The curriculum is designed to teach dedicated health professionals, psychologists, birth workers, body workers, educators, doctors, and parents evidence-based practices, philosophies, and therapies that nurture Human Potential and optimize the healthiest trajectory for developing babies. This Educator Certificate Course addresses the current maternal-infant health care crisis, which is intimately intertwined with the rise of technocratic practices and obstetrical intervention in the birth setting, racial inequalities, intergenerational and generational trauma, and the lack of recognition of basic human rights of the (un)born, mother, and families.

Christianna Deichmann, RCST®, PPNE, LMT is a somatic psychotherapist focusing on pre and perinatal psychology, conscious parenting through emotional awareness, and the spiritual science of nurture. She practices massage, Biodynamic CranioSacral Therapy, and pre and perinatal psycho-somatic techniques to help adults, children, and babies release and integrate the pivotal and life altering experiences we have during conception, in-utero, birth, postpartum and early childhood. She is also a trained doula and works with birthing people prior to, during and after birth.

She has been working with the body for over 20 years and deeply believes

help women reconnect to themselves, to where they feel the most wise, whole and supported, and can go on to create nurturing relationships.
