Receive. Explore. Discover. Integrate. Community. Being. Restore. Connecting.

You will be surrounded by 11 amazing women and colleagues as we collectively deepen our understanding of & explore the impact of patriarchy in our current way of birthing. From thereon we explore what we need to change so that we can guide women to birth from a place of trust, inner strength and safety.

You are dedicated to spend 5 days focussing on you and how to flourish your doula practice

Feel what body-centered care does and what this can do for your health and your pregnant clients
