Still buzzing after a wonderful Tricks of the Trade Twilight Seminar that was held at the Calm Connexions Education Centre on Monday 12 September 2016. We had 30 experienced and student midwives came together to pool there knowledge. It was awesome to see hundreds of years of midwifery knowledge and skill in the one room being shared so freely!
The wonderful thing about the evening was many of the midwives present have adapted their knowledge and thinking outside of the medical box. So there was a real sense of sharing the wisdom of the ages that just isn’t so easily found any where else.
There was such a nice sense of midwifery community that i for one want more of. We had a wonderfull presentation from Bernadette Liaser showing us how to use aromatherapy oils and acupressure points for labour. And i did breathing and rebozo birthing techniques. But the best part was at the end when all the midwives shared their tricks!
We have had many requests to repeat the night and i am working on that at the moment. Also some suggestions for future topics that would also be useful to midwives are welcome.
