Did you know that Baby Blues Connection offers educational talks to local area groups and providers? We do! Want to learn more? Read on.
We’ve always offered two types of presentations: one that offers basic information and others that are clinically oriented. Our informational presentations are general, get-to-know BBC and what we do presentations. They are given by one of our peer support volunteers or a local clinician. They provide basic information about postpartum depression and details about the vital services BBC has to offer. Our clinical presentations have been developed by local clinicians to address pregnancy and postpartum mental health more in depth.
Recently, BBC’s Outreach and Education Committee has updated our educational presentations and how we coordinate them. In response to audience and speaker feedback, our informational presentation has been expanded to include explanations about volunteer training and a few statistics about the services BBC provides to families.
The clinical presentations continue to provide more in-depth information about pregnancy and postpartum mental health, but can also be targeted to a range of audiences from home visiting organizations to doula trainees to a medical or mental health practices. Our great local clinician speakers are experienced in maternal mental health and can also provide insight into attachment implications, NICU and trauma in the postpartum period, clinical recommendations, and information about various population experiences (fathers, LGBTQ, families of color) with pregnancy and postpartum adjustment.
We are excited about these changes and look forward to speaking to your group! If you are interested in requesting a speaking event, you can send an email to outreach@ baby blues connection dot org or click on this link to schedule one today:
