Thank you, Marti. I am hopeful that parents and care providers will take the time to watch this important video on parent advocacy and working towards enhanced care and awareness of things to do to help have a healthy baby going forward. Parents need and deserve information to make good decisions. Professionals have an ethical responsibility to help parents be fully informed. Thank you for this opportunity!

Thank you so much for this presentation! It's hard for me to be assertive with authority figures, such as doctors because of the assumption that they know best. But making sure parents know to advocate for their child is so important. Being an adult now, my mother still advocates for me when I am too timid to ask more medical questions because I don't want to come off as bothersome. It is something I hope to practice and improve on to make sure my child will get the best care.
