Dawn Worgan is a passionate midwife with more than 30 years experience. She works across the full scope of the midwifery practice, in a continuity of care (caseload) model.
I have been privileged to support many couples through pregnancy, labour, birth and beyond. Having seen first hand how the Calmbirth preparation can positively influence a birthing journey with simple breathing techniques, relaxation and visualisation, I was motivated to became a Calmbirth educator myself.
Calmbirth makes sense! I love being a midwife and have felt honoured to be a part of so many journeys to parenthood; I love making a difference as a midwife and as calmbirth educator, and I look forward to sharing my knowledge and skills with pregnant couples.What could be more rewarding?
My name is…Dawn Worgan.
My most memorable moment as a Calmbirth Educator… Would have to be each time I become a mother myself, each time unique, you never forget, this also inspired my career as a midwife.
I first became really interested in Calmbirth when my daughter was expecting her first baby, I was so inspired I became a Calmbirth educator myself, the more I learnt the more Inspired I became. Calmbirth makes sense and there is nothing better than seeing participants grow in confidence and knowledge over the period of the workshop, and receiving their positive feedback.
My life in five words…Busy, Predictable and also Unpredictable, a never ending circle (I know that’s more than 5).
What I love most about where I live… In The Dandenong Ranges east of Melbourne is the feeling of open space and fresh air, the hills, the forest, and having 4 seasons (sometimes all in one day). Autumn being my favourite, I also love that I live close to where I work.
What I do to relax when I’m not working is… I love baking for the family, spending time with them. I love sewing, knitting, and travel. I would like to get into gardening one day.
The three essential things you need to take with you in labour are… your partner or support person, belief in yourself, and a midwife, (one you have got to know if at all possible.
I can’t live without…I couldn’t live without my family or my Lady Grey tea bags!
The person I admire most is…I couldn’t name one as I admire lots of people from all walks of life.
The best advice I eve got in my life was…To “choose your battles”
