GOLD Perinatal , coming up live online this October, is a virtual event for nurses, midwives, lactation consultants and health care professionals working within the perinatal framework; sort of like a face-to-face conference (like CAPWHN OR AWHONN), but all online. We provide both live-in-real-time presentations from a wide variety of international experts and recordings of those presentations that your staff can watch at their own convenience at work, home, office, or even on the go.
This year we have an exciting line up of speakers who will be providing new insights into newborn gut function and the microbiome, how birth practices impact maternal and newborn physiology and behaviour, handling challenging situations such as the compromised obstetric patient, birth and breastfeeding of multiples, and coping with neonatal loss, as well as offering updates on things like breastfeeding and medications, hypertension in pregnancy, and cue based bottle feeding.
We are also excited to be offering a special add-on package that provides focused presentations from experts in the field of maternal mental health. Mental health is a growing concern these days and the add-on package presentations will allow delegates to immerse themselves in the latest research on Postpartum mood and anxiety disorders in order to better serve the mothers in their care.
We offer a variety of continuing education credits for Delegates (CMEs, Nursing CEUs, Midwifery CEUs & CERPs) and invite you to download our Table of Instructional Hours for more information. As of this writing, we are offering 20.25 hours of education for the main conference as well as two optional lectures packs – Mental Health (6 Hours) and Infant Suck (5 Hours).
