PC2: Maternal Mental Health: Addressing the Most Common Complication of Pregnancy and Childbirth
Mental health conditions are the most common complications of pregnancy and childbirth, impacting at least one in five individuals during pregnancy or the first year postpartum. Although maternal mental health conditions are highly identifiable and treatable, the vast majority (up to 75%) of those impacted by these illnesses remain untreated, increasing the risk of long-term negative impacts on mothers, babies, families, and society. At the end of this workshop, participants will have the knowledge, skills, and resources to effectively engage pregnant and postpartum people on their mental health.

PC4: Legal Issues in Perinatal Nursing: A Mock Trial
Stephanie Martin, DO, Lexi Hill, MD, Jay Goldsmith, MD, and Dennis Ruth, JD
The perinatal nurse faces a high risk of involvement in a malpractice suit. The number of cases alleging malpractice in obstetrics may be the result of several factors, including but not limited to expectations for a “perfect” birth and newborn, accidents, errors in judgment, preventability of maternal injury or death, and increased accountability. This interactive mock trial will provide an interprofessional perspective on general areas of perinatal nursing liability, demonstrate the components of malpractice, and discuss strategies to avoid malpractice claims.

PC6: Finding Meaning in the Losses
The words death and pregnancy should never be in the same sentence, yet all too often, they are. How do we, as health care providers, support the families in what may be their darkest days? How do we continue to provide care to others if we do not take the time to acknowledge the impact death has on us as health care professionals and not let our cups run dry? During this session, we will cover the importance of having a structured bereavement program, making tangible memories, offering organized follow-up, and instituting self-care.
Speaker: Angel Mitchell, RN, MSN, CPN
