"It’s not often that I walk away from a training and say “people need to do this training!”, in fact it never has happened. But I was so blown away by the Mindful Birth course, trainers and most importantly the research that has gone into it. Funny thing is, I don’t and won’t be having my own children. The mindful birth program was also a healing process for me from my own personal trauma. I had completely forgot about the power of sisterhood in life. Since this course, I have been able to bring back what I have learned to Europe, and hold space for my sisters in yoga classes. "
