Mission & Vision

Embark on an immersive eleven-day journey with Wombs of the World to the heartlands of Mexico City and Oaxaca. Here, we explore the rich traditions of Mexican birthwork, from the vibrant streets to the soulful practices of traditional midwifery. This experience is a deep dive into Mexico's ancestral wisdom, focusing on rebozo techniques, plant medicine, and the spiritual aspects of childbirth.

 

Oaxaca, with its pulsating heart of community and resilience, serves as our classroom. Our mission is to foster a meaningful exchange between global birthworkers and local communities, offering insights into traditional practices enriched by Mexico's cultural depth. Expect intensive workshops focusing on the mastery of rebozo techniques, the healing power of plant medicine, the nurturing art of postpartum support, and the holistic care of wombs wellness. Our workshops and ceremonies promise a transformative learning experience, connecting you with the timeless wisdom of Mexican parteras.

 

Join us for a journey that weaves ancient practices into the modern tapestry of birthwork, enriching your skills with a global perspective and ancestral knowledge.
