About the event
This waterbirth session will highlight the benefits for birth attendants, mothers and babies. Dianne will share the hormonal interplay and how the bio-physical and social model of care sits very comfortably with the use of water in labour and birth. We will have the opportunity to share the factors which trigger the first breath once the baby leaves the water. As with all midwifery practice water labour/birth requires robust clinical care and evidence based practice.
There will be time to ask questions and extra resources which may assist your self and mothers.
