Women We Got This!!

  • Women enjoy being in charge of their bodies & babies.
  • Women of healthy mind & sound spirit know what is best for them.
  • Many women find pregnancy to be an amazing opportunity to tune deeply into their body, & in turn into their baby.

After 10 moons of healthful preparation, patience & purity(or one's best attempt), birth becomes the catalyst for transforming from sacred pregnant vessel to empowered mother.

In Natural birth, mother is free to be guided by baby & divine spirit, to take full advantage of evolution & gravity.
She and baby will benefit greatly from traditional woman centered care & Chiropractic, When she is allowed to birth undisturbed she will do so with a deep sense of purpose.
When all is said & done, her respect for life will be profound, will be a source of great power & deepen her ability to love & be loved....
After all is not this what the conception-breastfeeding continuum is all about?

Warmly, Earth Lande
Transforming How You See Birth

The Heart of Birth

Women enjoy possibilities. Women enjoy choice.
Doulas are possibilities in action.

  • Doulas empower Mothers to not just be aware of choice but to cherish it.
  • The power of choice is long lasting.
  • It is the makings of the internal flame of faith, the foundation of Authentic Motherhood.

Ok, I know that sounds like a lot, but this concept of being an Authentic Mother, human being for that matter, has given me clarity and courage in putting my dreams into motion.

The Natural Birth Institute is ReBirthing in 2008, with a deeper sense of purpose. Transforming how YOU see birth through action, art, workshop, conference, support,activism and of course Love ....

I was recently featured in the California Association of Midwives official quarterly , Fall 2007(www.californiamidwives.org). I was interviewed about the Good Birth Keeper Doula program.
I stressed the need to bring intimacy and privacy into birth by empowering women(pregnant and doulas) with not only choice in theory but choice in action. I also made clear to the reader that Natural Birth is the right of all women not just the one's with access to all the other genres of life where your bank account balance REALLY does warrant what you do and do not have access too.

That is why the certified Good Birth Keeper Doula Program is FREE, YES FREE to all women 18 and under. Please return to my blog to read more about my latest education project with teen mothers and fathers. I taught the first in a series last October 2007 called

The seeds for a bountiful 2008 have been sowed and now ,with you, we meditate, cultivate, demonstrate, do what we need to embrace the transformative power of childbirth.
