Women's Work 2.0

Group and Private Mentorship and Continuing Education

You know supporting women is your calling. 

You also know that in our current society, supporting women in birth can be complicated. 

Maybe you are...

  • A doula who feels burnt out from her work
  • A childbirth educator who is *tired* of teaching about hospital intervention
  • A healer - yoga teacher, spiritual coach, massage therapist...- who knows she can serve women more fully
  • A mother who feels called to work with other women but doesn't know exactly where to start
  • A healthcare professional who is invested in providing more holistic women-centered care

Learn to navigate your practice with integrity.

Join our Summer 2021 Group Mentorship Cohort. 16-weeks of small-group mentorship including twice-monthly meetings for lectures, discussions, and small group coaching.

Eight Mondays, 12-2 EST, on Zoom ~ Jun. 28, Jul. 12, Jul. 26, Aug. 9, Aug. 23, Sept. 6, Sept. 20, Oct. 4

You know serving women is your calling. You also know that in our current society, supporting women in birth can be complicated.

It could be that you are feeling burnt out from doula work...

Or frustrated that your childbirth classes center around hospital intervention...

Or unclear about how *exactly* you want to serve your women.

Become the change we need in birth.

I work with intelligent women who know birth is a physiological process, who are motivated to serve their communities, and who want to build a sustainable and satisfying career in birth.
