Childbirth in Japan

Tokyo here we come! We were in Japan in October and amazing does not begin to describe how much we enjoyed the country, people, and the food. We're headed back in April 2011 for a Childbirth Educator training workshop and a Doula Labor Support training workshop.

We will be working with the Japan Association of Doulas and Educators (JADE). Please find workshop information at their website

If you happen to be in Tokyo, please join us. How wonderful that birth has it's own common language that women speak no matter where they are.

Midwifery Program

Imagine all the possibilities if we had more midwives! Midwives are low cost. They use few interventions, yet provide high quality and empowering maternity care, helping women transition into motherhood.

I wish all women could know how wonderful the care of a midwife is. Midwife-to-Be offers a wonderful opportunity to become a midwife through an online course and gain experience through trips to the Dominican Republic.

There are many pathways to become a midwife. This program is not expensive and may be a good fit for you.
