We are pleased to welcome Doula and Childbirth Educator Cath Cook to present our next workshop.
Cath has worked as a Doula and Childbirth Educator for over 9 years. She is a long-term member of Australian Doulas and has been training new Doulas in Western Australia for the past 6 years. She is also a co-founder of DadSkills, online childbirth education for men.
Although awareness of Doulas and their services is increasing, still many couples wonder, 'What is a Doula and why would we need one?'
Pregnancy and birth is something we experience maybe only once, twice or a few times in our lives. In our busy medical system, care providers have a limited amount of time they can spend with couples and their focus is often on the physical wellbeing of mother and baby. Of course this is extremely important, but there is so much more to the experience of pregnancy and birth and this is where a Doula can come in.
Cath will talk with you about the role of the Doula and the benefits a Doula can bring to both mothers and fathers, particularly if the circumstances surrounding the birth of your previous child/ren were not what you had hoped or imagined they would be.
This free workshop will be held in Subiaco on Tuesday the 10th of November at 7pm. Our workshops are conducted in a relaxed environment and open to all families and carers affected by high-risk pregnancy, premature birth or having a sick newborn.
