A tribute to Andrea Robertson
Andrea was a passionate advocate for natural birth and midwifery. She was involved in many campaigns for the improvement of maternity services in Australia and initiated educational services for health professionals and pregnant women. She travelled the world offering workshops in childbirth education. I had the privilege to attend one of her active birth workshops when she was in London many years ago.
Andrea was the founder of Birth International, which provides educational recourses and sponsors overseas speakers within Australia.
Andrea died last month and its wonderful that her work has changed many lives and her legacy will continue into the future.
