Birth Cartographer Training Online
Discover the ways of The Birth Cartographer, and develop practical tools to create an environment that leads to informed, supported and confident birthing.
This revolutionary approach to birth preparation is so stunningly simply to implement, and yet extraordinarily powerful.
Are you ready to boldly go where no birth plan has gone before?
The Birth Map is the creation of Catherine Bell - a Mother of four, who trained as a doula and breastfeeding educator in order to reclaim the knowledge that is our birth right. In observing that standard maternity care means women's reasonable expectations are considered unrealistic, she sort to bridge the gap. The birth plan, a tool intended to give agency and aid communication, was falling short. Catherine developed a new tool, building on the intent of the birth plan, working within the context of standard care to help women to unleash the power they hold within by giving them the means to take responsibility. From here, she saw that maternity care providers were just as eager to see this gap closed: and Birth Cartography evolved. Birth Cartography gives care providers the foundation to build relationships based in respectful maternity care , with effective communication in order to create an environment for informed decision making.
