Exploring the Intersection of Midwifery and Prenatal Psychology with Mary Jackson
Exploring the Intersection of Midwifery and Prenatal Psychology features a dynamic and insight-filled interview with the iconic midwife Mary Jackson by Kate White, the director of education for the Association for Prenatal and Perinatal Psychology and Health, APPPAH.
It is ideal when couples and practitioners can prepare for birth with support from pre and perinatal psychology and health. This interview with midwife Mary Jackson explains how imprints happen from the prenatal period and birth, how she and Ray Castellino, Clinical Director of BEBA (Building and Enhancing Bonding and Attachment), support couples and families to have optimal birth and postpartum experiences, and what to do when there has been difficulty along the way. Mary works with Ray at BEBA, where she lives in California. Her vision for what is possible is very moving and essentially, “birth matters.”
This interview is presented as part of Kindred’s alternative media and nonprofit mission to “Share the New Story of Childhood, Parenthood and the Human Family” and as an educational film series with APPPAH through Kindred Pioneering Partners’ Project.
