Understanding Trauma in Childbirth
Presented by: Kellie Wicklund, MA, LPC, PMH-C
This webinar will illuminate the body of research from Cheryl Tatanto Beck, still internationally the leading mind in this area. We will explore what defines a "traumatic birth", which patients are more at risk psychologically for cascading events leading to one, how to equip them for mitigation if possible, and lastly, how to identify signs of trauma in the postpartum and connect to care.
Participants may earn 1.0 Lamaze Contact Hour and 1 hour of CNE (CABRN) for attending this webinar and completing the participant evaluation.
