In the first half of the webinar Dr. Nathan Fox will cover twin pregnancies and potential ways to reduce risk of adverse outcomes in women pregnant with twins. It is well-known that all twin pregnancies are at increased risk of pregnancy complications such as preterm birth, preeclampsia, fetal growth restriction, and cesarean delivery. However, strategies to mitigate these risks often differ across prenatal providers including midwives, obstetricians, and maternal fetal medicine specialists. Dr. Fox plans to review the evidence supporting certain interventions intended to reduce risk in twins and provide recommendations for how to care for women with twin pregnancies, and how these interventions can be effective and practical for a wide range of prenatal care settings. He may also sprinkle in a few jokes, so be on the lookout for those! In the second half of the webinar Dr. Andrei Rebarber will cover some unique aspects in the management and treatment of monochorionic twin gestations. Additionally, we will discuss the current literature on fetal pregnancy reduction (elective and selective approaches) in dichorionic twin gestations and its impact on birth outcomes for the pregnancy.

Dr. Cynthia Gyamfi-Bannerman will cover the ongoing issues of preterm birth and its effects on the late preterm infant. After declining for a decade, the U.S. preterm birth rate has been rising for the last several years. Much of this increase is related to late preterm births between 34 to 36 weeks of gestation. The ability to predict preterm birth accurately remains elusive. Identification of women with preterm labor symptoms which result in late preterm versus term delivery would be of benefit to the patient, the health system and the unborn neonate. This program will enhance attendees' understanding of the importance of new research surrounding late preterm birth and its effect on maternal health, obstetric and neonatal outcomes.

Dr. Brian Iriye will highlight the need for the implementation of evidence-based solutions obtained from medical research. Over the years, systems have attempted to put various care bundles and other tools in place with mixed success in actually improving healthcare outcomes on a national scale. Implementation science takes evidence-based interventions and teaches us how to put that research to purposeful use in the real world. The principles of implementation science need to be embraced in obstetric practice. This program will help attendees understand the importance of this new and changing field to further improve maternal health and obstetric outcomes
