Birth safety can come in many forms like making sure the mother or birthgiver is fully aware of what is going on during their labor to more larger scale issues like medical racism. Both can affect the safety and birth outcomes of both parent and baby.
Along with Kaprice Welsh (CNM, MSN, MPH, Clinical Liaison, Georgia OBGYN Society) and Yasmin Tyler-Hill (MD, FAAP, Chief of Pediatrics, Morehouse School of Medicine), our very own guest blog writer, Paige Rohe, is part of the panel of speakers for this webinar to shed light on her knowledge of birth injury. Read her story Becoming a Birth Safety Advocate: Paige Rohe and our blog Do No Harm: Birth Safety to prepare for a safe and healthy birth.
