Event description
Join Dr Rachel Reed, Professor Hannah Dahlen and Dr Kate Levett for a full day's exploration of this widely debated topic in childbirth!

About this Event

Being induced is one of the most common interventions in childbirth with approx 40% of women in Australia starting their childbirth journey through being induced.

We know this can be the start of a cascade of interventions but that sometimes it is also the best decision for mum and/or baby.

This full-day event will take you on an in-depth exploration of this widely debated topic so you can leave feeling more knowledgeable and confident about how to support pregnant women:

Dr Rachel Reed, Senior Lecturer in Midwifery at the University of the Sunshine Coast and author of "Why Induction Matters" and Midwife Thinking blog - Rachel will take us through the key areas of why induction matters that are detailed in her book including:

  • Making decisions about induction
  • Key differences between induction and physiological labour
  • Common reasons for recommending induction
  • Woman-centred induction (including birth plans)

Professor Hannah Dahlen, Professor of Midwifery at Western Sydney University and author of several books most recently "The Canary in the coalmine - birthing outside the system" and international speaker on maternity topics. Hannah will be talking about the topic of induction, including:

  • The latest data on induction rates
  • What this means to the wider birthing world
  • What are the implications of induction on women and babies, including potential long term impact
  • How deciding to be induced or not is impacted by autonomy, decision making and choices
  • Why pregnant women opt to leave the medical system as a result of pressure to be induced

"Dr Kate Levett, Senior Research Fellow at the University of Notre Dame Australia, School of Medicine, Auburn Clinical School, and an acupuncturist at Health Space Brookvale.

Kate will provide a brief evidence update and a comprehensive hands-on workshop focussing on the use of acupuncture and acupressure for an induced labour and birth. You will leave with:

  • skills and information that you can use with pregnant women to assist them in the lead up to being induced
  • ways of encouraging labour prior to a medical induction through the use of acupressure
  • ways to manage labour which has been induced

If you work with pregnant women this event is NOT TO BE MISSED!!! Pregnant mums and consumers welcome too - lets share evidence-based information to help achieve positive birthing experiences for women!!!

The experience, knowledge and skills that will be provided during this 1 day workshop will be invaluable to your work with pregnant women.
