The School of Shamanic Midwifery (SSM) is a Women’s Mysteries School for midwives and doulas, a gathering of wise women, a year long Earth based ‘religious’ experience. It will awaken in you a deeper connection to the cycles - the way of life - and enable in you a range of ancient and traditional skills and tools to serve women and the birth process. The School of Shamanic Midwifery is based in Australia and is given and co-ordinated by Jane Hardwicke Collings, Homebirth Midwife, Mother, Grandmother. Jane has apprenticed with many great teachers – Maggie Lecky Thompson, Blackbear James Harvey and the late Jeannine Parvati Baker. She brings the experience of 25 years of homebirths and shamanic practice together and, as requested, presents what she has learnt and commits to helping facilitate those who are interested on their journey toward being Shamanic Midwives.

The BKI filled the gaps that were missing in my midwifery, doula and counselling training. - Jan Gatti

I learned what it means to be a Birth Keeper, respecting a women’s life experiences, whatever they maybe, to help her be conscious of her journey so that her experience can be one of healing. Jenny Schellhorn

The BirthKeeper intensive (BKi) workshop is a journey into the role and responsibilities of everyone who holds the space for a birth to unfold.

Birth has always and will always be a spiritual experience, one that takes all involved deep within themselves revealing their inner workings – to meet their beliefs, attitudes and fears, conscious or not, that configure their experience. every woman will have her ‘potential’ birth experience - that holds the teachings for this point in her life journey.

The role of the BirthKeeper can be to facilitate the transformation that ‘wants to happen’ at this time for women
