Medicine name

December 12, 2015


I have gone through every entry in this blog and changed every reference to Shamanic Midwife..

This is a title that I have used to describe the work I do and the medicine I bring in this life.

A Shamanic Midwife is a midwife of the soul, a priestess at the altars of transformation, she who is ‘with Women’ which is the original meaning of the word midwife, in this realm and the other realms.

I have never used the term Midwife to describe myself, without the word Shamanic in front of it.

I have never posed as a Midwife, or attended births out of hospital. In fact most of the births I attend are high risk births in hospital with OB’s and teams of medical care givers. I am purely there as a emotional and spiritual support because the Woman has asked me to attend. The Women I attend to are intelligent and informed, they know my abilities and limitations. I have never performed any medical tasks for anyone.

Yet, the use of the term Shamanic Midwife is now not allowed, as I have been informed by a government body, I can fight it if I wish, but I don’t wish to. The word is not important to me. The work is.

The name can dissolve really, but the way will always be.


Blessed be

    As crazy as the restrictions are on using that term… It’s just a good reminder in non attachment – and as you said – the name is not important but the work is – keep up the beautiful, sacred and empowering work ?
    Much respect
