Beatrice

The training we did with you this month felt more organic, welcoming and inclusive than any other learning experience I have ever had! I feel so much gratitude and release after our time together. Our weekends have also left me feeling empowered and confident to approach the possibility of becoming a mom. You have been a wonderful and inspiring model and I hope to carry some of your energy with me to parents wherever I go and look forward to the next time I will get to learn with and from you! With Gratitude

Hannah

Thank you so much for your inspirational kindness and wisdom throughout the course. I truly inspired and excited to get started on my doula journey and I feel privileged to have been able to share this journey with so many other women.

Keira

Thank you so much for such a wonderful two weekends, I'll cherish them forever. Thank you for holding space for us to begin our transition into a doula and I must say, I felt like I had come home. I learned so much about the world, myself, birth, women and the list goes on. I will be forever grateful.

Jodi

Thank you for helping me heal. I learned so much that I can take forward. I am leaving with love in my heart and my new sisters. 

Julie

Thank you. You made me see myself as more connected than I have for a very long time.

Best course ever! Full of love, courage and abundant hope! Highly recommend to any human being who wants to increase their capacity to love.

Amanda

What an inspirational course. You have taught me so much personally and professionally. You reminded me about so many important values in life and through this we can learn and pass on our love and care to our fabulous 'super women' that we will have the honour of serving.

Sophie

What an amazing five days I have had! I have learned so much, not only about being a doula, but about myself and my passions. I can't wait to get started with my journey and I am so grateful for the love and support you have given me and for the other wonderful women I have met.

Besides all your knowledge, peacefullness, I love the way you work with your hands, I found it very beautiful!

Thank you for opening my eyes to choice, something I so sorely missed out on in all my births...a truly inspirational woman who nurtures women to grow into the best doulas they can be. Thank you for everything.

Thank you for being my doula through this process. You love and support are undeniable...you've built my confidence and I will always be grateful for that.

Thank you for this Developing Doulas experience. I don't know how you do it without ever appearing tired - 5 days of intense training, never once did I feel bored, tired or left wanting to say more! I was drawn to this course with you after feeling warmth and nurturing vibes off your video...thank you for opening up the magical doorways to a new world.

Wow, what a rollercoaster of emotions you have taken us on! I thought I already knew what kind of doula I wanted to be, but you've opened my eyes to other ways of doulaing and given me so much to think about. 
I loved the way you drew us together on the first day. You created such a safe space for us to share our experiences and ideas.

Bethia

Maddie, thank you for the so very well thought out way in which you have presented all of this wonderful information. For me, the variety of visuals, role-plays, brainstorms and discussion backed up by the papers I have to take away means that I have been able to sit here with my ears wide open and a receptive brain!
Your fostering of community and peer support is a blessing in an all too segregated society. I so look forward to developing on now in my doulaing skills.

Fiona

The course has been so enlightening and I hope your wonderful energy will flow through all who are lucky enough to come on the Doula journey with you.”

Farah

Thank you so much for such amazing information, wisdom, knowledge and stories.  It has been an absolute honour to have had you and Maddie as our doula sisters.  I have learnt so much about myself and others.

Karis

This has been an amazing experience, I cannot begin to put into words how beautiful and inspiring this course has been.  Indira you are beautiful teacher, your grow calmness, enthusiasm and a real passion for the Doula world.  I could have not asked for a better teacher, and I will carry my amazing experience with me for the rest of my life.

Sara

Coming from an individual who has neither been present at a birth nor given birth yet, this course, experience and education has not only taught me, inspired me, made me question and reflect on myself, my background and my future outlook but it has also opened up my eyes and senses to so much more than life, and birth. 

Tracy

Dear Maddie, Thank you for helping me realise what I am...Thank you for helping me find my tribe and for being part of it. I'm so excited to be a part of this wonderful community. 

Christine

Dearest Lovely Maddie, Thank you so much for allowing me to be part of this tremendous, awe-inspiring journey. At long last I feel I belong. I have found my true path, my true vocation and along the way made some beautiful friends. 

Hannah

Maddie, 

How to write all that's going on in my head? I came expecting to learn the practicalities of doulaing. I never expected what I did get - permission to just 'be'. To be myself and be OK with that. To be with amazing, passionate women who will hold you up. To discover a whole new journey into finding my purpose and what will bring me joy and fulfillment. 
I leave exhausted, refreshed, open, renewed, passionate and ready. 

Claire

Dear Maddie, 

Thank you a million times for changing my life in the best way possible and introducing me to my tribe! From this day forward I will be the best form of myself.
