Nurturing Mothers: A Webinar Series on Breastfeeding Support and Maternal Mental Health Part One

About the Webinar

In Part One of this series, experts from HRSA’s Division of Healthy Starts and Perinatal Services led a discussion touching on the National Maternal Mental Health Hotline and related resources for health center staff and patients. We also heard from Milwaukee’s Choice Neighborhood Initiative and their community-based program, Best Babies Zone, which works to ensure that babies born survive and thrive with the help of their engaged and healthy community.

These experts provided evidence-based interventions and resources for assessing maternal mental health needs, and the importance of healthy and engaged communities. Participants gained actionable insights into leveraging promising practices to support evidence-based care and improve mothers' and infants' outcomes.


Webinar Outcomes

These webinars were developed and conducted in partnership with the National Nurse-Led Care Consortium (NNCC) and the National Center for Health in Public Housing (NCHPH), aimed at addressing the critical postpartum gap in care and maternal mental health. There is a focus on equipping healthcare professionals with the tools and knowledge needed to support maternal mental health, breastfeeding and improve outcomes for maternal and child health, particularly in communities of color. By attending this series, healthcare professionals were equipped to play a pivotal role in bridging the gap in postpartum care and promoting maternal mental health equity in their communities.

Participants gained actionable insights into leveraging telehealth technologies to support evidence-based care and improve mothers' and infants' outcomes.
