About this Event

During our open conversation we will discuss topics including:
-What culturally sensitive and accessible community support programs does Victoria offer?
-What is Midwifery Care?
-How midwives assist in areas Doctor’s don’t.
– Q & A with a Midwife.
– What is the role of a Doula, and what exactly do they do during delivery?
– Q & A with a Doula.
– Ask a Doctor of Chinese Medicine how they can prepare you for delivery, prenatal & postpartum. What natural treatments are available in Victoria for moms & newborns and what health concerns can be assisted naturally?
– Q & A with an professional with over 20 years experience in Prenatal Healthcare.
