CNMA Supports the Dignity in Pregnancy and Childbirth e-Training

It’s a startling fact that, in 2021, Black birthing women are four to six times as likely to die from pregnancy and birth-related causes as other racial and ethnic groups. To help perinatal providers learn more about the implicit biases that are among the key causes of this disparity, CNMA supports using the Dignity in Pregnancy and Childbirth e-training course. This one-hour, no-cost course – funded by the California Health Care Foundation – also meets the requirements of Senate Bill 464, which mandates that all perinatal providers in California take an evidence-based implicit bias training. Register for the course and learn more here.
