NEWS: Women’s health workshop series 2019 “Herbal Medicine and Nutrition for Midwives and Birth Practitioners”

Herbal Medicine and Nutrition for Midwives and Birth Practitioners

With so many nutritional and herbal supplements available to purchase online, in supermarkets, chemists and health food stores, it can be difficult for pregnant women to know the difference between good quality and inferior products. 

Are you a midwife or practitioner who looks after women in the antenatal or postnatal period? Do you feel confident in discussing and recommending the use of nutritional products and herbal medicines during pregnancy and breastfeeding? What should you be recommending to women whilst they are pregnant or breastfeeding?

The workshop will cover:

  • Nutritional supplements in pregnancy including pregnancy multivitamins, probiotics, Vitamin D, Fish oils, Iron, Calcium and Magnesium
  • Herbal medicine for birth and lactation including Raspberry Leaf tea and commonly recommended galactagogues
  • Antenatal and postnatal diets and healthy eating recommendations
  • Safety issues and current research

The cost of the workshop is $15 (or $10 if you book with a friend) and includes morning tea, guest speakers, access to notes/resources and a FREE gift bag. Tickets can be purchased here.

We look forward to seeing you there!
