Pregnancy and birth is a sacred rite of passage, with all the ups and downs. But in modern cultures, we are forgetting the initiation rooted in birth, disconnecting from the magic and turning away from ancestral knowledge. Pardis is here to help you to trust your own thinking and your intuition/ inner voice because you are the creator: Your body, your birth!
It is time to turn the tides on holistic birthing practices and re-remember what has been forgotten. Taking control of choice and your own path, choosing to work with a doula as well as a mid-wife brings us back to a deeper source of woman-centred knowledge and trust.
This doula course is for a small group of women. Creating connection and community with others going through similar processes as you is a potent concoction for healing and growth. Having a doula course for groups gives the opportunity for any pregnant person to actually have a doula without having to pay a whole lot of money. This means more of us are then able to have the emotional support and tools of a doula in this very important transition.
This course is for all mothers of all constellations. The aim of this workshop and the work of a doula, is for you and your birth partner to feel close and connected in your cooperation and experience. For you the mother, it is important to have absolute power and say about your body, before during and after birth. In order to have that power, we are going to train you in having close connection to your magical womb intuition and your child.
