WELCOME TO THE WISDOM OF BIRTH
Two weeks diving deep into Nature's biology and Sacred Wisdom of Birth with Dr Gauri and Reframing Women's Healthcare
Welcome Home, Sister
Welcome to our beautiful Soul Family where we come to unfold and deepen our values and consciousness around birth.
We are a few brave enough to stand up for the Sacred Model of Birth as Mother Nature has shown and shares with us through the language of listening, touch, and connecting. We need to keep the truth around the mystical, the spiritual, and the power of transformation that every new soul on Earth brings.
Birth is a healing portal.
It is not meant to be controlled in any way for it contains the very essence of the codes of life itself. We can never suppose to know this better,
I am here to serve Birth and in this way I bring you the Wisdom of Birth - how to access Her truths so your heart will forever be imprinted with the importance of connection and the wisdom to navigate this domain with integrity and accountability and deepest conscious awareness.
We need to learn to listen to the intelligence of Nature, so we can receive Womb Wisdom as Medicine, and serve Birth, Mother and Baby as Mother Nature intended.
This course will open up the Sacred intelligence of BIrth
- I am so excited to welcome you, deeper!

The Cosmological connection and sovereignty of the womb
with Rev. Mar Sophia
This talks about how our wombs are connected to the star system. You will get to know which stars are your womb ally.
You will know how to elevate your womb intelligence, Spiritually and cosmologically.
Our wombs are connected to the whole. We are holy and whole.
My name is Rev T Mar Sophia.
I am a Reverend, Teacher, and a Minister of God (Prime Source Creator). I do not subscribe to any dogma because, according to me God/Source is not a Religion.
I am a professional speaker, community leader, public commentator, accredited SAQA facilitator, and writer on diverse issues of sexuality and human relationships. I offer soul and spiritual coaching, ministerial work, training, courses, retreats, and mentorship on intimate and enriching personal development processes.
I come from a lineage of womb healers ( mother, Grandmother and Great Grandmother were all womb healers), a gift that runs very deep in my Matriarch. I took the operation of this gift further by studying and being affiliated with other international bodies, platforms, and people who are in the women/womb healing space. This has broadened my reach from being a local practitioner to also being an international practitioner and has also deepened the medicine I bring into my space.

Meet your host
Hi, I am Gauri
In my 3rd year of medschool I gave birth to my first son at home. This birth transformed my medical career. I had tasted the divine portal of connection and the Sacred channel of Mother Nature in Birth. I felt empowered, ecstatic, rebirthed.
When I completed my clinicals and witnessed the abuse and trauma at births I became a birth activist for maternity rights at birth.
6 years later, I had completed my required hospital training. I shadowed with a homebirth midwife to learn how to support a woman during a homebirth.
I have dedicated my work to serving women in the capacity of linking them to their own divine healing and autonomy to give Birth like a Goddess.
I have created a course called Sacred Model of Midwifery Training which bridges together the Sacred Wisdom of Birth with the wisdom of Mother Nature - deepening our tools of heart and hand to support women during birth with integrity and clarity.
This two-week intensive is born out of a need to dive deeper into what this means in meeting ourselves in this service.
Me personally, live in between India and South Africa with my husband and 2 sons.
