The Mother-Baby Program:

Shifting from Perinatal Mental Health to Two-Generation, Trauma-Healing

No video recording of this webinar was made at the request of the presenter.

This presentation includes an overview of mental health conditions during and after pregnancy, with specific focus on the impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES), and historical and generational trauma on maternal well-being, parental capacity, and attachment.  The Mother-Baby Program at Hennepin Country Medical Center is discussed as one innovative model of two-generation, trauma-healing.
