Thank You

Our Film Fundraiser was held on Saturday night and was a great success. We had beautiful food, wonderful company, the film MILK was both heart wrenching and inspiring and a huge array of awesome raffle prizes were won. Thank you to those that came on the night to support our organisation and those that contributed food and raffle prizes. It couldn’t have happened without you.


Film Fundraiser: Milk

Milk Poster3-2 copy

Milk. This intimate arthouse film by writer/director Noemi Weis harnesses the art of storytelling to convey a powerful alternative message around the commercialisation of birth and infant feeding.

Milkhood premiered at HotDocs Toronto on April 27th 2015 to receive rave reviews and a standing ovation from viewers. It is rare for such a world class documentary to make it to Darwin so soon after its release date. The Childbirth Education Association, a small community organisation, have negotiated directly with film maker Noemi to secure the rights to screen the film in Darwin.

With stunningly beautiful visuals and poignant voices from around the globe Milk inspires reflection on the earliest moments of human life.

You can view the trailer for the movie at www.milkhood.com

Birth Prep on Tuesday!

Our next Birth Prep course begins on Tuesday evening with our new educator, Sharon. If you still want to participate in that course, you can call or email over the weekend and we’ll book you in on Tuesday when the office opens. It’s never too early to take this course, pregnancy is only so long, accessing information early gives you more room to make choices and seek further information. Alternatively, you could book separately into the breastfeeding discussion in 4 weeks time to gain valuable knowledge and insight into the age old science and art of breast feeding.
