Perinatal Conference 2017

This has far reaching implications for the physical and mental health for both parents and child.

Clients, Colleagues, or Critics? Negotiating Gaps between evidence and community standards

What does emerging science on neurobiology and epigenetics tell us about decision making in pregnancy, labour and birth? Does birth place matter? Should caesarean reduction be the goal? How long is labour? How long is human gestation? How accurate is an ultrasound date? What happens when clients want care that does not align with community standard? How do our messages about evidence and risk affect quality and safety? What do women say? What do providers believe? This session will explore new patient-centered outcomes from research on quality, safety, risk and responsibility. Together we will review and discuss emerging tools and strategies to facilitate conversations about the best available evidence and respectful maternity care.

Trauma Informed Care Lecture Pack

Trauma Informed Care is defined as an organizational structure and treatment framework that involves understanding, recognizing and responding to the effects of all types of trauma. The perinatal period is a particularly vulnerable one, and it is crucial to understand how past trauma of any kind may influence the way that clients perceive and experience their perinatal care. Join our expert speakers to learn more about how to approach perinatal families through a lens of trauma informed care.
