ActiveBirth Two Day Workshop

Scroll to the bottom of the page ActiveBirth Two Day Workshop Brisbane to empower health professionals with skills to help women achieve a normal physiological birth.

Empowering midwives to empower women

One of the greatest pleasures for midwives is being able to assist a woman through physiological birth. Furthermore helping a woman in this way requires skills, patience and trust in the natural birth process. Midwives recognise the dangers inherent in tampering with normal physiology. However we live in a society where women have little trust that their bodies are capable of giving birth safely. As a result there is a great fear of pain in labour. Furthermore women are demanding epidurals, elective caesareans and inductions. Due to a belief that these interventions are safe for themselves and their babies. Consequently midwives, caught up in the politics of maternity care, often feel powerless to change this situation yet there is much they can do.

If you haven’t been to one of these workshops before, here’s your chance. If you have attended in the past, is it time you updated? Do you need to be re-inspired and re-motivated? Most importantly you can discover tools that will empower you to empower the women in your care. If you attend you will:
