The Warrnambool Breastfeeding Centre is proud to announce two optional workshops
Combine one or both of these workshops with our two day conference for a really rewarding experience – See our conference listing for conference details.
WORKSHOP 1: Do you want to be a Birth Cartographer? This intensive is for those who are looking to enhance and support the decision making process with their clients in birth and beyond. Participants will develop a team of support, role play the language of birth cartography and develop confidence in the practice of birth cartography. There will be opportunities for reflective discussion.
WORKSHOP 2: ‘Trauma-informed practice’ has become a catchphrase if not clichéd concept in recent times. This workshop is an opportunity to delve deeper into understanding the neurophysiological basis of trauma, explore how your personal history and knowledge base have influenced your practice, and appreciate how you as a perinatal professional have significant power to minimize the potential for trauma among those in your care. The workshop will entail a combination of cognitive learning, reflective processes and embodiment practices.
Participants will ideally have attended during the conference presentation of A Neurophysiological Approach to Trauma Minimization In The Perinatal Continuum as a springboard to this workshop.
The Warrnambool Breastfeeding Centre is a hub of information and support for parents in Warrnambool and the surrounding areas. It is a place parents can come to relax and connect with other parents in an informal setting. Importantly, parents can access the breastfeeding information and support they need, when they need it, through professional lactation support and practical support such as breast pump hire and information on lactation aids.
