Kith Colorado and Evidence-Based Care

3 Feb

MomTime is pleased to announce our Spring  2017 Service Project:

vertical-square_no-background

Kathleen Krebs, MPH, of Kith Colorado gave an informative presentation last week on this exciting organization that helps prepare parents for the process of parenting, starting with the childbirth process.  Katie talked  about the importance of evidenced-based care in labor, inspiring mothers and families to be informed about birthing options.

Advocating for care and parenting practices based on scientific evidence improves outcomes and fosters a sense of empowerment for new mothers to speak up for their desires around early parenting.  Kith Colorado provides families with information and support to be an active participant in their care.  Katie’s slides described the benefits of prenatal care through postpartum care, for example:  the benefits of skin-to-skin bonding between mother and neonate, breastfeeding, and the importance for advocating for these when not offered.  A fun take-home message:  who wouldn’t want more support in the labor process?!

Kith Colorado strives to reach mothers and families without access to such information with a focus on families facing financial hardships and under-served populations.  Their mission is to provide an inclusive environment where moms can learn, connect and access support and information. Kith Colorado educates on childbirth, newborn care, breastfeeding support, baby and toddler sleep education, and positive discipline techniques.   To find out more, visit Kith Colorado.
