More trips coming in 2023

 The Vision


Travel to a land alive with folklore and ancestral wisdom. Soak up the knowledge of Pachamama, and learn from indigenous midwives. The Ecuador Program’s intention is to support indigenous midwives and preserve their sacred knowledge.

In this quickly globalizing world, these women are not passing their wisdom down to their children and grandchildren in the same fashion in which they learned their skills. Their children are going to school, moving to cities, embracing western medicine, and participating in a growing economy. These parteras  (midwives) are the last of their kind, with extensive and profound knowledge around pregnancy, birth and postpartum. As traveling doulas, we will spend time shadowing these women, diving into their culture, and humbly learning from their experiences. Our presence is financially fueling their work, and bringing mindful new awareness to this dying art.


This program’s concentration is on postpartum care, herbal medicine, rebozo techniques, womb healing, vertical birth, and ceremony.

The Mission

Offering a eleven-day Immersive Doula Program to the region of Cotacachi in northern Ecuador. This program is focused on enabling birth professionals from around the world to come together and learn from indigenous midwives. Unlike previous trips, we will not be working in the birth clinic offering any hands-on doula care. With the pandemic, it is still too risky to be in a clinical setting. 


The parteras (midwives) we will learn from have learned their skills from the generations that came before them. Their connection to plant medicine, shamanism, ancient divine wisdom, and experienced hands and hearts, are all things we will humbly learn from as we spend time with them in their community.


Additionally, the mission of this trip is to learn about and connect with different cultures, explore the beauty of the region, connect with other birth workers, and deepen our individual doula practices.


 Collectively, as doulas from around the world, we will learn more about ourselves, our respective cultures, and gain new insights and tools to bring back to our local communities. The entire objective of our work as doulas is to support the perinatal process, with respect, compassion, and knowledge.
