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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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!!

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.

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!

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.

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.
