Our work can be so challenging.

You give so deeply of yourself every day ... when do you allow yourself to be nourished?  


The world is at a tipping point, and your work might feel harder than ever.

You know just how important each birth is in a woman’s life, but it can be hard to keep on giving, day in, day out. 

Do you any of these sound familiar?

  • exhaustion
  • low energy
  • hints of burnout
  • stress or overwhelm
  • disconnection from passion

Even if you're doing well right now, you know how important it is to have space for rejuvenation, self-care, renewal and reconnection. 

Because what's the cost if you just keep going and going and going?

Childbirth is meant to be a nourishing, soul-sustaining and transformative time


When do you replenish your own reserves?

The biggest savings you can ever achieve is your own health and wellbeing. 

Be guided and supported to rekindle your passion while you build a powerful community of like-minded souls.

Be immersed in a nurturing empowering space so you can embody what you're learning

What you take home isn't just for you. You'll gain practical tools that can make a real difference in your own life, with your colleagues, and with the women and families you work with.

An inside peek at the Deepening the Journey Program

Your own integration and healing is vital.

Being able to come back to center quickly, feel clear-headed, make decisions from a calm state of mind no matter what's happening.

We accept a limited number of participants for this intimate in-person deep dive so you connect deeply and get the focus and attention you need.

1) Space for YOU 

You know what it feels like when a container is held. Your body relaxes, your nervous system settles, you exhale.

Support, connection, and the right environment allow you to come back to your own centre, to remember why you got into this work, and to fill your own cup

This is your time.

2)  Tapping for Birth Program

Learn the original energy psychology modality to work quickly and powerfully with anxiety, stress, fears, trauma, overwhelm and more.

This potent tool is simple, effective and profound - both for yourself and the women and families you work with.

3) Nervous System Regulation

You deserve to enjoy life.

To thrive, and appreciate the ups and downs.

The key to this happening is a regulated nervous system. 

You'll go home calm, connected and peaceful with practices to use in everyday life, for yourself and clients.

4) Connect with your Inner Knowing

Head and heart, art and science: birth work combines it all. 

Trust and intuitive knowing can be one of your most powerful allies, both personally and professionally

Learn to discern (and trust) your own intuition so that you have the clarity to respond in a way that is aware and centered - not reactive.

5) Time with Ibu Robin Lim and Bumi Sehat

Learn about the ecology of gentle birth, lotus birth, cord burning and placenta rituals.

Experience making (and enjoying!) Indonesian herbal jamu elixirs.

Soak up the wisdom from Ibu Robin, our midwifery treasure.

6) Online program pre and post retreat

Retreats are an amazing way to truly rejuvenate: you get out of your daily routine and have the time you need to fully reset. 

And ... it's the integration of the tools, practices and experiences that brings it all home. 

Our pre and post retreat program gives you ongoing support and connection when it really matters

Yes. I need this!

3 ways Deepening the Journey will uplevel your midwifery practice


Hi! I’m Lianne,

For over 15 years, I’ve been facilitating trauma-integration healing sessions for my clients as well as for midwives and doulas. In this work, it has become so clear to me that something needs to shift.

We can’t keep going the way we are. So many women are burnt out, stressed and anxious. And when this happens to a midwife, lives can be at stake. As a birthworker, you’re so good at helping women find their circle of support. But who do you turn to for guidance? How do you nurture yourself as a sacred birthkeeper? 

I’ve been a midwife for more than 20 years, in clinical practice as well as teaching midwives in a postgraduate university program for more than 14 years. I also run retreats, programs and workshops for midwives and families, facilitating profound transformation and sharing practical skills and knowledge that make a difference.

I’m passionate about working with midwives and other birthworkers because we are the gatekeepers at the beginning of life. We know how transformational the moments around birth are, and how much it impacts the woman, her baby, her family, and our world. And, how we are, who we are, in those moments, makes a difference…

Natalie Testimonial


"I came with an open mind and a thirst for knowledge. I leave with a connection to myself, women of the earth that I had not expected. I have learned so much from the most amazing group of women as well as having time to heal myself in ways I hadn't known I needed. I feel reinvigorated & inspired with a new sense of commitment to transforming birth. Thank you!"
