FIRST OUR BABY FORMULA, NOW THE CHINESE WANT OUR MIDWIFE CATH.   

                            

It’s not just baby Formula the Chinese are scrambling to get hold of in Australia, now they want our own Midwife Cath.


Popular Australian Midwife Cathryn Curtin, aka “Midwife Cath”, is the best selling author of “The First Six Weeks” and “After the First Six Weeks”. Her third book “Pregnancy” is on the way,..  so too is a trip to Beijing.


After the success of Midwife Cath’s first 2 books, Chinese publishers have bought the rights to both books, and they’re set to be translated into Mandarin. 

Midwife Cath will travel to China to promote her books.


Cath says, “Since the relaxing of the one child policy, Chinese women are having more babies than ever before, through my books I’m excited to be able to help them with their pregnancies and early motherhood journeys”


Traditionally Chinese women have had poor long-term breastfeeding rates, which is one of the reasons the Chinese source large quantities of baby formula from Australia. 


Midwife Cath has become a trusted expert for new mums seeking good advice and has over 30,000 instagram followers. She has strong views and her advice  can sometimes be controversial. 


Midwife Cath is a strong advocate for breastfeeding, however she also respects and supports the rights of women who choose to bottle-feed using baby formula.

Cath says, “What’s important is that babies are fed, not hungry.”


She says, “My Bath, Bottle, Bed routine for new mum’s includes introducing a bottle of milk starting from the baby’s first night home from hospital.”


The bottle feed, given by the father or mother’s partner, could be expressed breast milk, or formula, it’s the last feed of the day, and gives mothers a well earned rest. Partners  get a  chance to bond with their baby, giving them a bath, a feed and putting the baby to bed.
