Trainings for Providers
Navigating the tender terrain of motherhood
It takes skill, understanding and grace on the part of the clinician to provide structure and scaffolding to a new, expecting and/or grieving mama.
With this in mind, Mobile Mama provides ongoing training and consultation for students, providers and organizations who work with women during the perinatal period. This includes counselors, social workers, lactation providers, OB/GYN, midwives and doulas, home visiting nurses as well as larger health organizations. Mobile Mama provides:
Group consultation and one-on-one consultation on matters related to perinatal mental health.
Advanced Perinatal Mental Health Training & Consultation
Offered in partnership with Perinatal Support Washington.
The Mobile Mama Method Training
Training for providers focused on how to use the simple, accessible and effective strategies that Michelle has developed over the decade of working with new mamas.
Mindfulness and CBT in the Perinatal Period
An overview of experiential tools and skills to triage and work with parents during this time.
When was the last time you went to a training that inspired & challenged you?
"I have not learned so much from a training in many years!"
"I have learned so much about how to support women in this post and prenatal period and also appreciated the outside reading resources, practical application as well as consultation."
"This was entirely new subject matter for me and I feel this training helped me understand women's perinatal mental health. I appreciated the simple ways we can encourage women to get their basic needs met, and how to normalize many of the things that women are feeling. I think it also helped me to identify known risk factors to monitor."
"This training was so valuable, our group facilitators experience & education was particularly helpful, Michelle did a great job & I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to learn from her. Thank you!!"
"Thanks for all the support. I have significantly expanded my practice and now see over half my caseload in perinatal mental health. I was a recipient of the scholarship and would not have been able to afford the group otherwise. With my practice now seeing about 20 women/mamas, I am so grateful to have been able to learn and connect and resource! Thank you, thank you!!!!"
"I've become more confident in my ability to identify and discuss PMADs beyond depression (which gets most of the focus in perinatal education and society in general). I've gained useful tools to use with clients. I have and will highly recommend this training for anyone working with people in the childbearing cycle. THANK YOU!!"
"I just wanted to say thank you for such an excellent training session this morning. I especially appreciate the fact that you're offering us lots of concrete tools/activities to do with clients. I really love experiential and hands-on methods, and am hungry to expand my toolbox!"
