Eneyda and I are pleased to invite you to our Spring 2023 Conference. Our small events provide sanctuary where you will find refuge for your heart, mind, and spirit. Besides an incredible learning experience, you will find camaraderie and care that birth practitioners lavish on each other. Our small groups make it easy to make new friends. We will repeat what we did last time, which is for each person to tell us how they were called to midwifery or birth. We will sprinkle these talks throughout the conference. It’s a great way to get to know each other.
We plan our classes to be exceptional, interactive, and hands-on, so you come away with body memory and are able to use, for example, rebozo techniques when you want or need them. This is a unique opportunity to experience a supportive environment while filling your whole being with extraordinary learning. We welcome you to join us.
