Course description

The Preconception Care Module consists of carefully selected learning materials to guide you in providing the highest quality, midwifery model preconception care. This self-guided course includes current research and professional guidelines, as well as a 2 hour webinar that describes how the reproductive system functions within the context of overall health and daily lifestyle habits. A video describing the Cultural Humility approach will support your work with clients across various backgrounds. Course assignments are designed to bring together full synthesis of the information. You will create a practice guideline for preconception care, provide client education regarding lab tests, and deepen your knowledge about two emerging issues relevant to preconception care: Zika virus and hypovitaminosis D. A one-on-one teaching session with the instructor, Kristin Kali LM CPM, will provide feedback on your completed assignments and give you an opportunity to ask questions about the topics presented in the module.
