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.

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.

During my the first tele-conference call I did not know what to expect or anticipate so I listened and received. Upon hearing the opening of the call with prayer to the statements Stephanie made about what Birth Heaven looks like, my heart opened and I found myself nodding in agreement. I felt encouraged and uplifted as principles that elevate one’s self out of ego and into love were continually illumined. This work is important not just for birth educators but for women alike to remember the truth of their being in whatever calling they have. I do feel this is incredibly valuable knowledge that Stephanie is sharing.

Stephanie Dawn is passionate about bringing the divine feminine into the forefront in birth and is a very inspiring teacher. She has created a unique and much needed program to bridge the gap between conventional and alternative modalities, as Sacred Birth Work is something that can be embraced in any birth setting. Her dedication to her work is clear and she is a beacon of light in the movement to bring humanity and empowerment back to women during the childbearing year.

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.

Stephanie Dawn is incredibly insightful as she presents information that allows us to really adventure into ourselves and see what we need to work on for our own well being so that we can better serve the community of birth. She gives sound business advice and reminds us that we are worth more than we allow ourselves to be worth and that we deserve to have the respect and care that we give our clients as well. I learned very valuable tools and information that will help in my transformation into a practicing midwife.

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.

Working with Stephanie Dawn is a true pleasure. I love her! Her enthusiasm and focus has brought me the right kind of value at the right time. Words cannot fully express my gratitude for her reaching out and pulling me through. There is no question in my mind that she cares for me, and that kind of caring feels really, really good. I recommend Stephanie for those kinds of individuals that value connection and love. I recommend Stephanie for those kinds of individuals that want to hear how to make their birthing business a full time career. I recommend Stephanie for those kinds of people who are passionate about what they do, yet are hesitant about the business aspects of their service. What I have learned above all else from Stephanie is that the work we do in the modern, gentle birth movement is of high value to the world. Further, that our efforts to pormote ourselves and further our businesses is actually NEEDED. I am fired up to offer my birth related services and Stephanie Dawn is standing there with a big grin and a can of fuel.

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.

Thank you Stephanie for shining your radiant light at this time. Our culture is undergoing a huge shift on so many levels. I am grateful to connect with you and be a piece of this puzzle creation in the world of birth. It is so inspiring to see the many connections that have been created in the Sacred Birth Mentor Program and all of the work you do for birth, families & humanity. Thank you for reminding me of my own beauty & strength and my many unique gifts. You provided such a safe & supportive circle that allowed each of us to explore & experience who we truly are! In joy & gratitude for all that you are! Sat Nam!

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.

I met Stephanie Dawn rather serendipitously through a friend, and quickly felt a deep resonance not only with her as a person, but also with the messages and practices she shares through her work. As a nurse-midwifery student, I found the Sacred Birth Mentorship Program to be deeply grounding at a time when the demands on my time and mental energy have never been higher. The practices and principles shared by Stephanie have helped me craft a more specific vision for my future expression not only as a midwife, but also as a well-rounded, self-loving human being. Birth work can tempt even the most balanced individuals to move into a space of depletion of our vital energy as we send our attention outward to the women and families we serve. Working with Stephanie has been instrumental in my ability to re-direct some of that energy toward self-love, self-care and healthy boundaries. I am grateful that I’ve had the chance to learn from Stephanie at the outset of my life as a midwife, and I have no doubt that the principles I’ve learned from her will continue to shape my birth work and my personal life for years to come.

The Sacred Birth Mentor Program has opened a whole new door for me in the last 9 weeks. Between the tele-classes and the private sessions with Stephanie, I have created a more heartfelt space of being present when working with clients and attending births. The exposure to various concepts, books and discussions has opened doors in my own spiritual practice and deepened my personal growth in a way that I could not have anticipated. I have a renewed sense of excitement to bring the tools that I have learned into my practice. I am deeply appreciative of the time and energy that Stephanie has put into creating this course and her continual work of shifting the paradigm [of birth] and look forward to continuing to work with her.

I had the pleasure of hearing Stephanie Dawn speak recently to a group of doulas from varying levels of experience. The topic was Business, Abundance, and Birthwork and touched on the importance of placing value on the work we do as birthworkers, and about thinking more consciously about the clients we attract. Stephanie reminded us of self-care, in all aspects, and that doing the work we love can also be a way for us to support our families, without guilt. While I have been doing this work professionally for over 11 years, Stephanie's information really validated much of what I do as a business owner and gave me some new insight to improve my business and relationships with my clients. For the new doulas in the room, this information was definitely transformative. Stephanie is an intelligent, nurturing, and spiritual soul. I encourage all doulas to attend one of Stephanie Dawn's lectures.

I wanted to take a moment to offer my deep appreciation for our truly sacred work together, and for the profound places these past couple of sessions have brought me to. I am aware that the groundwork for such substantial forward strides is required, which is why I knew and know that now is an essential time to consult with you.

And as I view the professional work I do as an entrepreneur as a facet of the body of work I express in service and of who I Am in this life incarnate, I recognize the core wounds or illusory beliefs I hold require transmutation for me to walk the path which has been laid before me by the Divine. And so our work together is of great value to me, benefitting my growth as a person, and as a healer, and as an entrepreneur; thank you for being a sister and a mirror and a beautiful mentor."

Birth Heaven Now! reenergized my connection to my passion for birth, change, women, family, and the world. It reminded me that my spirituality is a part of all I do everyday. It’s why I make the choices, statements, suggestions, and movements that I make everyday in my work, and all other parts of my life. This program also helped me realize how to bring back self-care in my life, by reminding me of what I was already doing and what small steps I can take to keep moving towards a place of excellence. Stephanie’s piece on business, really help me to clarify what changes I need to make, and what resources I already had to incorporate into my work. I am already seeing the benefits of taking this 3 week course!

Birth is the fulcrum from which your life may spiral in infinite directions. Having a guide like Stephanie Dawn in preparing for your most significant life event, is essential. When I met her in Italy I felt both soothed and blown away. People wish to meet Angels, well that’s easy, because Stephanie is right here, available for families, an Earth~Angel, a messenger of God. I don’t say this lightly, you don’t need an intermediate, you need someone who BELIEVES in you. Stephanie somehow embodies that. She is an opera of deep experience, hard earned wisdom and intuition. There are many teachers on this planet, many are fragrant with knowledge. You can easily find their perfume, but Stephanie Dawn IS the living lavender plant.

Wow, what an amazing day Tuesday. I have been uplifted ever since, and not only from the wonderful time in circle with other Sacred Birthkeepers, or from your source of inspiration, but also from the re-focusing I've done for myself, committing my self to prayer, visualization & self-love. It is so powerful to have the reminder, the acknowledgement that what we do as birth holders is incredibly valuable. I have previously shied away from focusing too deeply on the spiritual transformation taking place in families during my prenatal yoga classes and in meeting with doula clients, even though this is such a part of who I am. The main thing I gained from Birth Heaven is self-confidence; Confidence to be my full self, to honor and emphasize the spiritual work of growing families (from conception to childhood). With commitment to being my full self, and standing in the flow of Spirit at all times I am confident that my clients will be an ideal match. Confidence in one's work may see like a small thing to some, but it feels like such a VITAL thing to growing my business and keeping me on track. I am EXCITED to work hard, to be me, to grow, to love, and to be valued. I appreciate your accessibility and sincerity so much. Thank you so much! It is amazing how I was drawn to this class, that my path led me there/here. I look forward to working with you in January!!

Stephanie's coaching in Birth Heaven Now! has helped me step back and look at the big picture of what I need to do to take my business to the next level. She helps shift your way of thinking about your business, so that you approach your work from a business women's mindset and not treat it as a hobby you happen to get paid for. Stephanie places a huge emphasis on self-care and spirituality, which are two essential aspects of a well-rounded business in the birth world. What we do is different, and so her very specific approach is catered to our special needs and work. Thank you Stephanie for all your encouragement, support and coaching

It has taken me a while to actually go on one of the sacred birth courses and I wish I had done it at the beginning of my doula training! It has made me rethink how I visualize and see my self worth as a doula and birth goddess. It has made me reconsider how I approach my doula work and business and off course has educated me again in how we can work within the new paradigm of birth. The course has been an eye opener into the spiritual side of doula work and how I should embrace my spiritual side in my work. This has been a real blessing.

The Sacred Birth Mentor Program, Level 1, with Stephanie Dawn was a learning experience created with a mindful consciousness that guided me to deepen my connection with the divine force and feminine wisdom. It was wonderful to meet weekly with other birth workers who also felt a calling to bring light into the birth world, to strengthen their abilities to be of service to families and to learn how to walk the walk of a spiritual birth mentor. The guest speakers that Stephanie chose were so appropriate and a huge bonus to the journey. I walked away from this experience with a greater sense of self as I now practice self-care ritually thanks to the emphasis Stephanie put this being as being an essential ingredient to being of service to others. Thank you for the work that you do Stephanie Dawn.
