"I gained not only deeper insights into Birth Art, but my own self awareness and growth. This course is such a compliment to the mentor doula course. Actually I feel it's been more than just a compliment . My understanding of the material has largely expanded because of the course. I am grateful I got the chance to take it. I have always loved art but it's opened up so much more than even I was aware of."

"This course was amazing. It helped me both personally and professionally. Personally, I was able to explore my own birth experience and connect to the experience in a different way. Professionally, I watched my clients come to new and profound realizations about themselves, their children, their emotions, and their experience of the birth process. It was a powerful experience."


"This course impacted the way I work with clients, family and myself. I find greater freedom and hope. Personally this gives me structure and guideposts as well as the ability to not take on other people's problems to resolve them. My clients and family also feel better heard and are able to find solutions to their own problems."

"This ancient map - the map of the Birth Warrior - is not a simplistic road map to achieving a perfect birth or any other specific outcome. Instead, it guides you across countless inner thresholds, over unforeseen hurdles, beyond your edge, and into the unknown and uncharted territory. This map shows you ways to keep going - and to find your way 'home' again."
