PhD in Leadership and Change student Amy Rebekah Chavez launched Trauma and Resilience Informed Birth Education (T.R.I.B.E.), a parenting and perinatal professional support cooperative dedicated to changing culture through healing and preventing trauma in, around, and through the birth process. Chavez is a holistic health practitioner with over two decades of experience specializing in trauma-informed care and perinatal healing support. The first cohort of twenty-three interdisciplinary perinatal professionals have begun a nine-month mentorship journey, where they have the opportunity to engage in their own personal healing work while professionally developing skills to integrate trauma-informed care and somatic-oriented resilience practices into their professional perinatal practices. With a grant from the Northwest Dayton Partnership, they will engage in a pilot program offering interdisciplinary trauma-informed care, including parenting peer support circles, childbirth education, prenatal yoga, perinatal massage therapy, birth and postpartum doula support, and lactation services, to high-risk pregnant women in Dayton, Ohio in the next nine months.
