Doing Right at Birth
Doing Right at Birth

We invite you and your colleagues to participate in a free, self-directed video course: Doing Right at Birth. The overall goal of the project is to reduce “over-reports” (that is, a report in excess of the legal mandate) to child welfare for drug exposure. Doing Right at Birth was developed by experts in health, policy, law, and advocacy, along with people affected by the child welfare system. The video course consists of 7 brief videos that lay out the history of child welfare in the US, describe the legal parameters of reporting, discuss the consequences of over-reports to the health of pregnant people, their children, and communities, and re-centers the care of birthing people who use drugs on what they need.
