Participants will be able to:

  • Apply the seven principles of powerful prenatal relationships to create value, empowerment and positive change in their own and their client’s lives.
  • Implement Trauma Informed Care from the first contact. 
  • Create an effective schema of topics to use at prenatal visits for a variety of client types. 
  • Determine best approaches to involving partners in their own prenatal relationship with the doula, nurse, or family visitor.
  • Characterize and reinforce that the doula's primary role of support of their clients is the most valuable and helpful; rather than being a problem solver, fixer or educator.

  • Locate areas to increase opportunities and value for clients with lower effort. 
  • Explore how their own implicit bias gets in the way of relating authentically to clients and effective practiced strategies for addressing one's biases.

  • Meet client needs more effectively with our bonus tools for virtual visits and postpartum wellness visits!
