Maternal Child Health (MCH) Specialist Training with Jennie Joseph, LM, CPM, Director/CEO Commonsense Childbirth



MCH is a training and certification program that equips health navigators, community health workers,outreach personnel, care coordinators, home visitors, doulas, childbirth educators, lactation educators, nurses, midwives, and physicians to understand their local and regional resources. This training provides the ways to negotiate and navigate through the systems that provide perinatal health care for women and babies who are at particular risk for poor outcomes. The MCH specialist training and certification can be achieved in a one-day (8 hour) educational session and covers the various angles that are pertinent to breaking down and understanding the interrelatedness of health care systems and how to help vulnerable pregnant and parenting women negotiate and navigate those systems. The Perinatal Toolkit has been developed by Jennie Joseph, using The JJ Way®, her maternal child health care system which promotes the four tenets of access, connections, knowledge and empowerment to decrease health disparities, improve birth outcomes, and reduce costs.
