I really do love to travel and meet midwives and birth folk in other parts of the world. When this post goes live, I’ll be in northern Norway, where I am really excited to be going on a Northern Lights safari as well as speaking to lovely midwives and birth folk. So as long as I can get online, I will be posting pics on my facebook page!
I get so much out of these trips, not least of which is what I learn from other midwives which I can then share on as I travel to different places. I gather ideas, stories, recipes, knitting patterns (both literal and metaphorical) and midwifery wisdom, and these become part of the rich tapestry of knowledge and experience that we can share with each other about birth, midwifery and women’s lives.
Our next trip, as you might have gathered from the photo, is to Australia and New Zealand, and I hope this post will also serve as a quick reminder to any midwives who are thinking of coming to my workshops but haven’t yet booked – don’t wait til the last minute, because some of the workshops are nearly full and places are limited.
Here are the links you need to find out more or to book your ticket:
27 April 2017. Gathering in the Knowledge – Queenstown, New Zealand.
28 April 2017. The Labour Progress Workshop – Queenstown, New Zealand.
3 May 2017. Gathering in the Knowledge – Whangarei, New Zealand.
4 May 2017. Exploring Prophylaxis (anti-D, vit K, GBS) – Whangarei, New Zealand.
And in Australia I’ll also be presenting The Labour Progress Workshop as a pre-conference workshop for the CAPERS Bookstore Passage to Motherhood conference. It’s always a fabulous conference, with all sorts of yumminess going on in between brilliant conference sessions, and here’s the link for that one:
May 9-12, 2017. CAPERS Bookstore Passage to Motherhood Conference. Brisbane, Australia.
I really hope to see you somewhere on my travels and, in the meantine, don’t forget to look out for our Norway posts and pics!
