Before facilitating a presentation with families, please watch the Facilitator Tips and Tricks video for information on how to best communicate this information with families.
Subject matter experts provided the Maternal Health Network with what they see as the three most important things families need to know about whole body health during and after pregnancy. Using this information, the Maternal Health Network has established a consumer presentation toolkit for providers, which includes a flyer, PowerPoint presentation with facilitator notes, an Agenda, and a training video that is intended to provide a mechanism for consistent messaging across providers for whole body health during and after pregnancy. All materials are available for download and have space for you to add your organization’s logo on the materials should you desire.
The Maternal Health Network worked with subject matter experts to develop three 3-minute videos specific to whole body health during and after pregnancy for consumers.

The second video has tips for you as an educator on how to talk with families about this topic. The third video describes a consumer experience.
