What is the difference between a Doula and a “Guardian” of the Birth?
Traditionally a doula’s role is viewed as a person assisting continually during labor and birth, providing emotional support, physical comfort measures and objective information to the couple so they can make informed decisions.
A “guardian”, as Barbara Harper and myself describe it, is not only an educator but is a person trained to energetically support the best possible outcome at birth. She knows, demonstrates and teaches empowering mind/body/spirit techniques to her clients and is able to utilize these powerful tools herself at the time of birth. She understands and can explain the nature of an entangled universe and the consequences it has on any relationship but especially between mom and baby and anyone present at birth.
The certification requires 150 hours with over 100 hours of live classroom training including 40 hours of residential (level 2).
Our focus is to facilitate a shift in consciousness and true healing in the future “guardian” as well as a deep understanding of the most cutting edge scientific information in the fields of perinatal neurology, physiology and psychology and quantum biology. The “guardian” is trained in multiple mind/body approaches for their own Inner Discovery and Self-Healing! Keep in mind that you can only assist another in reaching higher state of consciousness by clearing your on “stuff” and reaching that higher state of vibration yourself! That is what we are able to teach you in this unbelievable program!

Join this informational and informal call to listen, ask questions and receive information on how you can transform your relationship and experience with pregnant women in your birthing practices.
We hear over and over in our respective professional workshops and with pregnant couples – “If the information is out there that birth should be done in a different way, then why aren’t things changing?” or “don’t tell us what’s wrong with the system, tell us how to manage change.” or “no more philosophy, give us tools to use.”
That is precisely what participation in the Gentle Birth Guardian Workshop does – it give you hands on, experiential practice and tools to use to help prepare women to give birth blissfully, centered and in their own power. With a special emphasis on the consciousness of babies in the womb and immediately after, you will learn how to help mothers welcome their babies in a more connected way. Learn the art and science of “holding the space” for the mother and baby to do what they do best – birth undisturbed, whether that birth is in a hospital, a home, a birth center, an ocean or the side of a freeway. Discover your own inner power and intuition so you can help your client/patient do the same. Begin the healing process and become aware of- and transform what you bring “energetically” to each birth. Change your understanding of reality, your old beliefs and your expectations so that you can assist women in changing theirs. That’s when we begin to see real miracles in the birth place.
Intrested? Join the call this Friday morning. We’ll be recording it and probably post it here later for those who cannot attend at that time.
