Dr. Sarah Buckley presents ground-breaking material from her 2015 report, Hormonal Physiology of Childbearing. You will learn about:

  • Four important hormone systems of physiological birth and their benefits for mothers & babies

  • The hormonal impacts of common maternity-care interventions and how to fill in the “hormonal gaps” for mothers and babies, when needed

  • How hormonal physiology supports healthy postpartum transitions for mother and baby

  • The process and importance of the newborn placental transfusion

  • How to put this into practice for yourself and women in your care through small groups practice

We will have photo opportunity and book signing after the workshop. If you don't own her works, come with check, cash or card as Dr. Sarah will have a limited number of books for sale.

About Dr. Buckley

"Sarah J Buckley is a New-Zealand-trained GP/family physician with qualifications in GP-obstetrics and family planning. She is the mother of four home-born children, and currently combines motherhood with her work as a writer on pregnancy, birth, and parenting. She is also a PhD candidate at the University of Queensland, where her research is focused on the hormone systems of labour and birth and the impacts of interventions.

Dr Buckley’s work critiques current practices in pregnancy, birth, and parenting from the widest possible perspectives, including scientific, anthropological, cross-cultural, psychological, and personal. She encourages us to be fully informed in our decision-making; to listen to our hearts and our intuition; and to claim our rightful role as the real experts in our bodies and our children.

Her bestselling book Gentle Birth, Gentle Mothering: A Doctor’s Guide to Natural Childbirth and Gentle Early Parenting Choices, published by Celestial Arts/PenguinRandomHouse (US, 2009), builds on her acclaimed first edition, published in Australia as Gentle Birth, Gentle Mothering: The Wisdom and Science of Gentle Choices in Pregnancy, Birth, and Parenting (One Moon Press, Brisbane, 2005, available as ebook here )."
