– Internationally accredited workshop with Anna Verwaal

October 2019


In this profoundly healing & transformational birth workshop for doulas, midwives, nurses, childbirth educators, birth related bodyworkers, prenatal yoga instructors, therapists, and current/future parents, you will learn how conception of the time in the womb and the birth experience become the blueprint for the rest of our lives, physically, psychologically and emotionally. Guaranteed to give you tremendous insights on a very personal level and teach you how to use this important information in your professional practice

Workshop Topics

  • Epigenetics and cellular memory of the conception, womb & birth experience

  • How prenatal emotional, physical & medical events affect us in life

  • How our earliest imprints shape beliefs and fears, can show up on a daily basis, and affect our relationships (IVF, twins, stress, disease, induction, vacuum, cesarean section, prematurity, NICU, etc)

  • The effects of prenatal and birth experiences on fertility, pregnancy, labor & birth and our work as birth providers/doulas

  • Helping ourselves, our clients and their babies heal from birth related beliefs, fears and trauma

  • How to help prevent birth related complications from happening 

  • How to prepare for a conscious pregnancy & birth experience as a care-provider, doula or future parent
