DWIHM/MI-AIMH - Supporting Families in Reclaiming their Peripartum Period Experience: Part 1- Birth Stories

This training is sponsored generously by the Detroit Wayne Integrated Health Network (DWHN). Therefore, only those individuals employed by a Detroit Wayne Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health program are allowed to register.

Training Description: This training will explore how birth through six professionals can support birthing people and their families to reclaim the experience of their child’s birth and how this has impacted them and their baby. There will be a particular focus on birth trauma and how to support the processing of this while holding a lens of marginalized populations and our history of medical treatment in the US.
