Upcoming Grand Rounds

Fathers, Midwives, and Family Birth: Fundamental Perspectives for Responsive Practice  

Presenter: Aaron Tabacco, R.N., M.S.N.

October 21, 2014
7:30 a.m. - 8:30 a.m.
DCH Miller Auditorium, Doernbecher Children's Hospital, 11th floor

The roles and experiences of men in modern family birth experiences are as unique and diverse as their parenting partners. Men often struggle to find their places as they experience childbirth through and with their partners.. The purpose of this presentation is to describe and assess the modern landscape of fathering and fathers' experiences with birth and role learning in early fatherhood. Midwives are perfectly positioned to engage men in their journeys into fatherhood when lifespan and responsive practices are used in partnership with families.

Aaron Tabacco is a Registered Nurse currently completing a doctoral dissertation on fathers experiences in families with children with neurobehavioral diversities. Aaron is a father of three adolescent sons and has been engaged in fathering research for nearly 10 years. He is a clinical expert in neurodevelopmental pediatrics and has held faculty and practice roles at OHSU SON and the Child Development & Rehabilitation Center since 2006.
