Have you purchased your registration for INA’s 2019 Annual Conference? In addition to the 27 educational workshops to choose from, you also have the chance to come a little early and gain even more knowledge through our Thursday afternoon Extended Workshops. Today we are highlighting our offering for the Newborn Care Specialists Track, Nanny Track and Agency Training.
Newborn Care Specialists Track – Trauma-informed Care for Postpartum Families will be taught by Alexis Edwards from Birth 360 & Courtney Butts from Soulfully Rooted Birth. This training will provide guidance and tools to perinatal professionals on how to better serve survivor clients through their pregnancy and postpartum. It will explore the various types of trauma that can impact maternal health including; intimate partner violence, sexual trauma, race-based trauma, birth trauma, and overall enhance your ability to serve women experiencing current or past abuse.
We asked Alexis what she hopes attendees get from this workshop and she told us, “Trauma changes the way we think, act and percieve the world around us. This training will explore and expand participant’s knowledge around various types of trauma and how trauma impacts not only the body and brain but also baby’s development and long-term health. Participants will leave equipped with information and tools on how to serve women experiencing current or past abuse, including how to best support a family healing from a traumatic birth or postpartum experience.”
