I have been compiling this body of work over the last 20+ years as a bodyworker, midwife, and prenatal yoga teacher. I use many of the techniques every day in my healing practice and you can apply them in your birth practice right away, too.
Deepening your anatomy understanding and watching/practicing proven techniques will inform your touch and fast track your effectiveness and confidence.

Recommended reading, travelers resources, and all the other details will be provided after registration.   CEU's are in the works!
