This is the perfect time to study birth and midwifery. If you are called to the realms of Conscious Birth…

the time is NOW!

If you are ready to deepen your knowledge of how birth authentically unfolds…and ready to step forth to bring your insight and understanding to birthing families in whatever capacity they choose…

Come and spend a year with us.

You’ll learn the art and skill of the Birthkeeper and the Quantum Midwife.

In entering this program you have access to the complete

Online Quantum Midwifery Program


This includes ten Modules, ranging from Pregnancy to Postpartum, that offer a complete and comprehensive midwifery education. In the year-long Mentorship Cohort we will move through the Midwifery Program on a fast track designed to work through each Module, learning the most important concepts and skills.

Each participant will have access to the course materials for as long as they wish and will always have the complete course to review or continue to deepen
their understanding of birth.

At the end of the year you may claim a certificate of hours studied in Holistic Midwifery and you may receive your certificate as a Professional Childbirth Consultant and Family Advocate. You will be ready to enter the birthing realm with an enhanced knowledge of birth and you will have the confidence to provide families with equitable care and service.

The Mentorship Cohort is an on-line program.

Each month you attend a 2-hour live streaming Zoom presentation by Whapio and a 2-hour presentation with Shaconna. These presentations are opportunities to discuss topics that arise during the month and are pertinent to the lessons in the Module being studied.

Each participant is asked to commit to a weekly 2-hour study group with 3 to 5 other participants. Study group is a time to connect via Zoom with other students and share information, insights and revelations with each other. The connections of your study group are important aspects of mentoring that is key in the unfolding of this program. Aside from the Zoom experiences, you will move through each Module on your own time by watching the videos, reading the Lessons in each Module and doing the textbook reading pertinent to each Module.

You will not be expected to finish everything in each Module during this year and you will have the Modules to review at any time. If you devote 8 – 10 hours a week plus a study group of two hours you can easily access the important points within each Module and gain the competence and confidence to offer your services to the community.

Books are an essential part of the course and our booklist is on the website in our Holistic Midwifery section. Please look over the section on the Holistic Midwifery program for a closer look at what the Midwifery program includes. We are happy to open a Module to anyone wishing to see the depth and scope of the program.

If you are interested in this program please email Whapio at for information or to schedule a phone chat to discuss details and to answer any questions.

Looking forward to connecting!

Our Disclaimer:

At the Matrona our programs do not certify students to practice midwifery. Our programs offer an educational structure to understand birth and midwifery in its organic and authentic unfolding. Our year long Birthkeeper’s Mentorship Cohort certifies students as a Professional Childbirth Consultant (PCC) and a Family Advocate (FA). A diploma in holistic midwifery from The Matrona is awarded to students who participate in an additional, 2nd year of study. We support the concept of independent midwifery and women caring for women. We suggest that any student wishing to pursue midwifery seek an apprenticeship after finishing our program.
