This module has been created by Kellie Whiskin a highly respected Doula, Movement Therapist, Educator and Counsellor who sees birth partner's, as one of the most integral parts of the birthing woman's journey. All modules are inclusive and recognise that birth partners have unique perspectives and experiences too.

 

What is a 'birth partner'?

A birth partner is someone who is invited by the birthing woman, into her birth space, to provide continuous, non-medical support, during labour and birth. This may include, but not limited to, her intimate partner, family member or trusted friend.

 

MODULE 6. SELF ADVOCACY

Self-advocacy refers to the act of advocating for oneself, speaking up, and actively seeking to protect one's rights, needs, and interests. It involves taking responsibility for expressing one's desires, making informed decisions, and asserting oneself in various situations, including healthcare settings.

 

Benefits for Birthing Support Partners:

 

  • Increased Confidence in Expressing Needs: Develop increased confidence in expressing yours and the birthing woman’s needs and desires. This proactive approach ensures your rights and preferences are respected in healthcare settings.

 

  • Empowerment for Informed Decision-Making: Feel empowered to actively participate in informed decision-making, asserting yourself and making choices for the birthing women as required. 

 

  • Proactive Protection of the Birthing Woman's Interests: Acquire the skills to proactively protect the birthing woman’s interests, ensuring that their rights and needs are prioritised and respected throughout the birthing process.
