Jan 1-11 & 14-24
Join us in Tanzania next winter to serve laboring mamas in two local, rural maternity clinics.
Deepen your doula practice with intensive clinical experiences. This opportunity allows us to truly apply our skill sets as doulas, offering compassionate, gentle and respectful care to birthing women and to hospital staff.
This will be our third year working in these clinics.
This journey will stretch the limitations of your heart, broadening your perspective of birth, the strength of women, and the fragility of life.
Beyond serving in the clinics, you will explore the beautiful vast savannahs of East Africa, and deeply nourish yourself.
Join us in Ecuador this July to learn from indigenous midwives.
The intention of this experience is to dive deep into ancestral birth knowledge, spending time with women who combine shamanism, holistic herbology, and midwifery. They have learned their skills from their parents and grandparents, who have learned from the generation before them.
There will also be hands-on days in the hospital, serving as doulas offering labor support, while also observing how this region is combining indigenous practices with western medicine.
This program is less about the volume of births, and more about the opportunity to learn new skills from these midwives, such as rebozo techniques, birth positions, herbal remedies, and maybe a little birth magic.
