Sunday, 9th December, we held our first ever workshop on 'Introduction to Complementary Therapies'. Over 30 professional midwives, nurses, birthing aides and doulas attended this workshop. We provided brief theory sessions and practical workshops on aromatherapy; massaging, acupressure and spinning babies techniques. All these therapies will help support women throughout their labour, and are natural and safe approaches to promote a physiological natural birth.
We are now eagerly waiting to use these new techniques to support women in labour in our hospitals.
