breakout session 2 | From "Free Birth" to "Too Posh to Push": How the patriarchy has influenced medical interventions in childbirth
DR. SARAH LEA,  Maternity Physician, Co-Founder She Found Motherhood
DR. ALICIA POWER, Maternity Physician, Co-Founder She Found Motherhood

We'll start by reviewing the complex history of medical interventions in childbirth; from its feminist beginnings to its appropriation by western medicine. We will then have a workshop session exploring our beliefs around interventions in childbirth. You'll leave this breakout session with an understanding of what medical interventions are, when they are recommended and why and how to support your clients about informed decision making in the context of medical interventions in childbirth.

breakout session 3 | Self Awareness & Sacred Teachings


Self awareness is who we are, our personalities and individuality. It is to know oneself through actions, thoughts, emotions and what to strive for in life. Developing self awareness is important to know and to evaluate personal self growth and then make changes, if need be. I ask you "What is important to you?" "What does your heart tell you?"

The Sacred Teachings encompass all of who we are and how we live our lives and it is up to the individual to know what they are. Many of us already know the Sacred Teachings intuitively, demonstrated in our actions and behaviour.

breakout session 1 | Helping Partners and Support People to be the Best Birth Support They Can Be
Erin Fulton, RN, BScN, IBCLC, MSN

A supportive childbirth companion has been found to improve the whole birth experience.  Birthing people who receive good emotional and physical support during labour tend to have shorter labours, improved pain control and less need for medical interventions.  This session focuses on the emotional support, reassurance and respect that you can help partners and support persons to provide to birthing people during their birth experience. You will be provided with tools to teach and encourage partners and support people to take on these roles in the best way they can.   At the end of the session, you will understand how to help partners and support people to provide empathy, respect, encouragement as well as hands on techniques and tools to support and care for people throughout their labour and birth.

breakout session 2 | The Next Generation of CPNP
Nicole Anthony, M.P.A., Senior Program Officer and BC Lead CAPC/CPNP, Public Health Agency of Canada, Western Region

The Canada Prenatal Nutrition Program (CPNP) is celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2025. CPNP improves maternal and child health outcomes. A generation’s worth of reports, anecdotes, lived experiences and testimonials shows that.

And yet, CPNP is not well-known amongst the broader Canadian population and the public health conversation often focuses on improving the medical system or the education system. Funding levels have remained the same for almost as long as the program has existed and it can be difficult to gain and retain the attention and willingness of leadership to make real change.

We know what the problems are and what to do about them, but how do we do it? We also know that problems cannot be solved with the same mindset that created them. These complex problems persist because CPNP is still funded, implemented and evaluated as a program. But CPNP is actually a system of programs and relationships.

This session looks at CPNP as a grassroots system that is innovative and adaptive world class. We will discuss:

  • How do we sustain and steward CPNP through difficult times?
  • How do we share information and insights in real time?
  • How do we coordinate and make decisions at local and regional levels?
  • How do we reach leaders, funders and the public with our stories and understandings?
  • How do we design the next generation of CPNP together?

breakout session 3 | The Spirit of Motivational Interviewing For Direct Health Care Providers
Stacey Boon, MCC, CCP, COC, MET, MINT Member

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a strengths-based approach to conversations that helps draw out people’s own motivation and commitment to change in an atmosphere of compassion, acceptance, and partnership. The approach involves guiding and supporting a person through the process of sorting through mixed feelings about change. This foundational Motivational Interviewing (MI) skills training focuses on building an understanding of the spirit of MI and developing core skills, including using OARS (open-ended questions, affirmations, reflections, and summaries), responding to the way people talk about change, and giving information and advice in a way that is in keeping with the spirit of MI. This session is an excellent introduction to MI, or an excellent refresher and for those who have some prior knowledge and experience with MI.

Lindsay Wolfson, MPH - Research Manager, Centre of Excellence for Women's Health; Researcher, Canada FASD Research Network

Research about alcohol and pregnancy and preventing Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) is advancing across the globe. In Canada, a Four-Part Model of FASD Prevention has been developed and used that describes a continuum of multi-sectoral efforts, including awareness campaigns, safe and respectful conversations around pregnancy and alcohol use, and wraparound support services that offer access to holistic supports on alcohol and other health and social concerns. In this presentation, Nancy and Lindsay will provide an update on the promising state of the evidence on FASD prevention including the prevalence and influences on alcohol use during pregnancy, interventions at each of the four levels of the Four-Part Model, as well as systemic, destigmatizing, and ethical considerations. They will also share a number of evidence-based tools for practice that support women and gender diverse people who use alcohol and other substances in the preconception and pregnancy periods.

Elder Glida Morgan, 
Tla'amin First Nation, Provincial Perinatal Substance Use Program, BC Women’s Hospital + Health Centre, PHSA


Led by BC Women’s Hospital + Health Centre (PHSA), the Provincial Perinatal Substance Use Program was developed in response to the need for specialized supports for pregnant and parenting people using substances against the backdrop of a unregulated and toxic drug poisoning crisis. The Program has been providing centralized leadership to transform perinatal substance use services to improve the experiences of women and people affected by substance use across the province, as well as the experiences of their families. The Program has been on an Indigenous Cultural Safety Journey that recognizes the pervasiveness and impacts of systemic racism, past and current gendered colonial violence and intergenerational trauma related to birth, mothering and negative health care experiences on Indigenous women, children and families. Elders have been central to this journey with their wisdom, teachings and ceremony guiding the Program and the development of an Elders Visioning Toolkit for Perinatal Substance Use. The Elders Visioning Toolkit describes how to engage and support Elders in a culturally safe way and highlights teachings from twelve Elders across the province.

Learning Objectives:

  • Highlight Elders’ diverse knowledge, approaches and practices from across BC about how they support Indigenous women, children and families
  • Present the process and learnings for the development of the Elders
  • Visioning Perinatal Substance Use Toolkit
  • Provide guidance and direction to health care providers on how Elders want and need to be engaged into community and health care services as a standard of practice
