“I want to thank Debra, Claudia, Kate, Zena, and Sara for their incredible knowledge and guidance through the MAMPS program, which has laid so much of the groundwork for resources like this to be created in the first place. (she is referring to her chart and protocol sheet she made)
I made this because I’m on a good run and have had a 100% success rate with turning babies within 72 hours of treatment since incorporating cupping into my breech treatment (which I learned via MAMPS) along with root treatment and moxa. Maybe its just a coincidence, but I feel like the addition of cupping the low back has really made a difference.” ~ Sarah (2021 student)
MAMPS (Maternity Acupuncture Mentoring and Peer Support) Mentorship Information
MAMPS is a collaboration of four acupuncturists highly experienced in supporting pregnancy, labor, and postpartum care. Recognizing that these topics have been downplayed or even discouraged in some acupuncture schools, our goal is to help acupuncturists become safe, effective, confident providers of pregnancy, birthing, and postpartum care. We also aim to nurture excellence in the next generation of teachers and treatment providers while providing a safe and inspiring space for group study.
We are delighted to be offering our fourth year of this mentorship to support acupuncturists of all levels of experience. Come and join us to develop your confidence for clinical practice or connect and share with other experienced practitioners and troubleshoot your difficult cases.
The focus for this year’s mentorship is clinical cases – with a monthly discussion on specific case histories. There will also be a research journal club and a writers group meeting each month for those interested in developing their skills in these areas.
Optional additional resources will be provided for those who wish to explore topics in further depth, including understanding key research and how to utilize this for promoting acupuncture in maternity care.
At the end of the course and completion of set activities, you will receive a MAMPS certificate and have the option of applying for 15 distant CEU/PDA through Healthy Seminars included as part of your tuition.
