What are Educational Units that we have now added to our certification process (in replace of electives)?
In many professions, after obtaining their degree, a person is must do continuing education on an ongoing basis in order to maintain their status in that profession. While we do not require our students to do anything after certification, at The Healing Arts Learning Organization we value the need for continuing education. We value it so much that we have used elements of it and incorporated it into our certification process as - EDUCATIONAL UNITS! An Educational Unit is a "point" you will obtain by attending other trainings that will help grow your birth business. One Educational Unit is granted for every two hours of additional learning you participate in. (The total number of educational units required for certification can be found on the Doula Training page. A student can use a maximum of 6 educational units per topic to count toward certification.)
Use this opportunity to help complete your education in areas you feel you need more knowledge, obtain training in areas that will help provide additional income streams that compliment your birth business or to gain knowledge in new topics of interest that will make you a well-rounded doula after certification. Don't have previous business experience? Didn't breastfeed yourself? This requirement is a great chance to take courses that will not only customize your training to your unique needs, but also qualify toward your certification! Search your area to find what might be available, as this will be a great opportunity to make connections in the community.
Let's use this broadcast to brainstorm some ideas of what you can use as an Educational Unit!

Katrina Pavlik (Board Chair), founder of Breastfeed Chicago, M.Ed., postpartum doula, certified lactation specialist. “My dream for Chicago is that it will become the most breastfeeding-friendly city in the country. Not only will new moms get the help and support they need from their health care providers, but they will benefit from an extensive breastfeeding-support network. Moms will be seen breastfeeding their children anywhere, anytime… and it will be considered a normal, natural way of feeding our children.”
In 2011, Katrina Pavlik created a closed Facebook group to invite
people to start a conversation about breastfeeding in Chicago. Within six
hours, it had grown to 400 people. "I saw a need for a community that
could discuss how to make Chicago more breastfeeding friendly. From the Facebook group, we expanded and added the Breastfeed, Chicago! blog and resource list.

This week on Urban Therapy with SUN we're gonna talk about Postpartum Depression in women as well as men.Postpartum depression is is the depressive state that a person may suffer from after a the birth of a child. It can be a very serious condition because it can hamper the development of a child by a parent. A parent can become overwhelmed with sadness and become neglectful of their parental duties. They can become neglectful of feeding, holding, loving, consoling, teaching, talking to, reading to, changing diapers, cleaning and nurturing a child in their depression. At it's worst a parent can even become physically or emotionally abusive to a child if they go untreated and get professional help. Some cases result in death.
Men suffer from postpartum depression as well which is something that goes unnoticed by many people. The differences between men and women with postpartum depression is that with men it's not caused by hormonal changes. There may be external factors at play that may be the cause. Fathers may not be as playful as they would normally be and may try to compensate for their depression by overindulging food or alcohol or drugs or gambling etc. They may withdraw fro familial duties in the home and my withdraw.
Postpartum depression is very serious. Please check out this show even if you don't have children. The welfare and safety of a child can depend on your knowledge.
There is a foul smelling odor emitting in the air. Medolac has started an initiative to increase breastfeeding rates in the African American community of Detroit. Medolac will be offering one dollar per ounce of breast milk to African American women, in turn she will be selling milk to hospitals for seven dollars an ounce. Yes, you read that right. Elena Medo, the CEO of Medolac, will be selling milk to various hospitals and unidentified institutions for a six hundred percent mark-up!
Is Elena Medo implying that money is the only thing motivating African American women to care for their children properly?
How does offering to purchase breast milk from African American mothers compare to slavery? Slavery is a legal or economic system under which people are treated as property. Knowing that, the essence of slavery is using people as property, exploiting a group because of their race, economic status or religion for financial gain. Does that ring a bell for you? Medolac is proposing to collect African American women’s milk from low income areas of Detroit, and sell it to hospitals for seven dollars. That’s a six hundred percent profit made off the backs (or breast in this case) of African American mothers! In the past, coercion, terroristic threats, beatings and lynchings, that resulted in death, were used to ensure that a slave did what they were told. Medolac is asserting that; to ensure that we as African American mothers are able to stay home with our children longer and to ensure our preterm children have a fighting chance, all we need to do is sell them our milk. Is the stench starting to smell familiar to you now?
Do you know that 1 in 8 women suffer from postpartum depression (PPD), according to Postpartum Support International (PSI)?
"Maternal illness is not new. It was recognized as early as the fifth century B.C., when Hippocrates proposed that fluid from the uterus could flow to the head after childbirth and cause delirium. In the Middle Ages, mothers with such symptoms were viewed as witches or victims of witchcraft. " Belluck, P. (2014, June 15). Thinking of Ways to Harm Her. The New York Times. Retrieved from http://www.nytimes.com
We've come a long way in understanding postpartum depression but we still need to work on de-stigmatizing the illness, and raise awareness on what PPD is, and most importantly, we need to implement successful tools to identify women mostly vulnerable to PPD, so treatment can start as soon as possible.
Our guest today is Carly Snyder, M.D. , a psychiatrist in New York City with a focus and expertise in Reproductive Psychiatry.
