So heres some more practical information..

               We are apprentices of life, learning from the land and the wise and varied women we will live with, this is a chance to get back to our true selves to create ceremony, keep traditional and new skills alive whilst still keeping time to cultivate our instincts.
A group sharing a passion to recreate birth for the next generation….

On a practical level what will this mean?

 We welcome 7 families/women to our community for a cycle of 4 seasons from October till mid june.

Through the Autumn, we will prepare for Winter, be inspired by Spring and be tropical for Summer…………sharing the passion to create a new paradigm for birth in Europe.

Our area is a diverse mix of many who have decided to live a more simple and green lifestyle. There is a Steiner school and a wonderful free school close by.

Orgiva has been dubbed the ‘new age capital of Europe’ so the range of activities is immense,  pottery to tantric dancing, all possible here!

Our students can choose to live on a shared piece of land nearby the school or to live in local accomadation, which averages at around 350e month.

If you choose to live on the community field life will be close to nature, close to each other in a structure of your own. We have a beautiful 6m geodesic dome with Kitchen burner and sofa! Water from the spring is a 20min walk or close drive…. There is no electricity, nor WiFi.  Cooking together, gathering & chopping wood, living simply, helping create a community garden, enjoying freezing mornings.…….. not forgetting the challenges of living so close brings!

It is a very beautiful place, lots of parties and fair amount of wild things going on lawless some say encouraging the bravery we need to be birthkeepers.

We look at:

  • The history of midwifery and what it means to be a post modern midwife.
  • On going basic study of anatomy and physiological birth.
  • Intensive course to enable you to run birth preparation course.
  • Politics of birth.
  • Ethics,law and human rights in childbirth
  • Out of the ordinary..looking at breech, twins and other skills we need to support our practice.
  • Running a community practice the highs and lows
  • Post birth care.
  • Breast feeding.
  • Herbal medicine.
  • Shiatsu course.
  • Taste of kinesiology, homeopathy, acupuncture.
  • Hypnobirthing.
  • Weekly sharing circle.
  • Lots more random amazing stuff to do!
  • We ask each student to prepare a personal project to be presented in June.

We will work together to further the changes in birth across the world, we ask students to take an active role in developing the school and working to create the centre during work days….. a helping hand when we welcome elective students and fundraising to keep the school growing.

You will play an active role in the Da-a-luz bumps and babies group.

It will be an intense but fun!


To come to be with us we ask 2000€ for 9 month session this covers all teaching a spot in the field to camp, you need to think what you would live in we do not provide your shelter. We ask 5€ a week peppercorn rent to help with maintaining the infrastructure of the field.

A donation will be agreed each week for communal shopping for the kitchen (8 euros a week) fruit and veg is really cheap. Health food can be ordered wholesale. For lunch and dinner teaching days, Monday till Wednesday,  the rest of the week is worked out so everyone free do be xx

We hope that this fee will make it viable for everyone. if you would like to be with us but feel that money is a barrier we do offer one volunteer place, it is really hard work as you are studying and running around like a nutter but we are also open to suggestions if you have a particular skill. 

Yes you will have to support yourselves for a year also but no one will starve!
We will look after each other……..and a possible lesson in poverty is essential to every midwife as we certain will never be rich from our work!


You will be proud of a beautiful body of work you have created and you will have a network of brave a wonderful folk beside you….we welcome students to stay with us longer to gain more insight and the possibility to attend births with our practice.

There are many questions that need to be answered so do ask them……….
Fire away….

We hold interviews in May and ask that you visit us then to meet face to face and to feel the place, before we commit to each other

Blessings may we journey together…
