Ensuring that families are treated with respect, dignity, and kindness during some of life’s most vulnerable moments is my calling, my passion, my purpose, and my greatest joy. Midwifery captured my heart and my mind in 2010 and I have been attending births ever since. The journey has taken me to places I never dreamed, and I currently work in my home state of Kansas as well as internationally in midwifery education, research, and clinical practice. I am also an animal lover, a competitive athlete, and acro yoga enthusiast.

Abstract:

Midwives frequently consider pharmacologic therapy as separate, or least very different, from the other aspects of care we provide, but in this session, you will learn practical ways to bring the midwifery model of care to your use of pharmaceuticals in your practice. Including: How to deeply embed informed consent practices into your interactions with clients. Techniques for providing care that is gentle, holistic, and culturally appropriate. How to get more information when you need it. How to avoid making potentially deadly medication errors. How to appropriately store and organize your medications and reduce your on-call stress related to keeping your supplies and equipment fully stocked and in working order.

Dr. Cunningham is a wife and mother of three. She is a small animal veterinarian who currently performs locum work in general medicine and emergency. She graduated from Virginia Tech in 2000 with a degree in Animal and Poultry Science and from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine in 2005. She became interested in midwifery after the birth of her daughter. She has found many pearls of wisdom in the midwifery model of care that she has been able to translate to her practice of veterinary medicine.

Abstract:

Homebirths involve every family member the birthing person would like to have present. Pets are considered a member of the family and midwives need to know how to safely work with and around them. This presentation discusses how to use the relationship between the family and the pet during labor, recognize when the pet is becoming stressed by the events of labor, and develop strategies to reduce the risk of being bitten. This presentation looks at the newest research on The Human Animal Bond, The Ladder of Aggression, what we have discovered about oxytocin, mental health, and pet ownership during the Covid pandemic. Anyone who works around pets during a homebirth will benefit from an understanding of the signs of stress in dogs and will reduce their chances of being bitten while in the home.

For more information, go to http://microbiomecourses.com

Abstract:

MICROBIRTH filmmaker and author Toni Harman explains the microscopic events happening during physiological birth and breastfeeding. When a baby is born, the infant acquires bacteria from the mother’s birth canal, from contact with the mother’s fecal matter, from skin-to-skin contact, from other environmental exposures and from breast milk. The special sugars in human breast milk then feed the bacteria that have come from the mother to quickly colonise the baby’s gut, thus ensuring the optimal training of the infant immune system. However, C-section, antibiotics and formula feeding can impact these natural biological processes with ramifications for a child’s lifelong health.

Jessicca Moore, MSN, FNP-C holds a Masters of Science in Nursing from UCLA. She is a practicing NP and a filmmaker in Petaluma, CA. Beyond her clinical practice, she has always been interested in how we perceive risk and specifically how history, culture, and personal values inform our decision making. She became interested in filmmaking when the intersection of her personal and professional worlds gave her a story she had to tell. Her path to motherhood started with a high tech conception through IVF and culminated in a low tech birth at home. She tells the previously untold story of hospital birth providers who chose to give birth at home in her first film, "Why not Home?"

Abstract:

Have you ever wondered about home birth? What drives some families to pursue it, often at great personal expense and social risk? Mention home birth to a stranger on the street and you’ll likely get a reaction. In a time when we have more access to technology and healthcare than ever before, maternal mortality rates are rising. So too are C-section rates. At the same time there is a growing push by some to avoid the hospital altogether. Is this a misdirected are rising in the US as maternal mortality reaches Why would doctors who attend birth in hospitals choose to have their own babies at home? Join Jessicca Moore, filmmaker and nurse practitioner, on a compelling journey through maternity care in the United States. Told through the lens of doctors, nurses, and midwives, Why Not Home? examines the latest evidence on risks and rewards of different birth settings. The film presents a balanced and accessible view on the latest research, along with moving personal stories of medical practitioners faced with big decisions for their own growing families. Viewers are challenged to move beyond preconceived ideas, and to envision a fresh future for maternity care in America.
