Traditional Birth Keeper

What is a traditional birth keeper? 

A traditional birth keeper is a birth witness who honours the natural physiological experience of birth, undisturbed and completely guided by the sovereign mother. 

A Birth Keeper is often times described as a Traditional Midwife, but should not be confused with a licensed, regulated medwife. I am working towards traditional birth keeping midwifery but do not currently offer traditional midwifery services.

"A woman, as long as she lives, will remember how she was made to feel at her birth"

- Anna Verwaal 

I do not perform any clinical tasks such as but not limited to: monitoring fetal heart tones, checking blood pressure, cervical dilation, measuring baby, etc. I am currently a student midwife.


Why Sasha Marie

What makes me different?

When you choose Sasha Marie, you are choosing to put your birth experience first.
