About Doula Conference
Doula Conference is a national conference event that takes place during International Doula Week, (22-28th March), for doulas and workers in birth. Doula Conference was founded by a committee of women who were passionate about birth and healthy families. They were united by their vision to support a sustainable community of practice for doulas and birth workers in Australia; linking ancient wisdom and tradition with evidence based practice in the modern birth environment. The event committee is filled each year with passionate workers in birth and includes the representation of 'Doula Network Australia' - the national association for doulas and student doulas in Australia.
This conference is an event that aims; to connect Australian doulas and birth workers; to share information and, importantly to identify and reward our wide spread community for the unique work that we do. We recognise that connectedness and support are essential for the ongoing sustainability of the practice.“Giving energy is at the heart of the work so it can be as demanding as it can be rewarding, in isolation."
“Connecting doulas with other doulas is important for sharing experience, new and old ways of doing things, discussing innovation, and information about different hospitals and birth places that will ultimately benefit the birthing mothers and families. It is essential for raising the profile of a movement that has been proven to support better birth outcomes and healthier families.”Doula Conference is working to raise public awareness and demystify the work of doulas in Australia; to diversify the conversation about birth and promote mutual understanding between doulas and the medical/allied health community. But, most importantly, Doula Conference exists to affect better birth outcomes and healthier families in Australia.
