Tarrant Co. Birth Network Round-Up April 8

For those of you in the Ft. Worth area, we are having our second Tarrant County Birth Network meeting this Thursday, April 8 from 7:00-9:00 p.m. at the North Richland Hills Public Library.

Our topic is Induction of Labor. There have been a couple of hospitals in our area that have recently stopped performing inductions without medical indication. The Director of Women's Services at North Hills Hospital will be speaking to the Birth Network about this step they have taken in order to improve maternity care in our community.

In addition, Mellanie Sheppard, board certified lactation consultant, will be speaking about the effects of induction on breastfeeding, especially in a baby born too early.

We invite all pregnant women and fathers, or anyone interested in learning more about induction of labor. The meeting is free and open to the public.

If you have any questions, etc., feel free to email us at tarrantcounty@birthnetwork.org or leave a message here as well. Please, let us know how we can serve you and our community. If you would like to be a part of TCBN by volunteering your time or talents or becoming a member, again, please contact us. We are welcoming ideas for topics and events for our monthly meetings.

We look forward to getting to know you and ultimately improving maternity care for the women, babies, and families of Tarrant County.
