“The explicit recognition and reaffirmation of the right of all women to control all aspects of their health, in particular their own fertility, is basic to their empowerment.” – United Nations Beijing Declaration, 1995
Traditional and indigenous midwives, birth keepers and healers have meticulously kept and passed down ancient wisdom from one generation to the next. This knowledge has been routinely cast aside by the medical model and women’s voices silenced. Now science is beginning to catch up with what wise women have always known about birth.
I serve as a bridge for those who wish to weave together scientific evidence and wise women ways.
As a birth keeper, I offer traditional birth consulting, collaboration, creative exploration, and mentoring for a changing birth paradigm. Please contact me to learn more about how I can support your pregnancy and birth experience.
