LamazeLive 2018: Equity in Childbirth During the Age of Chaos, Privilege, and Bravery

Since the inception of our nation, inequities in health have been persistent, avoidable threats to our communities – to women, mothers, and babies. Those inequities reflect systemic flaws and abnormalities in the economic, social, and moral fabric of our country – rooted in systems of privilege and oppression. To end those threats to our society and to childbirth, we need to find new solutions to old problems. That requires leaders across all sectors, disciplines, and in communities to challenge widely accepted language and sometimes, deeply held beliefs—particularly regarding how we choose to value women based on racial, ethnic, and class identities. It requires us to challenge ourselves and the role we play in the production of the public’s health; infant and maternal mortality; healthcare; and the childbirth experience. It starts by making our systems and institutions equitable, diverse, and inclusive through policies, programs, and practices. Ultimately, it requires each of us to experience the discomfort of change and to be brave enough to do that willingly—to seek it. We have a choice. We can stay as we are and perpetuate inequitable and at times failing childbirth experiences that lead to illness, trauma, and at times early death or we can embrace equity and produce health – making childbirth the successful, positive, and healthy experience every woman deserves. You decide.

Participants may earn 1 Lamaze Contact Hour and 1 Contact Hour of CABRN.
