Greetings Family!  I’m so glad you’re here.

Thank you for your interest in this course!

Are you a modern-day Shiphrah; a midwife carrying on the tradition of medical support during pregnancy, birth, and postpartum?

Or are you a modern-day Puah; a birthworker skilled in the tradition of educational & physical support? 

Perhaps you are a parent-to-be, looking for some ancestral wisdom to navigate the uncertainty of childbirth and postpartum? 

Or maybe you are a student of culture, eager to research your own family’s birthways and history?

Either way, you are in the right place to continue learning and honoring the herbal, nutritional, hands-on rituals of our ancestors.

Why Rituals?  Why Now?

Rituals of reproduction and parenting have been implemented, passed on, and preserved, by people of African descent since time began. They carried these rituals to the Caribbean & the Americas when they traveled here before Columbus did.

Hundreds of years later, when European chattel slavers kidnapped them in massive numbers to the Americas, these skilled masters of birth traditions continued to use ancestral science to keep women and babies safe during birth & beyond. 

Ancestral science and ritual go hand-in-hand. 


This course will introduce you to birth & postpartum rituals 

rooted in the 5 senses, and also the 6th sense: 

Mysticism.

The entire reproductive cycle will be discussed, in relation to the rituals which correspond to each stage. Your sense of the miracles of conception, childbirth, and postpartum care will expand with each lesson. 

Although the course will be self-paced, group discussion and live interaction with me will be part of this course.

The course is for you, about you, and will be tailored to you. 

Get into it. 

Dig deep and be ready for new insights, revelations, and solidified commitment to creating thriving birth and postpartum rituals for yourself, your loved ones, and/or your clients.
