Professional Development Training

Birth for Humankind runs accredited professional development training workshops on Supporting Women with Complex Needs during Pregnancy and Birth. The workshops are appropriate for anyone working with pregnant women, including healthcare professionals, social workers/case managers and interpreters.

Our next two-day workshop will run on Thursday 28th and Friday 29 March, 2019 in Melbourne CBD.

Sessions will explore how best to support women:

  • experiencing financial hardship
  • at risk of or experiencing perinatal depression
  • who are under 25 years of age
  • at risk of homelessness
  • with a refugee background, an asylum seeker or newly arrived
  • with a history of mental health, drug and alcohol, or trauma and abuse issues
  • who identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander

The professional development training has been co-designed and will be co-facilitated by women with lived experiences. In addition to providing relevant and practical insight into working with complex needs, our co-facilitators receive training, casual employment and practical workplace skills, in order to improve their longer-term employability.

Ticket costs: $250 + GST /day or $475 + GST for both days (option to attend one or both days available). Group discounts available.

CPD points are available.
