Instructor: Nicole Warren, CNM, MPH, Ph.D.

Approved for 6 CEUs for CNMs

Amidst the refugee current crisis, more pregnant women from parts of the world where FGM/C is practiced are coming to America. Therefore, it is important for U.S. maternity and mental health providers to understand culturally-appropriate ways to provide care to these pregnant women who were circumcised as girls, and to promote an evidence-based, trauma-informed and culturally sensitive approach for birthing professionals to create a safe space for disclosure, service provision, and referrals.

We will also hear from a Nigerian woman who was cut as a child. She will speak candidly about her experience as a patient receiving OB/GYN care and mental health support. She will also share her experiences and insight as a midwife and nurse caring for women who have FGM/C.

This video was approved by The American College of Nurse-Midwives for 6 CEUs. If you are a CNM who wants these CEUs, please send us an email with your name and license number and we will send you your certificate reflecting these contact hours. You must watch the entire 2-hour video to get the CEUs.
