The Roar Behind the Silence – 1 November

(and in Perth, Melbourne and Sydney prior to this)

There has been growing concern about the culture of fear that is penetrating maternity services and that this fear felt by maternity care workers is directly and indirectly transferred to the women and families they serve.

Roar behind the Silence seeks to raise awareness, explore the causes of distress in maternity care and ways in which, together, we can address issues and find solutions so that maternity services provide optimum care for childbearing women and their families, and a positive supportive environment for the staff. These issues are the focus of the workshops. (Adapted from The Roar behind the Silence book, edited by Sheena Byrom & Soo Downe), 2015. 

This event is for anyone interested in childbirth and the maternity system – midwives, doulas, midwifery students, consumer advocates and more…

The workshop will provide 6 contact hours and you will receive a Statement of Attendance.

Cultivating Compassion in Maternity Care – 2 November 

This event is for health professionals/students working in maternity care including midwives, doctors, special care/NICU nurses.

Midwives (and others working in maternity care) are frequently exposed to traumatic events due to the nature of their work. There is a growing recognition of the increased risk of secondary traumatic stress (also known as “compassion fatigue” or “burn out”). This workshop aims to provide specific practical tools to build emotional strength and improve resilience through cultivating compassion. Compassion practices have been shown to improve distress tolerance and emotion regulation by increasing the ability to soothe, as well as increasing flexibility, acceptance and positive motivation.

The skills acquired in this workshop will be able to be applied personally and professionally in your daily life.

The workshop will provide 6 contact hours and you will receive a Statement of Attendance.
