Advocating For Your Own Healthcare at the 4th Trimester Arizona Conference

The fourth trimester, better known as the time after the baby comes home, can be a trying time. The 4th Trimester Arizona Conference, now in its third year, focuses on education, family support, and connection. 

 

Join us on March 7, 2020 at the i.d.e.a museum with our very own Urban Mommy Inc. founder, Monique Norington-Joseph. She will be presenting on how to use your voice and be an advocate for your own healthcare. Monique will share her personal maternal health crisis and the steps she used to navigate the healthcare system and the reasons why it is important to bring about substantial change and awareness to this healthcare crisis that disproportionately impacts women of color.

 

“The United States has the highest rates of maternal mortality in the developed world,” says Jennie Bever, executive director and founder of 4th Trimester Arizona. “Postpartum mood and anxiety disorders are at an all time high.  Much of this has to do with the lack of understanding and support that families receive postpartum.  We aim to change that here in our community, by bringing families together to share their experiences and recognize that they are not alone.”

 

There will be 12+ sessions at the conference, including Post Birth Warning Signs, Creating a Postpartum Game Plan, Support and Resources during Pregnancy, Postpartum and Beyond, Your Marriage After Baby, and more. 

 

Tickets are still available. In fact, using the promo code “UrbanMommy” at checkout will take $10 off your price.  The conference is (and always has been) free to WIC and AHCCCS participants.
