First and foremost, birth is an act of trust and worship of our Creator. We are strong supporters of natural births in any setting (home, hospital, birth center, etc.). We teach good birth consumerism and physical/mental/emotional preparation for the big event. Afterbirth care and an overview of breastfeeding are included. Whether you are a Muslim or simply want to be more culturally competent, this course offers reference to Islamic teachings, practices and culture that makes this training unique. Besides the core curriculum of pregnancy, labor, and birth physiology and working with our materials, our syllabus combines soft skills (interpersonal and teaching skills) with practical knowledge and simulated practice set in an Islamic context. We cover teaching skills, hands-on doula skills (including rebozo), marketing and more. Come prepared to learn and have fun in a relaxed setting with other like-minded sisters who are passionate about birth!
