursing role, but also enjoys educating via her business and YouTube channel titled PractitionHER. Rhanishia is keenly aware that when you care for a mother – the entire family dynamic is enhanced.
