Episode Title: Mental Health Policy & Advocacy with Dr. Jennie Bever, PhD, IBCLC and

Elizabeth Wood of 4th Trimester Arizona.

Jennie Bever is a mother, a healer and a visionary. She is an International

Board Certified Lactation Consultant, an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the

Edson College of Nursing and Health Innovation at Arizona State University,

and the Executive Director of 4th Trimester Arizona.

Elizabeth Wood has a B.S. of Physics from the United States Naval Academy

and a Masters in Engineering Management from Old Dominion University.

While this education did prepare her for a 15-year long career in the nuclear

energy industry, none of it prepared her for the radical transition into

motherhood. Driven by her own motherhood challenges, she founded

Matrescence: 4th Trimester Planning & Support, a unique preventative

approach to help expecting parents become more informed, prepared and

supported in their 4th Trimester transition. She is also a certified Maternal

Mental Health Peer Support Specialist, and serves on the Arizona Maternal

Mortality Review Committee as well as Arizona's Maternal Mental Health

2020 Mom Nonprofit Fellows:

The aim of 2020 Mom's NonProfit State Policy Fellows program is to assist

backbone organizations in developing a foundation for regulatory and

statutory policy change to close gaps in maternal mental health in their

states. Policy fellows are introduced to the State Legislative Process, thinking

of the State Budget as a Policy, Creating Individual Calls to Action &

Organization Sign on Letters, Social Media Advocacy, Communicating

Effectively with Policymakers and Staff, Administrative Advocacy & Working

with State Agency Leaders, Mental Health and the Criminal Justice System,

and Addressing Racial Disparities through Policy. At the end of the program

Fellows will have developed an action plan presented to their peers and

leadership, and will continue to receive support through the group listserv.
