Parents Don't Need Fixing,

They Need More Support.

We believe that when new parents feel acknowledged, resourced, and a sense of belonging, their health and well-being can truly flourish. 

We don't just believe it, we know it.

That’s why we teach others the skills they need to facilitate weekly gatherings to support parents in the early months.

Because right now, there simply isn’t the village support we all need to raise newborns and small humans…

So we’ve got to create it!

Add parent & baby classes as a second stream of income.

Birthworkers, postpartum care providers and village tenders can easily add in local parent and baby groups after our course.

It's not only a full course in how to facilitate parent and baby groups, it's also a full curriculum and business framework so you don't have to reinvent the wheel.

We offer models of sliding scale, pay it forward, fiscal sponsorships, how to add these groups to registries, employer-funded creative benefits, crowdfunding, local community funding, trades, and more.

Student Reviews

"The course is thorough. From it’s aesthetics to abstract thinking of heart, purpose and vision, to the nuts and bolts"

"This course has been the best one I have taken in throughout all of my birth work training and education.'

"The course has been meaningful to me in more ways than I imagined. I didn’t realize how empowering it would be."
