Herbal Medicine for Birth Support
The next course begins in Winter 2023. Click below to be notified when applications open.
ONLINE herbal education for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC).
In this 3-Month journey, we will be learning different herbal medicines that can be used to support people through their birth journey. Every week we will be joined by a birthworker in the community that will share their journey with plant medicine as well as ways they use plants when supporting gestating folks.
Our goal is to help you feel supported, grounded, and equipped with basic herbal knowledge to help you care for pregnant clients and loved ones.
Only open to BIPOC Doulas & Birthworkers. The course is offered via Zoom live stream for full participation.
WHEN: 5 sessions 10am - 1pm PST
*Payment plans and accommodations/support are definitely available for folks that need it.
This is a Queer and Trans friendly space. We use gender neutral language when addressing the entire class. We are also super thoughtful with people's pronouns. We ask, we remember, and we respect the pronouns people use.
About your facilitator
Hi, my name is Berenice. I am a queer herbalist who was born in Tenochtitlan (Mexico City) and grew up on Tongva lands (El Monte, CA) since I was 3 years old. My mother was my first herbal teacher. She raised my two sisters and I with herbal medicine. The classes are informed by my mother's teachings and the long relationship I've had with plants.
In class, my facilitation style is very hands on, collective, and engaging. I share what I know and I am also invested in providing a mutual learning experience where people are encouraged to share their own knowledge and contribute what they know.
