Thank you for joining Birth Coach Method’s 2nd-anniversary celebrations!
This free webinar is my way of celebrating the new approach I am committed to lead in the field of childbirth support – Birth Coach Doulas. It is a transformation in doula’s role definition, in our scope of practice, and of our core competencies. I chose to center this webinar on the famous allegory Who Moved My Cheese by Spencer Johnson because it is a beautiful allegory about change and our reactions to change. The allegory of childbirth as our professional maze and the different types of birth experiences as the cheese we find in it has enabled me to describe the historical changes that our field went through, and the reactions of the different agents in the maze to these changes. It also symbolizes the transformation I believe we should all strive for – transforming the doula from the warrior and the protector to the coach is inevitable in order for doulas to become a legitimate and welcomed support figure in the field of childbirth, as well as a service accepted and spread among all birthing mothers.
To Healthy Births on Earth!
