Presentations from classes
Amanda Doherty- Parent Education Midwife
My main role is to organise and facilitate antenatal education classes for parents booked for maternity care at DGT. I work collaboratively with other health professionals to ensure current evidence based information is taught to support women and families make informed choices.
I am passionate about antenatal education; I believe that having an understanding of the physiology of birth, an awareness of choices and knowledge of where to get further support can go a long way to ensure a positive birth experience, whether this be a vaginal birth, caesarean birth etc...
I am also a Hypnobirth Midwife Practitioner, part of the Birth Reflection and Resolution team and I am involved with the creation and maintenance of the DGT Maternity Website.
Ana Llorente - Clinical Support Worker to Specialist Midwives
I am a Maternity Support Worker providing clinical assistance to the Infant Feeding, Parent Education and Diabetes specialist teams. An important part of my work is dedicated to supporting families clinically and providing feeding and general antenatal education. I also support the Infant Feeding midwife in running the service in accordance to Unicef’s Baby Friendly Initiative and providing staff training.
