We offer virtual and in-person Advocate Workshops.
Each workshop is 2-hours long and for up to 50 people at a time.
PPCM may not be as rare as we think—but it doesn't have to be a death sentence. The CDC has named “missed or delayed diagnosis” as a key factor behind maternal deaths, and cardiologists and OB-GYNs admit that PPCM is often misdiagnosed or ignored.
Founder, Brianna Henderson (accompanied by FNP) educates and informs healthcare professionals/birth workers from a PPCM survivor/ advocate personal experience. Brianna is a National Published Author, Public Speaker, Certified Patient Family Partner, Birth Doula, Patient Advocate, and Grant Writer who partners and collaborates with many other maternal health organizations.
PPCM is one of the leading causes of maternal mortality in the U.S. Since it is considered rare, doctors aren’t watching for it, which ironically may mean the actual number of cases is higher than we know. According to a report from the California Pregnancy-Associated Mortality Review Committee, more than 50 percent of PPCM fatalities in the state between 2002-2007 were only diagnosed through autopsy records, and so not recorded as an official cause of death.
A simple blood test could save new mothers and this is what the medical field should know. PPCM is now being mistaken for Covid-19 and pneumonia in some pregnant women nationwide.
Attendees will leave educated and aware of PPCM; learning the signs that may be present in women with this illness. Email email@example.com to schedule a PPCM Workshop.
Brianna has shared her story and collaborated with NBC News, Baylor Scott & White, The Press Association in London, American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Texas Department of Health & Human Services, and many other affiliated organizations.
It was a pleasure meeting and educating these wonderful midwives at Dallas Birth. Our workshop enhances cooperatively working together, sharing responsibility for problem-solving, and making decisions to formulate and increase PPCM awareness for patient care.
