Creating Safety

A Somatics Course for Prenatal and Perinatal Educators

APPPAH has made a commitment to promote ways for prenatal and perinatal educators and professionals to create safety in their work. Our 2018-2019 Online Somatics Course is Creating Safety: Understanding Early Trauma Resolution and Resiliency. Click here to discover more.

"The mothers I work with are considered at risk and under-served. Most do not have support, live at or below the poverty level, are often homeless or living in transitional housing. Pregnancy, childbirth and early parenting are often stressful times in their life. I learned so much in your Birth Psychology course regarding the effects of mother's stress on the baby and how to support young mothers. I now work very hard concentrating on teaching stress reduction techniques and helping mothers engage and attach to their unborn and newborn baby. I am forever changed as a professional and can't adequately express the gratitude I feel having received a scholarship to help women and families."

The primary benefit of APPPAH membership is the knowledge that you are supporting the educational efforts of APPPAH in disseminating vital information about the importance of the first nine months of life. You will become part of a community dedicated to improving life for babies and families.
