"The Doula training has been a deep experience of enrichment, joy and celebration of both myself as a woman and as a doula. I would, without hesitation, recommend it to anyone who is curious about deepening their understanding and experience of supporting women in birth! "
"Highly recommend studying with Mirabai Rose from The Birth Yurt, she is an amazing woman to learn from & holds a beautiful space for you to grow into the Doula that feels right for you. Mirabai has showed me how to really empower myself & how to support couples through the perinatal period. I am truly blessed to be one of Mirabai's students & I really honour the wonderful woman that she is."
"I have learnt so much, not just about what it means/needs to become a Doula, but, so much about myself - how I can & need to take care of myself, so that I am truly able to care for others. I have been given the opportunity to build a toolbox which enables me to better relate to others, including my children, who range quite considerably in age. I have learnt so many tools that I have been able to consciously utilise in my life to make it & my relationships better. Not only that, I have also been lucky enough to begin & travel my Doula journey, so far, with a group of beautiful, strong, talented & inspirational women, who have nurtured & supported me along the way. I can't begin to thank Mirabai enough for all of this & more. In her beautiful, gentle manner she has nurtured, supported, taught & quietly pushed me (even when I resisted) to learn & become someone who is present & feels not only for others, but, now also for myself".
"Doula training for me has been a life changing experience.. Whilst I've discovered so much about myself and still am, I've challenged my belief systems, supported women in many ways into motherhood, witnessed how powerful woman can be through birth; journeyed courageously with women to their most sacred space; gained deeper understanding of the value of what "holding a birth space" for women with awareness and stillness really means. Mirabai is an awesome mentor, with gratitude, thanks for your shared wisdom"
