Supporting Men Becoming Dads
Doula Conference Retreat 2019
March 23, 2019 – March 24, 2019
Venue: Lake Ainsworth, NSW
I’m very excited to have been invited to present a workshop at the Doula Conference Retreat 2019!!!
The workshop is about Men’s journey to fatherhood and the many ways that Doula’s and Birthkeepers can support them.
Understandably, Doula’s can have a significant impact on expectant dads. They are often the key to helping men in their confidence as dads and building new skills before, during and after childbirth.
Working with men and expectant dads is a specialist skill set. However, can often remain a gap in the education and experience of many childbirth professionals. This interactive and experiential workshop will highlight the practical challenges and essential skills needed by Doula’s working with expectant dads. It will share in the celebrations and explore the challenges of Doula’s work. It will help build relationships with men, providing them with a stronger platform to navigate their birthing experience with confidence.
Essentially, this workshop will empower you as a Doula with greater awareness, knowledge and skills to make a deeper impact with the men you are supporting, the woman who are birthing and ultimately the families that you are called to serve.
