Safe Passage: New Directions in Protecting, Promoting, and Supporting Maternal-Infant Safety

There are a number of current trends designed to promote safety for mothers and infants. These trends include presence of a doula during labor and skin-to-skin contact during the first few hours after birth. However, these recommendations should come with the safety recommendations. This conference focuses on new findings on maternal and infant safety during labor, birth, and postpartum, and the process of metabolic adaptation as the newborn transitions from womb to world. Speakers will focus on the role of doulas during labor, maternal mortality, safety considerations in skin-to-skin contact, and safe infant sleep.

This is a two-day conference preceded by a one-day pre-conference workshop.
