The Perinatal Foundation is proud to support programs, events, and speakers that help further our mission to improve outcomes for birthing people and families.
COVID-19 and Perinatal Care Webinar Series
At the beginning of the pandemic, the Perinatal Foundation partnered with Wisconsin Association for Perinatal Care (WAPC) to host a series of webinars focused on COVID-19 and Perinatal Care. Employees and speakers worked to get necessary and relevant information out as our understanding of the virus and healthcare protocols were changing by the minute. It was work that paid off as we had record numbers of providers joining us from across Wisconsin and beyond. These webinars were able to be provided free of charge thanks to generous funding from the Perinatal Foundation and we couldn't be more proud of the work we were able to support. Available through WAPC's website, you can view the webinars below. Please note that while webinars are free, registration is required.
