Calling all pregnant mamas: join us for our first pregnancy event of the year, a FREE talk from leading experts to help you have an awesome birth experience
It’s a new year and we’re ready to welcome a new batch of Sassy babies with a fresh crop of our ever popular Pregnancy events! These super special gatherings just for mamas-to-be feature top pregnancy and prenatal experts in their fields, and are also a fab way to meet other pregnant mamas and hear from Singapore’s best pregnancy-related businesses (many of whom offer special perks and discounts just for our lovely readers!).
Our first talk of 2017 will take place on Wednesday, 29 March at lunchtime in the CBD – perfect for working mamas-to-be. The first topic will be “All About Doulas and Natural Birth in Singapore,” and will feature a truly dynamic duo of women who can tell you absolutely everything you need to know to achieve exactly the kind of birth YOU want to have, mama!
Red Miller of Love Based Birth: How to achieve a natural birth in Singapore
A frequent Sassy Mama contributor and past speaker, Red is a birth consultant, midwife, biodynamic craniosacral therapist, and general birth geek who’s incredibly passionate about helping women have positive, informed birth experiences and has helped thousands of couples do just that! Her talk will cover What defines a natural/normal birth? along with a proven 4-step process for achieving a natural birth in Singapore (where societal norms and attitudes don’t always make it so easy!). Love Based Birth is for couples who want a more informed, loving and joyful pregnancy and parenting experience (yes, it is possible!), and you can also look out for Red’s forthcoming book, From Fear to Love: Your Guide to a Magical, Fearless Birth, that will publish this April!
Kiki Porter Wolff: All About Doulas
A nurse and midwife with 35 years’ experience and a degree in maternity psychology, Kiki Porter Wolff has spent the last 12 years working alongside Dr. TC Chang at Thomson Medical Centre, helping his patients, teaching Hypnobirthing, and serving as Dr. Chang’s private midwifery Doula. Kiki will cover topics such as
- Who is a Doula
- Types of Doulas in Singapore
- Why you might choose to have a Doula
- Outline of the care and benefits provided by a Doula
- Support before and during labour and childbirth
- Description of a typical labour and birth with a Doula
If you’ve been considering hiring a Doula to assist you before, during or after labour, this talk is a MUST, mama!
The event will be taking place at AAM Advisory, which offers complete financial planning services for expats, Permanent Residents and Singaporeans, all focused around wealth creation and preservation strategies. You’ll have a chance to chat with some of their team members to learn more about crucial parenting topics like insurance (life covers, critical illness cover, etc.), Estate Planning, Wills and Education Fee Planning/Saving.
You’ll also have a chance to meet Frances Ren, a postpartum consultant who can tell you more about her unique approach to helping new mamas and their newborns adjust to life in the “fourth trimester” using a combination of ancient Eastern medicinal philosophies and Western holistic tools. Also along for the fun will be our friends from New Mothers’ Support Group – an awesome social community aimed at connecting new mums and building friendships.
Along with our awesome speakers – whose talks will last 45-60 minutes in total – you can look forward to flaunting your bump for the lovely ladies of Littleones Photography, who will shoot the event and provide a FREE digital image to any mama who wants to capture her bump. Just check out our Facebook page afterwards, mama! You can also chat with this talented sister duo about their fab maternity and newborn photography offerings!
