Presentation Details

Essential Education for New and Expecting Mothers

Authors: Talana Armstrong, Janelle Bancroft, Emily Fiveash, and Hannah Gearhart 

Faculty Supervisor: Nicole Mansano, DNP, RN, CNM, CNE

Community Partner: Skylark


Skylark offers an earn as you learn program for clients to encourage participation in the educational courses and counseling services they offer. We decided this would be the best way to reach the most clients. A class was set up for us to teach a group of new and expecting mothers about post-partum depression, basic newborn care, SIDS, and proper newborn nutrition. The topics were chosen after evaluation of Skylark’s curriculum did not cover these topics.
