“Birth is an involuntary process and an involuntary process cannot be helped. The point is not to disturb it”
– Michel Odent

Michel Odent and Liliana Lammers are sharing their 3-day doula course/birth conference with us ONLINE, in English, for the 2nd time this year.



What to expect from the 3-day online conference/Paramanadoula cursus?

After the three days, you will know important information about the physiology of birth, pregnancy, hormones, birth, breastfeeding. Depending on the interests of the participants, we’ll also discuss induction, food and needs during pregnancy, the use of echography…

This course is suited for all, doulas, mothers, women, men, partners, parents and non-parents, medical professions, and will bring beautiful insights on how to best support a pregnant or birthing person.
