Confidently support your clients through a neonatal resuscitation event

“Supporting Neonatal Resuscitation” helps doulas understand procedures of neonatal resuscitation and the NICU so they can confidently support their clients through unforeseen or complex birth outcomes. This course operates from within the boundaries of a doula’s scope of practice to offer skills to understand the environment and empathize with their clients as well as care for themselves during and after critical incidents. The course is led by Jill Colpitts, an experienced birth doula in the Vancouver, BC area. Michelle Peltier, a birth and postpartum doula and the Patient and Family Engagement Advisor for the Neonatal Program at BC Women’s Hospital and Health Centre is also interviewed throughout the course. She is also a NICU parent of a baby born at 29 weeks. She offers insight into the experience of parents in the NICU and the challenges that they experience both at the hospital and the transition home.
