Perth Workshop With Rachel Reed

Physiological Birth & Inductions

With Rachel Reed

Some very exciting news….

Dr. Rachel Reed is coming to Perth to talk about physiological labour and birth and induction of labour – what’s the evidence and how care providers and birth doulas can support women through inductions.

This workshop is open to midwives, obstetricians, health care providers, childbirth educators, birth workers, doulas, pregnant women and anyone interested in labour and birth.

Dr Rachel Reed is a Senior Lecturer and Discipline Leader in Midwifery at the University of the Sunshine Coast, Queensland.

She has practised midwifery in a range of models and settings in the United Kingdom and Australia. Rachel is committed to the promotion of physiological birth, and of women’s innate ability to birth and mother.

She is a writer, researcher and presenter, and is the author of the MidwifeThinking website that many birth workers around the world refer clients to on a regular basis.

Rachel has agreed to come to Perth to share her knowledge about physiological birth, inductions and special circumstances.

She will be talking about:


This session will explore physiological labour from early labour through to birthing the placenta. We will examine physiology and the importance of women’s instincts for safe birthing. Current research will be discussed in relation to how best to support women during a physiological labour.


This session will explore induction of labour. We will look at the variations and complications of pregnancy that result in recommendations for induction. Common practice will be compared to current research and clinical guidelines. We will learn about the induction process, and the complications associated with the interventions involved. The effectiveness of alternative methods of induction will be evaluated. We will also look at how best to support women having an induction and the options available within the process.

Rachel will also be able to tell you more about her new book “Why Induction Matters”.

About Us

& Our Mission

The Doula Training Academy was established to educate, inform, encourage, research and to provide an ongoing support network for Doulas across Australia.

At the Doula Training Academy, we embrace the collective knowledge gained from training, tradition and experience and this is passed down from generation to generation – like a legend or folklores. We recognise that it is not just about being present at a woman’s birth – there is so much more to being a doula. Being a doula is about “listening” to a mother, so you hear and acknowledge her hopes, fears and doubts. It is about “open discussion” with her to develop a birth plan that encourages autonomy, alternatives and choices.

It is about building “rapport” with her and her partner so that they trust you. It is about “eliminating your ego” as you can never think you know it all – every day you must strive to learn something new or different, and that will always highlight you as a quality service that provides a woman “satisfaction that exceeds her expectations.”
