Join the postpartum renaissance
Our culture values more masculine ways of learning including analytical thought and problem solving.
This has led to the commodification of motherhood and sabotaged mothers by placing the knowledge outside of us, in the hands of experts.
It’s time to change the paradigm!
Newborn Mothers Collective will change the way you work with pregnant women and new mums.
You will get the tools and skills you need to elevate women above the experts and advice paradigm.
You will show mothers how to make the first six weeks after childbirth the best six weeks of their life.

Frequently Asked Questions
If I Complete This Training Can I work as A Postpartum Doula?
Yes, if you want to be a postpartum doula. This course will teach you everything you need to know to get insurance and start working as a postpartum doula in Australia.
Many of the people who study with me are already qualified as naturopaths/yoga teachers/psychologists etc. So they do not want to be a postpartum doula. Your certificate and graphic for your website will acknowledge you as a Newborn Mothers Certified Postpartum Professional.
You will get professional development points from the Australian College of Midwives, a certificate, a graphic to display on your website and a listing in my online directory.
Professional development points are also available for hypnobirthing practitioners, yoga teachers, physio's and more. If you are not sure, just ask your professional association. If this course is not eligible in your industry let us know and we'll try and register it if possible.
Am I qualified enough to do this advanced training?
Yes! If you feel moved to work with Newborn Mothers in any capacity this training is great for you. This may be the first step you take in your postpartum career as a total newbie! Or if you already have any training or experience working with mothers this will be a great addition to your skills. Plus it will likely fill in the postpartum gaps in your knowledge.
I'm already a postpartum doula - do I need to do this training?
I you feel drawn to this work then YES! This training is advanced and will likely up-level your skills and knowledge and give you practical ways to work with Newborn Mothers that are not available through any other course. In this course you will NOT learn basic baby care or standard breastfeeding education. You will learn about more complex and advanced topics such as transformation, ancient traditions, Ayurveda and brain science.
Is this training available worldwide?
Yes! I used to only be able to teach locally in my small town. Now thanks to the power of the internet you can study with me from anywhere in the world. The core curriculum is pre-recorded lessons that you can do in your own time.
During the live round we will have 11 bonus live classes that will be at varying times over six weeks to maximise everyones chances of attending, regardless of your time zone. And if you do miss a live class, don't worry - I'll send you the recordings.
We already have students in Berlin, Ontario, Lisbon, Bristol, San Francisco and Sao Paulo
I'm a busy mum! Will I have time to do this course?
Yes! I have 3 young children and a I run my own business, and I have created this course with people like you in mind.
The course is designed to take your approximately 2-4 hours a week for 6 weeks. However some people prefer to blitz it in a weekend and others take months to graduate! You will get instant and lifetime access to the entire course so the choice is entirely yours.
All lessons are available as video, audio or text, and accessible from any device and downloadable so you can learn on the go. Personally I love listening to the audio as it's really easy to learn whilst I am walking, driving or watching my kids play at the park.
