Welcome to NACEF
NACEF, Northwest Area Childbirth Educators Forum, is an independent, non-profit, volunteer organization comprised of those who are advocates for the family and to promote current issues in maternal-child health and wellness.
NACEF’s purpose is to further the quality of childbirth education through strengthening the bonds between educators, family members, care providers and the organizations they represent.
For our Annual Conference:
Becoming Us Training
Becoming a family is a time of joy, love and wonder but it might shock you to know that 92% of parents also find it a time of increased conflict with their partner and for 67%, a time of decreased relationship satisfaction. One in 10 mothers and 1 in 7 dads suffer from Postpartum Depression and Postpartum Anxiety is proving to be an even bigger issue with 33% of mothers and 17% of fathers reporting symptoms.
Relationship Counselor and author Elly Taylor has discovered that there is a link between relationship satisfaction and risk for anxiety and depression. In this workshop we will demystify Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders and you’ll learn how the transition into parenthood impacts couples. You’ll also learn how to facilitate your clients from “Being Me to Becoming Us” in ways that bring them closer through the transition, instead of sending them apart.
Attendees of the May 5th Conference will have successfully completed the first step toward Becoming Us Facilitator Training, with the option of continuing your training with Elly.
Don’t want to continue training? No problem! You’ll leave with hands on knowledge and practical skills to take back to your childbirth education students, therapy families, clients, and patients.
