Taking Intimate Histories Without Shaming: Lessons Learned From Working With Pregnant Women Who Use Drugs
Presented as part of NAS awareness month in Texas, provided by Texas Health and Human Services.
Presentation Description: Working with pregnant women who are using drugs can be both frustrating and empowering, for client and clinician alike. Being able to conduct a thorough history, without inducing shame, that includes drug use, sexual activities, violence, and other intimate details is an essential step in establishing a trusting relationship with our clients. Lessons learned from working with pregnant drug abusing women for five years as part of a full scope midwifery practice will be shared. Participants will be able to participate in a Q&A session following the presentation.

There she was struck with both the midwifery and public health bugs. She eventually became a Certified Nurse Midwife and obtained graduate degrees in Public Health.
