Need for Program

High levels of emotional exhaustion, a decreasing sense of achievement, and subsequent depersonalisation are sadly affecting many health professionals. Midwives are reporting feelings of stress, burnout, and even compassion fatigue. Professional costs include decreased staff morale, increased sick leave, with lower levels of satisfaction among midwives and those in their care. In order to address the current impact of burnout in midwifery, there is a need for an educational program to unpack the causes and offer strategies to develop the resilience required to prevent these insidious professional threats from occurring.

Purpose of Program

To provide midwives with knowledge and skills to reduce stress and burnout, and to increase personal wellness, job satisfaction, and psychological safety in the workplace, ultimately enhancing women and family-centred approaches to maternity care.
