Join this 4 Part, Online, Self Paced E-Course   

Burn out and compassion fatigue are one of the MAIN reasons why birth workers leave or are unsatisfied in their profession.  The studies and statistics show it!  If you are a current birth worker: a midwife, student midwife, prenatal or postpartum doula, birth assistant, labor and delivery nurse, then I believe you need this course!  If you have never experienced burn out this course will help keep you going strong.  If you have felt burnt out then this course will help put you on a path towards thriving in your personal and professional life!

Knowledge is power! 

Your practice will be transformed by bringing light to the theoretical work of burn out, compassion fatigue, and post traumatic stress COMBINED with the inner work of boundaries, self care, self-compassion and self awareness.

Invest in yourself and see the ripple effects in your personal and professional life!

In order to show up for others we need to cultivate a solid understanding of our own triggers, barriers and stories of why and how we don't always show up for ourselves!  Birth work is beautiful and intense: the schedule, the physical nature, and the emotional aspects.  This work is important to be the best we can be for both ourselves and our clients.

Testimonials

"Transforming Your Professional Birth Practice" was more than I expected.  Julie gave me meaningful questions to ask myself; digging deeply into the "why" I work the way I do.  She provided relevant exercises to stretch my boundaries of how I can run my birth practice and ultimately this course has led me to start restructuring how I approach my professional life in general"
