1. You must have a command of the language of the workshop (reading, writing, verbal, understanding). Workshops are conducted in English but may be translated to Arabic or Indonesian in some regions. [We welcome volunteers who are interested in helping us translate into other languages as well.] Regardless of the language of the workshop or the materials or the expectant clientele, Affiliates who speak English do have an advantage, but there is plenty of support available in Arabic and Indonesian for sure.
  2. You should have a passion for serving birthing mothers.
  3. You must respect the religious foundation of our program (you do not have to be Muslim).
  4. You must be open-minded about natural birth, although you do not have to have had one yourself.
