How can a professional collaboration between midwifery and birth psychology improve maternal child health?
Based on the inspirational collaboration between Dr. Ray Castellino and midwife, Mary Jackson, and their ground breaking work, the presenter was inspired to seek and develop a collaborative relationship with a birth psychologist in my community. Together, we are developing a comprehensive package of services designed to improve birth outcomes and enhance the pre and perinatal experience for our clients. Work continues with Dr. Castellino and Mary Jackson, as we refine our practice. This presentation will chronicle the history of our journey, including case studies of two clients. Attendants will leave with a “HOW TO” list for duplicating our collaboration. It is the presenter’s goal to inspire collaboration between birth psychology and birth workers.
