“When you sit with a woman in labour, allow yourself to become soft” ~ Ruth Ehrhardt, True Midwifery
? So much of what we are taught nowadays when providing care to those who are pregnant and birthing is about DOING. Even the word DOULA has the word DO in it!
? In this first collaboration between True Midwifery and Doula Douce, we invite you to spend a day taking care of yourself, one another, and to get a sense of ???? ?? ????? ???? ?? ?????? ‘???? ?????’ ?? ? ????? and providing the basic needs for pregnant and labouring women and people.
?? ???? ???????? ???? ???????:
? Song
? Deep listening and sharing
? Stillness
? Embodied practice
? Creating a day of spaciousness for ourselves as birthkeepers
???? ???????? is the mother of 4 home-birthed children, a South African traditional midwife, the author of a book called The Basic Needs of a Woman in Labour (which has been translated into 15 different languages), and a birth and midwifery teacher.
She is the daughter, granddaughter, and niece of midwives, so it seems this work was in many ways predestined from birth.
Ruth has an innate love and trust for birth, women’s bodies, and babies’ intelligence. In her teaching and work, she mainly focuses on guarding and protecting the environment for pregnancy and birth, as opposed to guiding or facilitating the actual birthing process.
