Birth has evolved over millennia to support the continuation of the species. In this talk we'll explore how the physiology of birth can contribute to reciprocal social connection, development of a dynamic intestinal biome, and nurturing parenting. These factors can affect short and long term physical and social health, and contribute to resilience in the face of disease, conflict, and trauma. Birth and perinatal professionals are uniquely positioned to support families during pregnancy and birth in ways that can have a positive effect on future parenting, child health, and lifelong health outcomes. We'll address how to build a culture of caring and implement current evidence and best practice recommendations using quality improvement methodology.

Learning Objectives:

Objective 1:Objective 1: Identify core aspects of physiologic birth that can contribute to healthy physical and social growth and development;

Objective 2: Describe current evidence, recommendations, and tools to support physiologic birth practices;

Objective 3: List quality improvement measures and processes that can be used to implement the practice of physiologic birth.
