Attention all lovers of gentle birth! Check this out!!!

Gentle Birth Doula Workshop
March 12 - 19, 2012

Participation by doulas in today's maternity care is one of the greatest improvements in the care of childbearing women over the past century. The demand for doulas is increasing around the world. We are glad to welcome you to this exciting, rapidly growing profession.

In this workshop, you will learn to care for women, men, babies and families at this most sacred time in their lives - pregnancy, labor, birth, and breastfeeding.

This DONA approved Birth Doula Workshop will be taught by one of the most experienced doula trainers in the world, Debra Pascali-Bonaro, LCCE, CD(DONA) with special sessions with Guerilla Midwife, Ibu Robin Lim, CPM and midwife Katherine Bramhall from the Bumi Sehat Birth Center.

Seven days, not only to learn, but to also nurture your spirit! It is the time to come and immerse yourself in the gentle, loving, heart-opening energies of Bali.

The Birth Doula Workshop covers all of the basics of doula care before, during and immediately after childbirth. The workshop has been approved by DONA International and counts toward two steps toward certification (Parts 1 & 2).

Workshop and accomodations take place at the exquisite Swasti Eco Cottages in Ubud Bali with incredible service and amenities.

Who should participate?
Those who take the workshop do not need a professional background, but should have the following: fascination with pregnancy, childbirth, and newborn babies; a desire to work with women or couples during this most meaningful and demanding time in their lives; emotional maturity, stamina, and reliability.
