SESSIONS


Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and their Impact on the Perinatal Experience and the Perinatal Experiences Impact on ACEs

Colleen  Weeks LCCE, FACCE, CLE, CSE, RTS

Every mother we serve has a story and that story impacts her pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding and mothering experience psycho-socially and physically. Childhood abuse and neglect leaves lifelong scars, while love and support creates resilience. We have a powerful opportunity to influence resilience in the mother and, in turn the newborn which will follow them throughout life. This is a powerful “feel good” presentation based in science!
