Impact of Domestic Violence on Healthy Births

I love when I find offerings that I don’t frequently see. The Oregon Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence has a 2-part series coming up on DV and pregnancy, the first of which is Impact of Domestic Violence on Healthy Births. The session will be held September 13th at 10am PT. Click through for details:

From the site:

The goal of the webinar is to demonstrate how domestic violence can impact the outcome of a healthy birth. Using PowerPoint and lecture, presenter Shafia Monroe will cover the perinatal needs of pregnant women, the role of prenatal care for better birth outcomes in the DV populations, the underlying causes of infant mortality, and supporting the pregnant woman of intimate partner violence (IPV). Participants will be able to list the major causes of infant mortality, list the effects of IPV on birth outcomes, and understand how to service the special needs of pregnant women who are experiencing domestic violence.

The 2nd session will be held September 27th:  Improving Health Outcomes of Pregnancy: Partnerships with Doulas and Advocates.
