Midwifery Seminar

Hello, Midwives, Homeopaths and Students,
I often offer an introductory class for the Bach Flower Essences the evening before the Midwifery seminar, usually from 7 to 9 p.m. and we will cover all 38 Bach essences, which help people with emotional and mental difficulties. At the end of the class you will make up a treatment bottle for yourself. This class is a lot of fun and the Bach essences are very helpful in pregnancy, labor, delivery and post partum. No CEUs for this class. $30

Here are the details of the midwife education seminar I have offered many times. Please contact me if you want to schedule this seminar (minimum 10 confirmed and paid-in-full attendees).

Comments by midwives who have taken Marybeth’s seminar:
“Now I get it! I’ve used homeopathy on my family but no matter how much I’ve read on it, I couldn’t understand how it works. Now I feel like I can use the remedies with confidence and effectiveness.”

Midwife from the North Shore, MN

“This remedy kit is so cute–and it fits into my birth bag nicely. I appreciated how you taught us how to care for the remedies. I’ll never store my kit in the car in summer again–I don’t want to ruin it.”
Midwife from central WI

“THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, Marybeth! I liked how you taught us by starting with the basics and you gently guided us into more and more sophisticated knowledge of the remedies and homeopathy. The stories and cases from your experience fleshed out the remedy pictures. Please consider teaching a Part Two session–after we’ve had a chance to put this info to work.”
Doula/midwife from Minneapolis

“Marybeth, your gentle, professional presentation was amazing. You said you love being a homeopath, you have no ambitions to be a midwife (you are right, the hours suck!). But girl, you are one of us.”

Midwife from western MN

“My head is almost bursting with information. And I can see what remedies I could use for this birth problem or that one. I liked how you walked us thru various birthing issues. Now I have the tools and knowledge to serve my clients so much better. When will you offer a second session?”
A midwife-apprentice from Minneapolis
