DescriptionMidwives can find it challenging to be compassionate to others if they are not compassionate to themselves and are at risk of compassion fatigue and burnout. The workshops relates to an enabling environment and ‘caring for carers’ to support participants develop some self-compassion skills to prevent compassion fatigue. This interactive workshop introduces the concept of selfcompassion and how this is an important component of selfcare, calm breathing, deep relaxation, the power of touch techniques, meditation and much more. This workshop is highly relevant for all midwives, especially since many of us are still feeling/living the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
