A Personal and Professional Retreat 

Just for Doulas

Mentored by PAM ENGLAND
MAY 28 – June 1
4:00 pm to 4:00 pm
Bosque Conference & Retreat Center



As a doula, you have a front-row seat to hearing and witnessing birth stories even as they are unfolding. Not only are you a trusted listener, but you and your client have the distinct advantage of time; you can spend an hour to talk through a birth story over a cup of tea. The story your clients are already telling themselves in pregnancy may become the “seed” for the story they will live in labor and tell themselves after birth. After birth, continue making a lasting difference by using the Birth Story Medicine Process to guide parents and fellow-doulas in transforming their feelings and beliefs about what happened. 

                 How many times have you heard a client or a fellow-doula tell a birth story and you’ve not known what to say?

Prepare for your vocation as a birth story mentor-doula; experience and learn:

  • The “Shell in the Labyrinth”
  • Discover the hidden healing in one of your own birth stories
  • Ripples from the First Birth Story
  • A heart meditation
  • Witness trauma: Rituals of Return and healing for doulas
  • Your new power prenatal appointments
  • The birth story your clients bring to their birth
  • Birth story in the body: Restoring health and harmony after a traumatic birth
  • Lessen birth shock and emotional trauma
  • Birth story as a mythic, heroic journey

On our breaks, discover the tranquil beauty of the Paseo del Bosque Trail nestled on the banks of the Rio Grande, a stone’s throw from our beautiful Gathering Room.

Share Our Vision:
