January 1-11 & 14-24 2020
Offering an eleven-day Immersive Doula Program to Tanzania focused on enabling birth professionals from around the world to serve the local women and gain hands-on experience during labor and delivery in a foreign setting.
This will be our third year working in these clinics. We have developed long lasting relationship with the staff and we have many exciting developments coming into fruition. More will be announced as it develops!!
From experience, this trip is completely life-changing. From working in the clinics and breaking down our understanding of women and birth, to the culture shock of the region, to doulas coming together, this is for your mind, body and soul.
The entire objective of our work as Doulas is for Women to Serve Women, with respect, compassion, and knowledge.

The doulas will volunteer for a total of six days in two different clinics, working directly with women and their newborns. The doulas will transcend language barriers and share their skill sets. Humbly, they will have an open heart and learn from the resiliency of the African mothers, not trying to replace African birth culture in any way. We are there to serve and love.
Specifics for this trip as far as lodging, we will stay in a beautiful home with a House Mama or Baba to care for our cooking and cleaning needs. Delicious and nutritious meals will be provided.
Our daily schedule will look like us starting each day with a morning meditation and a themed yoga practice, eat breakfast, spend the day in the clinic, return home, debrief from that day, share stories, relax, enjoy dinner, and rest.
Two of the days will be devoted to play! Time outside of the clinic will be culturally rich yet relaxing. We will go on safari and we have a surprise planned for our last day.
