Shhh - I Didn't Enjoy Pregnancy, Birth, or Feel Postpartum Bliss


Input from stakeholders such as registered nurses, managers, and experts in the field have shown that maternal mental health needs and perinatal homelessness are under-detected and under-diagnosed, negatively impacting maternal morbidity and mortality. Through this course, registered nurses will gain the knowledge necessary to develop a systematic screening and referring process that will detect mental health needs and housing insecurity during the perinatal period. An overview of perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, discussion of childbirth trauma, PTSD, homelessness, and local and national community resources will be discussed in this course.
