The International College of Spiritual Midwifery

As a woman's life traverses its many directions and turning points, including sexuality, ovulation, menstruation, conception, pregnancy, birth, lactation, motherhood, menopause and grandmotherhood, pathways are created to allow for awareness, growth and transformation.
Spiritual Midwifery reclaims a woman's power in her own process. It allows women the chance to remember how to listen to their bodies, and trust in their ability to respond to this new intelligence. In this, a deep inner knowing pervades and strength is brought to all undertakings.

Our aim is to provide the opportunity for women to undertake the journey to freedom, through information and making fully informed choices. To achieve this goal we hold radically innovative seminars, workshops and individual sessions and provide access to internationally recognized teachers and practitioners
