Introduction to Active Birth Sydney April 2021 is a one day workshop aims to empower health professionals with skills to help women achieve a normal physiological birth.

One of the greatest pleasures for midwives is being able to assist a woman through normal, physiological birth. To help a woman in this way requires skills, patience, and trust in the natural birth process. Although midwives recognise the dangers inherent in tampering with normal physiology, we live in a society where women have little trust that their bodies are capable of giving birth safely, and fear pain in labour. Women are demanding epidurals, elective caesareans, and inductions, believing these are safe for themselves and their babies. 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 to get a great introduction to active birth. If you have attended in the past, is it time you updated? Do you need to be re-inspired and re-motivated? You can discover tools that will empower you to empower the women in your care including:

  • Practical skills to help women achieve normal, physiological births
  • Improve skills and add new useful support techniques for labour
  • Implementing active birth strategies in your workplace
