Abstract:

It’s a wonderful feeling when you’re able to support a family through birth in a way that leaves them feeling empowered as they start their journey into parenthood. Those moments are heartwarming and we celebrate those achievements for both our clients and ourselves. What doesn’t get talked about very often however, is the struggles that go alongside those triumphs. The caregiver burnout, compassion fatigue, overwhelm, guilt, and feelings of failure that can derail our confidence in ourselves as care providers. This panel digs deep into the realities of working as a midwife, examining both the struggles and possible solutions.

Learning Objectives:

1. Describe 3 struggles commonly faced by midwives when serving families
2. Explain how unadressed struggles faced by midwives can negatively impact the families they serve
