Be the Healthcare Partner Millennial Parents are Looking For

Over 80% of new parents are millennials, and millennials are looking for health care partners who help them feel empowered to make their own informed health decisions. Drawing from research in the fields of psychology, human-centered design, and human behavior, the one-day Mothership Certified training workshop and 4-week virtual course focuses on providing knowledge and tools for health service providers on building connection and promoting empowerment in health practice when working with millennial parents. 

Training Program Details

The Mothership Approach

Designed with both novice and experienced health professionals in mind, the Mothership Certified training program offers opportunities for reflection and involves activities to encourage personalized changes to daily health practice that support building connection and empowering patients/clients. 

8 sessions build on one another during an 8-hour in-person training workshop or a 4-week virtual course exploring the following topics:

  • Better Understanding Yourself- Reflect on your own challenges, constraints, and biases; understand how they impact your care; and learn practical tools to overcome personal barriers and practice self-care.

  • Better Understanding Your Patient/Client- Learn to read emotional and cultural cues in practice; reflect on your patient's/client's journey; and discover how to improve your patient’s /client's experience during your care and how it can lead to greater impact.

  • Building Connection and Promoting Empowerment- Learn to connect with and empower your patients/clients through intentional communication design using space, language, nonverbal cues, and storytelling.











Connection and Empowerment for Better Outcomes







Health Service Providers We Train








Upon completion of the entire training workshop, attendees will receive a Mothership Certified designation as well as:

  •   A Mothership Certified certificate;

  • An Optional listing on our public-facing Mothership Certified website (coming soon)as a Mothership Certified health service provider;

  • Access to an online community to continue to share stories, best practices, and opportunities for further study related to building connection and promoting empowerment in health practice.


Research shows us that building connection and empowerment can also contribute to better patient satisfaction and health outcomes. Therefore, the Mothership Certified training and certification program complements and contributes to the following types of initiatives, nicely:

  • Patient satisfaction

  • Quality improvement

  • Patient-centered/client-centered care

  • Customer service
