Sharon.pngIncreasing Advocacy Skills For Your Students

Monday, October 23 | 8:00 am - 11:00 am
Presented by: Sharon Muza, CD(DONA), BDT(DONA), LCCE, FACCE

Self-determination and self-advocacy skills are often difficult for expectant families to acquire, especially during the short nine months of pregnancy. Childbirth educators can and should include activities in their classes that provide opportunities to increase their confidence in asking for information from health care providers and confidently making decisions during pregnancy, labor and birth and early parenting.

During this hands-on workshop, attendees will explore interactive and engaging childbirth education class activities that help develop these self-advocacy skills in parents so they are better able to advocate for themselves and their babies during the childbearing year.

Read more from Sharon Muza about why self-advocacy is important for families.
