AIMS Workshop: The Foundation Stones for Supporting the Physiological Process in Pregnancy and Birth

When: 28th February 2024
Venue: Online
Cost: £30 (members) / £40 (non members)

‘The Foundation Stones for Supporting the Physiological Process in Pregnancy and Birth’ is led by Alex Smith (AIMS Journal Editor and Helpline volunteer) supported by Debbie Chippington Derrick and Nada Higson.

In this workshop discussion we will:

  • Share knowledge about Consent, Salutogenesis (including self-efficacy) and the autonomic nervous system and how these concepts hang together beautifully to provide a scientific and evidence-based rationale for supporting the physiological process in every pregnancy and birth situation.
  • Discuss the implications for informing personal decision-making and that of others
  • Reflect on the implications for practice as doulas, educators, midwives or doctors

Tickets are now on sale for this workshop on Wednesday 28 February 10:30 - 12:30 Tickets cost £30 for members, £40 for non-members and include an £8 voucher for the AIMS shop (https://www.tickettailor.com/events/aims/1122384)
