Obstetric Violence: What It Is and What Community Can Do About It – Community Monthly

You are purchasing monthly access to the Birth Monopoly Community, including our signature Know Your Rights course, bi-monthly community calls, and the first course in obstetric violence available online in the U.S.:

Created by Cristen Pascucci, founder of Birth Monopoly and an expert on obstetric violence, the course is self-paced and takes a trauma-aware approach.

Modules include:

  • Prep Work on working with triggers (with Nekole Shapiro, founder of Holistic Peer Counseling)
  • A Working Definition of Obstetric Violence (with various birth and healthcare professionals)
  • The State of the Science on Obstetric Violence (with Lorraine Garcia, MA, MSN, WHNP-BC, CNM, and PhD candidate)
  • Obstetric Violence and the Principles of Advocacy (with Sabia Wade, author and founder of Birthing Advocacy Doula Trainings)
  • Trauma Informed Care as Preventative of Obstetric Violence (with Mandy Irby, BSN, RNC-OB, C-EFM, LCCE, founder of The Trauma Informed Birth Nurse)

Additional modules coming in February address obstetric violence as a public health issue and a reproductive rights issue, and from a systems change perspective.

You will also have access to updates and any newer versions of the course published within the three-year time period.
