What do we Midwives do when we aren't at a birth?
Some wonder how it's all juggled and this question has been asked , which is a great one! As Midwives it's always our goal and passion to educate our clients. This is part of the care to empower families and prepare them for delivery.
We've always enjoyed educating and started doing this well before Natural BirthWorks was our baby.

Midwife Gelena started her own childbirth education series while in school because she enjoyed educating families on how to prepare for a natural birth. She offers a comprehensive childbirth class series monthly, created an awesome online course so women everywhere could access the information needed to achieve the birth they want, and is continuing her knowledge in Herbalism to provide extensive care to her clients even after delivery.
So aside from raising their kids, homeschooling, accounting and running about 2 companies each that is :) They love what they do but definitely have a lot going on behind the scenes.
