Crow wood Hotel Resort, Burnley, BB12 0RT

Set up in 2011, we have been working with local families every since.

This conference will showcase our work with families, detailing what a Doula does. An opportunity to share best practice between professionals and families.

Unique in the UK, we pay our accredited and CACHE endorsed Doulas to support women for free, with funding from The National Lottery Community Fund. The organisation also provides various groups with support from Social prescribing, Counselling, baby goods bank and now “The Doula Place” incorporating “Doula Cafes“ in areas.

Themes:
Family support – this conference will be helping to inform better practice for supporting families. Looking at how early intervention can better support families.
Perinatal mental health – this is an important issue for families and professionals. Snowdrop Doula exists due to the founders own struggles.
Complex needs – families have many complex needs. Do we make judgements? Should we make judgements? Does complex trauma impact on families and professionals? What about the dynamics between families and professionals?
Working together – families can come across many different services throughout their pregnancy and after birth. How can services work together? Do services work together and understand each role?
