Our team:

Right now this is a team of one with the vision to have many of us working together offering pre and post natal care and education. I have started this website as a seed with the hope it will attract others who want to offer their services to the birthing and parenting community.

If you feel inspired by this please don't hesitate to contact me. The best way to do this is via email info@birthcircle.org. (I have no phone coverage at the ashram where i teach in Australia.)

I am looking forward to hearing from you.
