The First 1,000 Days is an umbrella term used by government, philanthropy and organizations to document the critical window of brain development, lifelong health and relationships that occur within the first 1,000 days (conception to age 2). The First 1,000 Days is posited by politicians and public media outlets moving health, early learning and community development out of silos into integrated sustainable, systems with an emphasis on equity. Thus, is imperative to position Lamaze educators to partner with public health programs, early childhood initiatives and community health priorities that bridge together Lamaze's unique role in the first 1,000 days. Come learn about federal, state and local ways to scale up Lamaze in your region and craft partnerships for capacity building. Lamaze educators have a unique and essential role in the first 1,000 days including capacity building for more multilingual childbirth educators and economists and scaling up the care practices for a safe and healthy birth. If Lamaze is left out of the first 1,000 dialogue and funding, we lose the opportunity this critical window not in community health and partnering with expectant parents & policy makers.

Participants may earn 1 Lamaze Contact Hour and 1.2 contact hour of CABRN upon successful completion.
