Module 11: Implications & Inspiration

The Association for Prenatal and Perinatal Psychology and Health wants PPNE students to be aware of the implications that the technological and medical models of birth have had on the baby and newborn family. Other implications of difficulty in the early period are well documented in studies of stress during pregnancy and adverse early childhood experiences. Many professionals have discovered Pre and Perinatal Psychology and integrated it into their practices and jobs. This module features inspiring stories and interviews with PPN professionals, and lays the groundwork to be able to describe implications of early trauma.
