Birth work is soul work.

Birth work can be lonely and feelings of isolation are common. We need others. We long for community. Supporting birthing families is profound and hard. In this time of uncertainty and social distance, we all need a circle of fellow heartful professionals—now, more than ever.

The Transformed by Birth apprenticeship program includes:

This six-month online apprenticeship runs from October 2022 through March 2023. We gather three Thursdays a month at 10am PT/1pm ET through a LIVE, ONLINE classroom for 90-120 minute sessions. All sessions will be recorded for those who cannot gather live and stored in our online classroom.

  • A community of fellow special birth professionals to be part of your on-going support network.

  • Feel held in a sacred space to integrate personal and professional growth, with accountability for your personal development and growth as a birth professional.

  • Access to the Transformed by Birth framework to learn and apply new approaches that support your clients (and yourself) through periods of great transformation.

  • Small group cohorts to support deeper exploration, and a private Facebook group for apprentices only.

  • Four additional optional sessions each month including: Business Development Deep-Dive, Q&A/Case Study, Resilience Building, and More!

  • Direct access to Britta: via Telegram for questions and check ins (two formats: a whole group thread and a private thread to direct message as needed) One, 60-minute, 1-1 mentoring session with Britta

Heart, Head, and Hands

We center and ground each month around a specific theme and explore the month's theme from the perspectives of the heart (your personal growth), head (your business success), and hands (tactical, practical application of new skills)—one each week—taking the fourth week of the month for reflection, integration, and rest.
