Rhea Dempsey
Birthing Wisdom

birth attendant training

Through time and across cultures, birthing wisdom has always brought forward women who feel drawn to working with birthing energy; women whose experiences open them to the transformational possibilities of birthing; women whose heart’s calling is to offer support to birthing women.

This nine-month course seeks to honour and support this heart’s calling.

‘I would like to take the opportunity to formally thank you Rhea. Sitting in the circle with you this year has been a great honour and an absolute pleasure. I have learned a lot about myself and also much about the multi-dimensional aspects of woman. These have been invaluable to me. I am appreciative of your life’s work, and know that you have planted much goodness and integrity, beauty and wisdom in every sharing and teaching seed you have planted deep within the hearts of those that have been awakened to the Birthing Wisdom you provide’ — Simone

‘Rhea’s information about wild cards, circles of influence, connection with instincts, archetypal forces, ego dissolution, bio-psycho-social influences, functional, purposeful pain, embracing the intensity and hearing the training groups births and journeys have all helped me piece together mind-body connections. The complex facets of birthing women are a never-ending pool of curiosity and wonderment to me’ — Mary
