The First 1,000 Days: Advocate and Engage
Wednesday May 1, 2019
1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. Eastern
The First 1,000 Days is an umbrella term used by government, philanthropy and organizations to document the critical window of brain development, lifelong health and relationships that occur within the first 1,000 days (conception to age 2). The First 1,000 Days is posited by politicians and public media outlets moving health, early learning and community development out of silos into integrated sustainable, systems with an emphasis on equity. Thus, it is imperative to position Lamaze educators to partner with public health programs, early childhood initiatives and community health priorities that bridge together Lamaze's unique role in the first 1,000 days.
Come learn about federal, state and local ways to scale up Lamaze in your region and craft partnerships for capacity building. Lamaze educators have a unique and essential role in the first 1,000 days, including capacity building for more multilingual childbirth educators and economists and scaling up the care practices for a safe and healthy birth. If Lamaze is left out of the first 1,000 days dialogue and funding, we lose the opportunity to partner with expectant parents and policy makers during this critical window of time.
Presenter: Jill Wodnick, M.A., LCCE, is a national speaker and facilitates Lamaze prenatal workshops for expectant parents at Montclair State University. Jill continues to be invited to give testimony on maternal health to NJ Senate hearings and committee meetings and to write op/eds for regional media outlets on maternal health, weaving in the critical role of respectful, family-centered maternity care. Prior to MSU, Jill led a Community Doula Program in Hudson County, NJ and was the Expert Doula for Pregnancy Magazine. She has been part of the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women's Global Prenatal Initiative as well as on local and statewide programs for improving maternity care, eliminating racial disparities and the intersection of early childhood well-being through birth.
