Frequently Asked Questions

Who should attend?

This summit is for everyone who supports birthing, pregnant, and postpartum families in Arizona. That includes physicians, physical therapists, community health workers, doulas, counselors, midwives, researchers, and more. During this summit you’ll gain deep insight into your clients’ needs — including what they won’t tell you directly. You’ll also have the opportunity to ask questions specific to your work and network with local professionals.

How much will it cost to register?

We want this opportunity to be inclusive of the many professionals and organizations that work with perinatal families. That’s why we’ve made the 4th Trimester Ecosystem Summit completely free.

How is this different from other conferences or summits?

This is the only event that brings together all supporters of Maternal and Child Health to share their direct experiences of supporting families. You won’t encounter this breadth of perspective anywhere else. We’re also completely focused on Arizona, making the discussions and networking highly relevant to your local practice.

Is this just another online presentation I have to sit through? I have serious Zoom fatigue.

The Ecosystem Summit isn’t just another online conference. It’s an interactive event designed to encourage deep conversations and build new partnerships among providers. You’ll be able to reach out to other attendees for informal discussions and networking just like you do at in-person events. We’ll also be hosting an exclusive in-person networking event the night before the online summit.

Do you offer Certificates of Attendance?

Certificates of attendance for professional development hours are available for a small fee following the Summit upon completion of a short evaluation. The 4th Trimester Ecosystem Summit has applied for continuing education credits.


In support of improving patient care, this activity has been planned and implemented by Arizona State University and 4th Trimester Arizona. Arizona State University is jointly accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the
Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.


As a Jointly Accredited Organization, Arizona State University is approved to offer social work continuing education by the Association of Social Work Board’s (ASWB) Approved Continuing Education (ACE) program. Organizations, not individual courses, are approved under this program. State and provincial regulatory boards have the final authority to determine whether an individual course may be accepted for continuing education credit. Arizona State University maintains responsibility for this course. Social Workers completing this course receive 8 credit hours of continuing education credits per individual session.


This activity was planned by and for the healthcare team, and learners will receive 8 Interprofessional Continuing Education (IPCE) credits for
learning and change.
