Electives with Da-a-luz
Placements are an inspiring look at what is needed to serve women and families and be joyful in our work..soaking up sunshine and wisdom in the beautiful mountains.
Teaching is 10am till 5pm Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday: 18 hours of intense learning. Friday we enjoy women circle.
You will learn alongside our full time students, we run four electives a year, the first in October will look at what it is to be a post modern midwife and an inspiring module looking at what truly physiologically birth is with independent midwife Deb Rhodes.
Our spring and summer placements are now full but if you would like to be register with us we can let you know if a place comes up.
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. The direct bus leaves centre of town ( 15 mins from airport on train) at 15.00.
car rental is cheap and does give you the opportunity to explore this amazing place.
We ask everyone to arrive on or the day before Monday 4th June as we will start at 10am it is important to us you attend all sessions on time.
