    As an experienced doula, I appreciated the way Catherine presented the concepts in this training. The sections were broken down well into theory and practise so that I feel confident incorporating this information into my work with my clients. As an online workshop, the day was ran well, with sufficient breaks and keeping to time.

    As a Childbirth Educator and Matrescence Coach, this training was invaluable. The words preferences and wishes never sat well with me so to hear Catherine talk about the power of language and how important it is for Birth Mothers to reclaim their power, I knew I was in the right training. The birth Cartography training has given me a tool to deeply support my clients in making informed decisions and facilitate healthy conversations with their caregivers. Thank You Catherine for brining this to the world

    Catherine provides a different approach to birth preparation through the Birth Map. As a midwife I recommend the learning program Catherine offers to empower, engage and facilitate women during their pregnancy and birth. Thank you for a wonderful day of sharing knowledge and exploring The Birth Map to enhance my practice and benefit women in their birthing journey

    Catherine has created something brilliant! Even after spending thousands of dollars on my doula training, this is by far the most helpful thing I have done for my doula business!
    A beautiful day and highly recommend this for anyone who is considering it!
