Description: You are warmly invited to the next Common Ground meeting and potluck on Tuesday, March 31st from 6:00 to 9:00 pm at the Central Lutheran Church in NE Portland. This time around we will be talking about postpartum care in home, birth center, and hospital-based care. We will begin with a panel discussion of postpartum care in different settings with Heather Hack-Sullivan, LDM, CPM (home birth midwife), Lillian Young, CNM (Providence St. Vincent Postpartum Service), and Lauren Rose, MD (Director of Newborn Nurseries for Legacy Health System). After the panel we will have small group and large group discussion on best practices in postpartum care and systemic change to improve postpartum care in each setting. As always, we will have time to socialize before and after the presentation and discussion. Don’t forget to bring a potluck dish and come on time.

Common Ground is a time for all midwives to come together to get to know one another and begin to identify our common values and goals for midwifery care in Oregon. Direct-Entry Midwives, Certified-Nurse Midwives, Naturopathic Midwives, and student midwives are all welcome. Together we can work towards our vision for the future of motherbaby care in Oregon.
