the essential
On the occasion of the World Week of Respected Childbirth (SMAR), and for the second year in a row, the Doumaïa birth center located in Castres in Tarn is organizing a photo exhibition in these premises located just a few steps from the hospital center intercommunal of Castres-Mazamet (CHIC).

On the occasion of the Respected World Childbirth Week 2024 (SMAR), and for the second year in a row, the Doumaïa birth center in Castres invites you to an exhibition of photographs within these premises and more precisely in the hall of reception and in one of the delivery rooms.

As a reminder, Doumaïa is a birth center which welcomes women/couples who come for physiological birth projects (without medicalization, therefore without epidural anesthesia), with individualized monitoring (the same midwife for monitoring, for childbirth and postpartum period).

“This very important and unique relationship between these two people during childbirth”

“Why I chose the Doumaïa house”, “my birth”, “in the privacy of the first hours”, “the follow-up at the birth center” and “thanks to the team of midwives”… The Already last year, the structure created in 2017 and which is among the nine French birth centers (the only one in Occitania), organized an exhibition with around thirty photos on the theme “A woman and a midwife”. The opportunity to “show this very important and unique relationship between these two people during childbirth”, explained Justine, one of the ten volunteer users of the association. Below each photo, we could read testimonies left by some of the mothers who gave birth at Doumaïa. Poignant testimonies which confirm the success of this birth center, which today has no less than 352 births.

This year, the public will also be able to find photographs of childbirth or the first moments after birth that parents have been kind enough to share. “These are not only photos taken at the birth center, but also at the hospital or at home, since the common thread is respected childbirth; and that includes respecting the choices of the future mother/parents, physiology, human support, few medical interventions – unless necessary or requested by the parturient”, explains Charlotte Schuster, member of the association, who specifies that the opening of the exhibition will take place this Tuesday, May 14 between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m.

“It will be an opportunity to discuss the theme around a complimentary drink. It is open to everyone, whether you are professional or not, future mother, future father or not… And then this event will give us allows us to better raise awareness of our medical and associative structure which works in partnership with the Castres hospital,” she said.
