TWU’s Master of Science in Nursing Program Hosts, “Nursing Networking Café”
Dr. Sarah Liva (facilitator), “Exploring practice insights and the advancement of healthcare for new mothers and families”
Women and families have expressed desire for increased healthcare support following childbirth and across the perinatal transition, particularly around navigating physical and emotional recovery, breastfeeding, infant care, mental health, family planning/sexuality, and weight optimization. Recent work identifies the concept of perinatal vulnerability as complex, dynamic, and developing on a journey, with degree of vulnerability shapeshifting in relation to interactions with the health care system, situational stressors, and relationships. This networking café will explore health care providers’ perspectives of how current perinatal care interfaces with perinatal vulnerability and the health of new mothers and families. Providers across disciplines will reflect on their practice areas, the strengths of perinatal healthcare delivery, and where there may be opportunities to advance care.
Dr. Sarah Liva, a Registered Nurse, and an Assistant Professor at TWU School of Nursing, will facilitate a discussion with panelists. Her research focus is on maternal and family health promotion across the perinatal transition and inter-childbearing years.
