Birth Work X Perinatal Mental Health

Birth workers are a gift. They are often the first ones in and the last ones out of a brand new family's home. This may mean that they are the first to spot something concerning -- and within this context, this would not be the first time that a birthworker literally saves the life of a new parent. After working in the doula field for 10 years, I feel deeply committed to expanding the knowledge and awareness that birth workers have and hold as it relates to perinatal mental health. That honed in birth worker instinct, that first sign of trouble and the right care may mean the difference between night and day for a new family.
