Return to Reducing Primary Cesareans

For more information and to apply

The RPC provides practical, bite-sized tools and materials for teams who are working to promote vaginal birth and reduce primary cesareans. We are aligned the with AIM initiative and its change bundles. Interdisciplinary teams participating in RPC have reduced their NTSV rates an average of 8 percent in the first year and saved money while doing it. The collaborative offers coaching, materials that guide implementation and save people from having to reinvent the wheel, and support from a data center. Monthly webinars are offered live and are also available as recordings. Participants can get continuing education and maintenance of certification credits for participating. 

We would love to have you join us! We are accepting applications on a rolling basis. If you are interested, please review this flyer and watch our video below. Ready to apply? See this document for instructions!
