1: Explain the transition from child to parent.

2. List teaching behaviors that may reinforce innocence rather than inspire maturation in the parents with whom they work.

3. Use new skills to support individuals as they transition into parenthood.

Abstract:

Becoming a parent is a process of profound maturation, one that requires expectant parents to grow into decision-makers for their growing families. Teachers and experts in the childbirth and parenting fields naturally want to share their hard-earned wisdom with expectant parents. However, doing so without awareness may be unwittingly reinforcing the idea for new parents, that experts “out there” hold the knowledge needed to be make decisions in the best interest of their growing family. This effectively keeps expectant parents in the energetic position of the child (the one who receives guidance) rather than supporting them to grow into the position of the parent (the one who makes decisions and acts). If we want to help the expectant parents grow into autonomous and self-guided parents, educators must practice in such a way that inspires the growth needed in the parent rather than simply fill them with information. Flipping from the authority of teacher and expert to mentor or guide, reduces the hierarchical nature of the relationship and can help awaken the inner authority of the parent-to-be. Understanding this dynamic along with a few basic tools can help you better support your clients as they stretch into parenthood.

Elly Taylor is a perinatal relationship expert, award winning author, creator and founder of Becoming Us. As a relationship counsellor and a new mother at the same time, Elly personally and professionally experienced the gap in preparation and support for the life changes and relationship challenges that come with early parenthood. Fast forward 20 years and Elly's passion is helping parenthood professionals to support the mental, emotional and relationship wellbeing of expecting and new parents. Her Becoming Us approach provides parents with a research and evidence-based pathway through the parenthood territory so families can know how to thrive as they grow. Elly has presented Becoming Us at national and international conferences, served on the advisory panel for various university research projects and trains professionals worldwide to be Parenthood Tour Guides.

1. Explain how common PMH and relationship issues are.

2. List three major life transitions that impact both mothers’ and fathers’ mental health and marriages.

3. List three ways to include fathers and partners in prenatal preparation and postpartum support.
Abstract:

"The “transition” into parenthood is supposed to be a time of joy, love and wonder, and yet research paints a very different picture: currently 1 in 3 mothers and 1 in 5 fathers suffer from anxiety or depression during the perinatal period. You might also be shocked to know that 92% of couples report increased conflict and 67% a decline in relationship satisfaction in the first few years of family.
And referring to parenthood as a “transition” is misleading – there are, in fact, multiple transitions for couples to navigate.
Including fathers or partners in pregnancy, birth and the multiple transitions of early parenthood helps to reduce both mothers' and fathers' risks for anxiety, depression and relationship problems and supports both parents' mental, emotional and relationship health, so the whole family can thrive. In this presentation, practitioners will learn simple and easy ways to include fathers and partners, even if they’re not in the room, and discover how small things can make a big difference to a family’s future.

Tracy Cassels, PhD is the founder of Evolutionary Parenting, a website focused on disseminating the research on parenting. In addition to her writing, she provides courses and individual help to families around the world on myriad parenting issues. She has previously worked in non-profit and policy positions in the areas of child development and education and is currently an advisor to the Children’s Health and Human Rights Partnership in Canada.

She lives in Prince Edward County, Ontario, Canada with her husband and two children.

1. Define what a high-needs baby is
2. Explain reasons why our culture does not support these families.
3. List key features for raising a sensitive/orchid child.
4. Explain to help parents navigate an unsupportive society.
Abstract:

Sensitive or orchid individuals make up about 20% of the population, children included. These individuals face what we call ‘differential susceptibility’ based on their environments, child-rearing included. In environments that are not well-suited to their sensitive nature, they face higher rates of disease, mental health disorders, and other negative outcomes. In contrast, when in environments that are supportive and well-suited to their nature, they thrive and can have outcomes that surpass those of their less sensitive counterparts. The problem for most parents is that the advice and techniques common in our culture are at odds with what these children need, putting parents in a difficult spot of either not knowing how to parent such a child (but knowing the advice seems wrong) or giving in and finding themselves in ongoing struggles with their child. This talk will review the research on sensitive/orchid children and how we can use this information to help families identify parenting methods and techniques in the areas of general parenting, sleep, child care/schooling, and discipline that will provide the type of foundation these children need to thrive.

1: Define pregnancy-related suicide
2: List two key findings from maternal suicide research
3: List two recommendations for preventing suicide in higher risk individuals
4: List two symptoms of an individual experiencing suicidality
U.S.A. Sayida Peprah, PsyD, Doula
Abstract:

The occurrence of a suicide during pregnancy or up to one year postpartum is a rare but tragic event. While we expect that family members will be at a loss for how to detect or care for an acutely mentally ill loved one, it is concerning that many perinatal/maternal care and support professionals also report feeling unprepared and ill equipped to recognize and address the needs of patients in this situation. Additionally, publications on maternal mortality generally do not include information on maternal suicide, limiting providers access to updated research on the topic. During this presentation, maternal suicide research findings, as well as clinical considerations will be reviewed. Maternal suicide risks, symptoms, cultural considerations and recommendations for prevention and intervention will be reviewed. Practical scenarios for what to do in real situations will be highlighted.

The Crying Curve and the Impact on Postpartum and Breastfeeding
U.S.A. Kimberly Bepler, IBCLC, CPD, CNPE, CLE

Kimberly Bepler has been serving families professionally since 2001, and teaching expectant couples and new doulas since 2004. She began first as a postpartum doula, and soon after found a passion to educate so she added breastfeeding and new parent education at her local medical system teaching at 3 different hospitals. She started Pathway 3 back in 2006, and became an IBCLC in 2011. She owns ABC Doula & Newborn Care, a postpartum doula agency in Portland, OR that has served over 2000 families and employs 20 doulas and educators. She is also the mother of 2 almost grown children (a frequently humbling experience) and her family resides in Phoenix near her snowbird parents. Kimberly has taught and served thousands of expectant and new parents, including over 700 families with twins. Building on her experience teaching for 17 years within two hospital systems, she now trains for the New Parent Educator program for those seeking to teach new parent classes in a hospital, community, or private setting. She is the Senior Advisor to the CAPPA Lactation Educator program, and is focused on providing fun and interactive education, not just with great information, but also providing judgement-free classes empowering new parents with skills and confidence. You can find out more about everything she teaches at www.abcdoula.com

1. Categorize infant crying into low, normal, and excessive crying at 3 different points on the Crying Curve.

2. Define the roles of helpers and visitors in the early weeks of newborn family life, and compare and contrast the roles at different stages on the Crying Curve.

3. Draw and label the Crying Curve, identifying 3 different stages of development in an infant’s early newborn life.
U.S.A. Kimberly Bepler, IBCLC, CPD, CNPE, CLE
Abstract:

The Crying Curve is an evidence-based pattern of crying that begins at about 42 weeks of gestation (2 weeks of extrauterine life), peaks at 6-8 weeks of age, and sharply declines by 12-15 weeks. As many as 15 different studies have concluded that this pattern is common across infants of all cultures, gestational ages (based on a 40-week gestation), and parenting styles—and the applications are many in the early parenting world. How can parents use this pattern to help them navigate breastfeeding? How can they gather their support people, family or village to maximize positive relationships and get the support they crave? How can they utilize it to help assess their newborn and understand what is needed for their specific situation? How much crying is too much crying? Lactation consultants, postpartum doulas, and other postpartum professionals who possess this information are well positioned to help to educate parents on how to best approach their postpartum recovery period, as well as navigate the ups and downs of breastfeeding and early newborn sleep. This session will aim to explain and apply the Crying Curve in multiple ways to support and guide the newborn family.

1. List 5 of the 9 components of the Evolved Nest.
2. Asses how immature a neonate is compared to other animals.
3. List three benefits of positive touch.

Abstract:

Every animal has a developmental system or nest for its young that matches up with the maturational schedule of offspring. Humans have a nest too although many people don’t realize it. The human nest refers to the experiences and care that a child receives after birth and in the years that follow. Modern child raising has changed significantly from the nest of our ancestors with concerning results. Learn more about the epigenetic impact of the early nest and how early life experience influences wellbeing and sociomoral character in children and adults as well as societal culture. Delegates will gain an understanding of the essential components of the early nest (including touch, responsivity, breastfeeding, alloparents, positive social support, play, and soothing perinatal experiences) along with ways to empower parents to incorporate them into their infant’s care to create a foundation for lifelong health and well being.
