The MOMS team is committed to elevating not only maternal health, but also health equity and cultural safety, as priority issues in Montana. The following collection of materials have been curated by and created for Montana professionals serving pregnant and postpartum patients and families to increase capacity to provide culturally safe, trauma-informed care. This series seeks to improve perinatal care delivery through acknowledgement, respect, validation, and integration of patients’ individual perspectives, cultures, identities, values, beliefs, and abilities.

It is the hope of MOMS that health care organizations will include these materials in their learning management systems (LMS) to provide broader access to these materials for provider teams serving perinatal patients and families. We do ask that individual presenters and MOMS be provided appropriate credit when this series is disseminated. Please include the MOMS funding disclaimer when sharing these resources.
