This workshop is for anyone interested in becoming a Doula, Birthkeeper or Traditional Birth Attendant. Hosted by Jady Mountjoy and Joy Horner, Birthkeepers with a combined experience in working with families of over 40 years.

Are you a midwife wishing to work in a more holistic way, maybe you are new to the Birthkeeper’s path and unsure if being a doula, midwife, or Birthkeeper is for you, and want to find out more about these important roles, or perhaps you already know that your calling is to walk the path that has been trodden by wise women throughout history.

In this one-day workshop you will discover the skills and qualities needed to become a Birthkeeper, and what families require during their sacred rites of passage. You may already possess many of the essential qualities needed, like honesty, integrity, and respect for families, but others will need to be learned and practised as you hone your craft. The ability to listen without judgement, to support all women and birthing people without leading them, and the presence to stay grounded in any situation you may find yourself in are skills that require great fortitude. You will learn about the importance of viewing pregnancy, birth and parenthood as the sacred rites of passage that they are, and the need for reverence and ceremony around these timeless portals. You will also gain practical information on the importance of confidentiality, inclusivity, and working in relationship with other doulas and health professionals. It will be a nourishing, informative and interactive day filled with opportunities for hands on experiences, and answers to your questions.

We can’t wait to welcome you onto the Birthkeeper’s path introductory day.
