Start Early is offering the learning series free of charge. The series runs May – July and is open to anyone who provides care and service to birthing people and new families, with particular emphasis on home visitors, home visiting supervisors, birth justice advocates, doulas, and health care providers. Expert panelists will bring diverse perspectives and backgrounds to each topic, centering the voices of birthing people and their families. The second webinar will focus on the unique mental health challenges that birthing people experience, including birth trauma, hormonal changes, and stressors due to poverty and stigma. Speakers will share strategies for shifting mental mindsets, providing culturally competent care, and advocating for mental wellness for families and the people who serve them.
