About the event

NOTICE:  We will keep this group at 10 attendees max.  Due to limited spots available, registration is likely to close early.  Recommended that you pay for the deposit ticket, at least, to keep your spot.

This is a retreat style event. You will be pampered and spoiled while learning how to pamper families.  Your heart will be opened, healing will come in for any deep hurts you've sustained in life and the servant in you will be served and loved on for an entire weekend!  If you are NOT in need of a restful, peaceful, blissful experience in a heavenly location, this event is not for you.  :)

We will start with an evening reception with relaxing beverages and inviting music at a beautiful beach house.  Flowing through this sacred safe space will be vulnerability and openess.  You have come to do some inner-healing work and this is the foundation for the weekend.  Woven throughout the 3 days, you'll find lots of self-discovery, and acceptance for the amazing soul that you are!  We dig deep and uproot things that are standing in your way.  The weekend will finish with a gratitude ceremony and gift that you will take with you into this next phase of your life.

Imagine a fulfilling career supporting mothers through pregnancy, childbirth, and then with breastfeeding their newborn!  You can make such an impact on the world, and future generations!  Mothers crave this non-judgmental, nurturing support, and you bring your open heart to give it.  Maybe you find yourself naturally drawn to this kind of caring for others?  Now is the time to pursue those dreams and make doing this as your career, a reality!  You can do something so natural, while blessing your family financially.  There is no better way to fulfill your calling.

Your trainers have backgrounds in mental health and supporting birth workers through secondhand (aka witnessed) and personal traumas.  

Hilary is a supreme healing journey facilitator.  She has been a doula and maternal caregiver for over a decade and brings her compassionate support and guidance into every therapeutic setting.  Lessons from her own life experiences bring a vulnerability that allows others to open up and heal as well.

Anne has been a doula for over 27 years and her focus of study and certifications beyond birth-specifics include Guided Meditation, Art Therapy, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Neurolinguistic Programming, Sofeggio Scale Therapy among others.  Her gentle humor, hands-on teaching techniques and gripping story-telling will help you to integrate and remember the lessons that you can't learn from a book!

At this relaxing and fun workshop, we will focus on you!  We talk you through start to finish, how to find clients, secure contracts and support those families through every twist and turn to a happy end of your care.  We'll also teach you how to "exit interview" in a way that will bring in free, word of mouth marketing for you for years to come.  

During the weekend, we will participate in many individual and group activities:

  • Close your eyes and benefit from special birth-related aromatherapy as you learn about essential oils, 
  • Relax your body and your mind with new, self massage techniques,  
  • Drink detoxifying teas and nourish your body with vegetarian-friendly, healthy and low carb meals,
  • Think through your own trauma triggers and brainstorm ways to deal with difficult situations before you encounter them.  (This one might require tissues!)
  • Work on deeply transformative personal introspections about your own life calling, through art and voclaizations.  
  • Your perspective and ability to provide amazing service to your clients and prioritize self-care will come into balance.  You will practice gentle movement to keep your body awake and your mind alert.
  • Welcome new and unique techniques only taught in our workshops such as how to utilize the Hawaiian "Ha" or breathe of life in your daily practice.   
  • Light breakfast each day, snacks and healthy lunches also provided.  Dinner will be group contribution/on your own.
