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?

– 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.
