South Carolina Infant Mental Health Association's Study Group is a professional development opportunity open to all SCIMHA members. 

SCIMHA's study group is an interactive experience that works best when all attendees actively participate. Discussion will focus on how our work and life experiences relate to the information shared in the professional development offering. 

Doulas are Magic, with LaToisha Rouse

SCIMHA's study group will meet to review an episode in the podcast series Maternal Health Innovation. The podcast is developed by the Maternal Health Learning and Innovation Center, a network of maternal health equity experts and organizations working to make real change for women and birthing people in the U.S. 

In this episode, LaToisha Rouse shares how becoming a doula changed her entire life by allowing her to give people exactly what she wishes she had while delivering her four children (including triplets). According to LaToisha, "the reward is instant. It's addictive and you get to do it again and again and again, and you keep hearing the stories."

But, unfortunately, there's a dark side to stories, which include hearing about the maternal mortality statistics and mistreatment numbers. For LaToisha, that's just another opportunity to help. This episode is hosted by Dr. Kristin Tully, co-chair of of the MHLIC Innovation Support Core, and researcher at UNC Chapel Hill.
