Hands, Heart & Head Embracing the Three Facets of Perinatal Care
October 28th, 2019 | Fremont Abbey
For this year’s conference, we will focus on the three areas of knowledge that support and uplift perinatal and postpartum doula care:
HANDS From how to use massage tools, to knowing how to get parents through birth, to supporting families postnatally, hands-on skills are part of every doulas’ tool bag. Our “Hands” track will focus on exploring new skills, polishing old, and sharing tips and tricks. Speaker: TBA
HEART Pregnancy and birth is a transformative process, with changes that impact the whole person. Our “Heart” track will look at how doulas can best support the emotional wellbeing of themselves and their clients. Speaker: TBA
HEAD Understanding evidence, having a “head for business” or data, and knowing the latest in perinatal research are valuable tools for doulas to have. Our “Head” track will be talking about current developments in perinatal care, logistic skills for doulas, and other data-driven issues. Keynote Speaker: TBA
In addition to our Speakers, we will be running concurrent tracks of mini-talks in each subject. We will be asking our doula community to submit their proposals for short (30-45 min) talks, workshops or discussions later this year.
