A Sacred Model of Birth teaches us to serve our feminine body with the wisdom and intelligence of Mother Nature during pregnancy and birth.
Feeling pulled to working with women in a supportive way during pregnancy or birth?
Do you feel like you want to connect and support women to have an empowering and sacred birth?
Do you want to connect with the Feminine wisdom guiding a woman's body during birth and pregnancy?
Do you feel that gentle and respectful birth has the power to change the world and you want to be a part of the change?
But you don't trust other medical trainings to give you the type of presence and training you really want and feel women deserve.
Or you feel your current practice is lacking in the Sacred Feminine wisdoms and approach?
Would you like to:
Learn the sacred mysteries of our Feminine Wisdom during pregnancy and birth?
Do you feel birth is a Sacred Event and women deserve to be treated respectfully and gently at this time?
Most midwifery training is medicalised and governed by medical protocols and politics that take the power and sacredness away from Women during this important time.
This training is a reminder of what we inherently know within our Female body.
When you take Mother Nature as your teacher, you understand the biological needs of a woman during pregnancy and birth.
This is the model we need to remind ourselves to serve and support women (and ourselves) for safe and connected pregnancies and births.
What do you get from the training?
How does the training work?
Thank you for all your efforts Gauri! For being so intimate in your sharing. For putting forward Women's health the way you do and for being the most supportive human being I know when it comes to birth, motherhood and postpartum. I have never met anyone else like you and I am so honoured to have you in my life. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Meet your expert
My first home birth changed my life. I was a medical student at the time. I soon realised women coming to the hospital for births were not receiving the same kind of gentle, loving and incredible birth experience that I had.
I set about changing that and for the last 16 years I have been active in the maternity rights, gentle birth field in practice and in many workshops and talks.
I completed my medical degree and hospital training and then went on to shadow my homebirth midwife and learn from her.
In doing that I managed to unlearn the medical conditioning and open to a sacred way of birthing.
I have been creating this course in my heart and mind for 10 years now. In that time I have continued practicing as a homebirth doctor in India and South Africa, opened my own women's healthcare practice, studied and practice herbalism and run women circles.
I have come to know women are magnificent and it is like our healing journey and challenges are nudging us to coming into a beautiful awareness of ourselves through womb wisdom.
I practice womb wisdom as medicine and am delighted to start teaching this course - A Sacred Model of Birth.
Be the change you wish to see in the Birth World.
For many years I thought "Who am I to teach a course like this?". But the gnawing in my heart and soul remained.
I realised - I am the perfect person to teach this course because I have lived and walk both worlds. I still practice supporting homebirths, I am chatting with mums and birthworkers around the world daily.
I know the politics of medical births and I have stood among them while deeply holding space for the Sacred Birth model.
You too may think, who am I to do this course? But it is exactly YOU who the world is needing now.
We are needing Women to stand true to their beliefs and instead of waiting for the medical fraternity to "let them" be birthkeepers - we need women to step into that role.
Our mothers are waiting for you!
You may sign up now for next consort starting March 2023

From Gauri's course I have learnt how to understand and support postpartum women through a deep and global approach. I really love how she teaches on different levels so we can make connections. She teaches knowledge for the brain and the heart. That's what makes the course so special.

Are there refunds?
No refunds. Options to pay monthly for the classes you attend or yearly. Other options are service exchanges.
Will I get a certification?
I will award you a certificate of attendance. We are discussing the various certification options and recognition by certain boards of health education. It may be module based recognition as well as course recognition. These may also differ country to country and state to state.
Will I be able to register as a midwife?
No. The practice of midwifery is regulated differently in different countries.
Will there be replays?
Replays will be available for 2 weeks. Then they will be edited and used for recurring course module availability and course completion in the future.
How will practical learning work?
In some areas we have an experienced midwife who can host hands-on learning. We are forming small groups where students can come together in close by and central places so students can practice clinical skills.
Where can I attend births?
This will be discussed in the course as to forming an apprenticeship relationship with a midwife who can work with us as a preceptor.
One last thing,
This course is a pilot course of standing deeply in the Feminine codes and womb wisdom by a medical doctor in a Sacred Midwifery training.
My wish is for every women with an interest and a strong desire to access sacred and biological understandings of our amazing body as a reflection of Mother Nature, during birth and pregnancy.
I believe we can no longer wait for the medical institutions to give recognition to the ancestral and traditional wise women ways of supporting women.
The best we can do is Be the Change we Wish to See and live in alignment to our calling and our birthright.
We need to take birth back into the hands of the Womb holders and create gentle and sovereign birth opportunities for every women.
This course has very little limitations and rules as I am creating it to serve the women who are bringing back the womb wisdom as medicine in our own lives and those women we care for.
