Birth & Becoming

Available Services

When the baby is born
So too is the Mother

Welcome to The Birth Temple

This is the Temple of The Mother 

A sacred Rite of Passage through the portal of Birth 

The threshold She will walk to traversing her journey of Maiden to Mother

Birth is a sacred event as we know yet Postpartum and how we Hold the Mothers is how they in turn can hold the baby

Birth & Becoming 

An online Holistic Birth & Postpartum Preparation journey

This combines traditional wisdom, ancient teachings and modern practices to prepare Mothers and her village for the portal of Birth and her journey into her Becoming Mother.

Birth is a sacred event yes, we must also honor the transition of the woman's Rite of Passage that she walks in her postpartum period 

The foundation and pillars of this course are created to support, nurture and create space for the care and community that the Mother will require so that she can flourish and heal. These are based on innate wisdom that if the Mother has the village and safety created, she can focus on the needs of her baby as these vital support people will hold her in this process of rebirthing herself in between worlds


Practices that will allow the physical body to heal after birth


Connecting to breath, sound and movement for birth & hypnobirthing techniques

Connection and Community

Cultivating the village and wider whanau to support, assist and allow this sacred transition in slow intentional planning for postpartum

What if we looked at postpartum depression and anxiety and questioned where the preparation and support were to hold our mothers. 
So they could honor the most powerful transition of their life.

How we journey

We meet weekly over 6 weeks via zoom and these are in our Mighty Networks private online space, off social media.

All call recordings are here if you need to watch the replay and cannot attend the live calls. 

All course material, workbooks and meditations can be accessed here. 

You will need to set up Mighty Networks an App which is free to do so

Your partner or birthing support person is welcome to attend this course with you. 

In week 6 there is a Women's Circle call and I preface now that this is only for Women to attend.
