CNMA Supports the Dignity in Pregnancy and Childbirth e-Training

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.
