8. What tribal nations’ ancestral knowledge teaches us about maternal health

For true innovation in maternal health to occur, we need to take a look at what works (and what needs improving) with maternal health in various cultures. On this episode, we discuss learning from tribal and indigenous cultures, and the programs and trainings involved.

Today’s guests are Heidi Christensen and Lynn Lane, Maternal Health Innovation Program Managers at Arizona Department of Health Services, and Reena Oza-Frank and Ali Stevens with Ohio Department of Health’s Division of Maternal, Child, and Family Health.

Today’s episode is hosted by Kimberly Harper, the Perinatal Neonatal Outreach Coordinator with UNC Maternal and Infant Health.
