Elective with Da-a-luz October 8th- 18th October 2018.

The October placement is an inspiring look at what is needed to serve women and families as a post modern midwife….

The first week of our full time course you will be with our new students and the many teachers who come to welcome them in, last year we enjoyed midwives from 6 countries!

Teaching is 10am till 5pm Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday: 21 hours of intense learning. Friday we enjoy women circle.

In the first week we concentrate on the history of midwifery, the present culture of birth and who we need to be to serve best, including some lovely self care which is so very important if we are to sustain a healthy relationship with our work.

The second week we will look at more practical aspects, the magical uterus the most powerful muscle in the body, how to run an antenatal class and our nurturing ‘ Essence of birth’ workshop to send you back into your workplace with a little Da-a-luz magic.

Here’s some feed back from a lovely Italian student..

“Meeting Vanessa and the other beautiful Da-a-luz teachers has been like opening a tiny secret door hidden in plain sight. I felt welcome and cocooned by natural wisdom and willing to share with us how she works, with no jealousy, encouraging us to do the same, being brave, true, loving and celebrating mothers and motherhood, stressing out how important is what we do because, yes, birth is a social and political matter and through a birth revolution we can change our world.”


On a practical level:

Flying to Malaga or Granada the bus service here is great but do check times.

This is an excellent experience and we have a big warm dome to chill in the evenings.
