The Mission

 

Offering an eleven-day Immersive Program for birthworkers (doulas, midwives, L&D nurses) in Karatu, 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.

 

We have established long-lasting relationships 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 birthworkers coming together, this is for your mind, body, and soul. 

 

The entire objective of our work as birthworkers is to be of service, with cultural competency, curiosity, respect, compassion, and knowledge.

 The Vision

 

The birthworkers/doulas will offer their services for a total of five 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 wonderful team there to take care of us. Delicious and nutritious meals will be provided. Dietary needs can be met!

 

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! We will spend time with local tribes to learn from their birth rituals. 

 

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.
