Giving Birth in a New Land--Strategies for Service Providers Working with Newcomers

12:30 to 4:00 p.m

The Best Start Resource Centre is pleased to offer service providers a new resource and a workshop titled "Giving Birth in a New Land--Strategies for Service Providers Working with Newcomers."

The manual shares information about the beliefs and practices of newcomer women when accessing reproductive health services. It explains strategies for service providers to offer services in a culturally competent manner. The manual is available for download or purchase at http://www.beststart.org/resources/rep_health/index.html.

We will also offer a half-day regional workshop on the topic where the manual will "come alive," with real-life examples and discussion. The objectives of this workshop are to:

  • Increase knowledge of the beliefs and practices of newcomer women.
  • Provide strategies to help newcomer women and their families understand Ontario health practices.
  • Discuss strategies that can be used by service providers, within their organizational mandate, to accommodate the needs of newcomer women and their families.

Cost: $30, lunch and manual included
