Webinar: Supporting Young Parents, an event with Lorena Murialdo of Planned Parenthood Toronto

October 18, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT


This 60 minute webinar will host Lorena Murialdo, from Planned Parenthood Toronto, who will lead a discussion about supporting young parents in today’s birth and parenting climate.

What will this webinar cover?

We took it to our DTC crowd to ask them what they would like to learn most about!
When we asked our members about what they would like to see covered, some of the answers included:

-What support young parents need in the early postpartum period
-What it feels like to become a parent when you (may or may not) still be being “parented”
-Resources best suited to youth in terms of things like continuing education, housing, age appropriate support, and community services,
-Mental health for young parents and how unplanned parenthood impacts labour, birth, and postpartum times

-Fostering healthy relationships with doulas and others in the absence of parental support

Lorena will address many of these and speak to what she feels is pertinent to her work and important for modern birth workers to be aware of.

This 60 minutes is sure to be packed full of thought-provoking suggestions and points for growing competencies when supporting young parents!

When:  Tuesday October 18th @ 1pm EST via Zoom
*recorded for playback (registrants only)/ closed-captioning available at all DTC events*

Cost:  $20 per participant
