Coping with the Physical and Emotional Separation for the Birthing Person and Baby during Incarceration

April 19, 2022

Lanetta Garner, a Peer Support Specialist, discusses her experiences working at Human Solutions Women’s Shelters, and Alicia Roach, an experienced doula from Oregon. Jessica Katz (The Family Preservation Project), Lesley Mondeaux (Northwest Mothers Milk Bank), and Carrie Cohen (Portland State University) share their work in supporting families and children of incarcerated mothers.

This is the third webinar of a four-part webinar series focused on “Support through Separation: Coping with Physical and Emotional Separation.” This series aims to provide a trauma-informed, welcoming, inclusive, and healing experience, especially for those with lived experience.
