Journey into Birth Retreat

In this retreat, you will be exposed to many different ways to incorporate your dreams into the growing and expanding fields of supporting women...your their JOURNEY INTO BIRTH!

What you'll learn

Caregiving During the Childbearing Year

Through talks, demonstrations and group work we will cover normal prenatal care, prenatal complications, labor, birth and postpartum. You will explore the basics of natural childbirth, study of the phases of midwifery care, and reflect on what you will bring to clients from your own unique life experience.

Birth Support

Get hands-on experience: learning birth support for laboring women, rebozo techniques, bengung belly binding, blood pressure, veinipuncture, hand maneuvers for delivering a baby, placenta encapsulation, VBAC support, labor support, deep listening and communication and so much more.

Choosing and Developing Your Career Path in Birth Work

You will also have the opportunity to ask all the questions you have had about midwifery and birth, the education and skills needed to become a midwife, childbirth educator, doula, lactation support person or a provider in your community of specialized birth provider. And we will deeply explore as a group, the integration of the birth-worker lifestyle into your own life circumstances.
