Sacred Birth Mentor Program

sbmp_logoThe Sacred Birth Mentor Program, a 3 level, 2 year certification program, will support you in bringing your awareness about life and birth to a whole new level. Together we will endeavor to become the Rainbow Bridge for the Midwifery Model of Care and the Western Medical Model of Care, replacing fear with love, darkness with light, stress with wellness and balance, and replace lack in the birth world with dynamic financial health and prosperity.

This program is designed for birth professionals seeking to deepen their understanding of their own spirituality and the spirituality and sanctity of birth as they learn the philosophy and components of Sacred Birth Work, created by Los Angeles spiritual counselor, business coach and mother, Stephanie Dawn. It is also designed to help them to succeed mightily in their chosen profession of birth work.

The Sacred Birth Mentor Program (SBMP) is a comprehensive spiritual, wellness & business education. Each week, topics rarely covered for birth professionals are examined and deepened, including spiritual practices such as prayer, meditation, affirmations, contemplation and visioning. Understanding fear, pleasure and birth, the power of forgiveness, conscious conception/fertility and spiritual counseling are the main topics covered in Level 1. Level 2 adds in business, including sales and marketing and Level 3 brings it all together in real world terms via 1:1 counsel and coaching, as well as group calls. At the end of the two years, participants will be certified as a Sacred Birth Counselor, or CSBC, able to teach Sacred Birth Work, the Sacred Birth Workshop and offer Sacred Birth Counseling sessions to clients.

3rd Level SBMP Mentee

Working with Stephanie through the Sacred Birth Mentor Program and also in private sessions has had a profound impact on everything I do - in my work as a doula and childbirth educator and everything in my relationships with my peers, clients, and my own family. The clients I want to find me are now able to find me. I am able to reach my doula clients in a way I never could before and connect with them more deeply. I am able to help them find their own inner authority and never ignore their inner voices. I finally feel like I am helping my clients find their own inner wisdom and knowledge about birth that they never knew they had. And the same would be true for myself. Working with Stephanie has helped me recognize the deepest knowledge I have about who I truly am, and why I am on this planet. And now that I know, I am so excited to move forward in my birth work. Thank you, Stephanie!"

I first began my journey with Stephanie when I heard her free class "Creating a New Paradigm of Birth” not once but twice. Her descriptions of Birth Heaven and Birth Hell mirrored my own experiences as a doula and as a mother with my own story of Birth Hell. I had been searching for quite a while for a way to incorporate spirituality into the birth experiences of my clients, as it was clear it was a missing piece of the positive birth experience puzzle. I continued with Stephanie in Birth Heaven Now! and to say it changed my business isn’t enough, it changed my life. Almost without effort my business blossomed and I was able to stand in my worth. The mentorship Program has taken all of what I had learned to a new and more profound level. The emphasis on self-care goes deeper than just making time for yourself, it creates the opportunity for you to look at the reasons why you aren’t taking the critical time needed for yourself, which for me has been vital. The one-on-one sessions with Stephanie are invaluable and are my favorite piece of the program. If you are looking for a way to deepen the spiritual experience of birth not only for your clients but for yourself, then I cannot recommend Stephanie’s program highly enough.

This program has helped me uncover a whole side of myself that I have been hiding my entire life. My intention in the course was to help my birth doula practice, but I have found that my personal life was in need of the teachings and tools provided. I have seen and felt both the positive and negative that comes with awakening the spirit. I feel that I am now able to embrace anything that resonates in my daily life. I have never felt such sincere energy and support from a group that is located all over the world. These women have left an imprint on my heart.

As a result of taking Stephanie Dawn’s Sacred Birth Mentor Program Level 1, I have a different outlook as a birthing professional. Stephanie has shed light on what I considered a dark place. At times being a birthing professional can be so difficult, but after taking the Sacred Birth Mentor Program, I have become stronger in my beliefs as a birthing professional or as Stephanie calls it a “Spiritual Midwife“. The class has helped me to take an honest look at the birthing experience and see it in a whole new light. I have been creating a new expectation of birth for my clients. The meditation, prayer, visioning and spiritual practices were beneficial, and they have transformed my fears into faith. The spiritual tools have been useful in my personal life as well as my birthing professional life. It has empowered me to be bold, loving, open hearted, powerful, gentle and strong. Thank you beautiful Angel ~ Stephanie Dawn.

The Sacred Birth Mentor Program has changed the way I approach my work by making me fresh, inspiring my very best, and providing me with the skills to bring a holistic outlook to the work I do with mothers. It is as much about taking care of yourself as an integral part of the work we are doing as it is about taking care of others. I have learned that without self renewal, I am in no way able to give all I can to my work. While many organizations offer us the basics and the necessary information to begin a business and even be successful, the Sacred Birth Mentor Program gives the tools to make it shine. This program helped me to create a business that is unique and truly something I am able to give to the movement of empowered birth.

The Sacred Birth Mentor Program has been an amazing experience for me. Not only did I meet amazing people but formed beautiful friendships and sisterhood connections. The value of having us share our experiences within our global communities, to be able to support one another personally and professionally and to be able to connect with one another on a spiritual level was priceless. Its been an unforgettable 9 weeks that will always remain within me. The work doesn’t stop at the end of the class, it continues within us and our communities. Stephanie is a treasure, a beautiful gem for whom I am eternally grateful for knowing.

My coaching sessions with Stephanie have been life-changing. I have been on a conscious spiritual path for over ten years now and I still have times when I fall under the sway of fears- especially since becoming a mom. Things stabilized for us by the time the course started, but after I had my sessions with Stephanie, there was a huge shift in my consciousness. I really started to see how from one day to the next I could easily change the course of a situation from good with many opportunities, to bad, with no way out depending on my state of mind. Stephanie was my angel voice reminding me of my Divine nature and that I had the power to effect & change my situation just by changing my thoughts/beliefs- she reminds me to use my tools & put them into practice – they are my life line now. Since our sessions, my husband’s work has started flowing in- the attendance of my classes have doubled or tripled in some cases and I have been making more connections in my community related to Sacred Birth Work.

Stephanie’s courage and dedication to bring this work into the birthing world has been extremely inspiring. The mentor program has not only changed how I support the families I work with, but also how I work with myself. Creating sacred space has taken on a bigger and deeper meaning for my life and my work.
