Midwifery 2012


Midwives Australia wants to support YOU with an interactive workshop for midwives wanting to keep in touch with the trends for 2012 and beyond. Friday May 18th & Saturday May 19th Two Workshop days being held in association with the Pregnancy Babies & Children’s Expo at the Sydney Showgrounds, Olympic Park.

10 CPD points for two days attendance
Day 1 (9.30am – 3pm) Perspective - National registration and changes to midwifery regulation - Continuing Professional Development - What women want? - Moving to continuity of care models Practice - Supporting women in labour and active birth
Day 2 (9.30am – 4pm) Practice - Perinatal mental health – a skills update - Morning tea - Mentoring midwives Possibilities - Review of private practice across Australia - Medicare and eligibility - Career opportunities in midwifery
The amazing Australian documentary Face of Birth will be screened during the workshop. What is face of birth? http://www.faceofbirth.com
Scientific evidence shows that how we are born has a huge impact on our health and happiness - as babies, children and, for some of us - for the rest of our lives. Home birth mothers believe that they are making the best and safest choice for themselves and their babies. Mainstream medicine in Australia, unlike the UK, thinks otherwise. This is a film about families that choose to give birth at home, the midwives and health professionals who support them and a system that works against them. Midwives will receive complimentary tickets to the Expo plus a GAIA Natural Skincare ‘goodie bag’ as a part of the workshop and will have a guided tour during the lunch break.
COST $150 for the two days (daily rate available $80).

Midwives Australia is also in need of help on the “Meet the Midwives Lounge” at the expo. It is a way of advertising, for those wanting business and a way of getting the word out there about midwifery.
