DR PAMELA DOUGLAS
GP | Researcher | Author | Speaker
Dr Douglas is an Australian GP, and an international leader in infant-care.
She is a writer and researcher, with special interest in perinatal mental health and breastfeeding medicine. Over the past twenty years, Dr Douglas has published the evidence-base to the programs known as Neuroprotective Developmental Care (NDC or 'The Possums Programs'). NDC offers a paradigm shift in the way we help families who face breastfeeding, baby sleep and cry-fuss challenges, and is changing practice world-wide.
The same social and market forces which have brought us to the brink of catastrophic ecological crisis also shape women's experiences in the healthcare system at this time of life. Conflicting advice, and over-diagnosis and overtreatment are widespread.
Dr Douglas's groundbreaking work is detailed in 30 international research publications and in her best-selling The Discontented Little Baby Book. She is founder and Medical Director of the charity Possums & Co., which aims to make NDC an available choice for all parents and health professionals.
