Traditional Midwifery Education Classes

Mamma Primitiva Midwifery Educational classes support the ways of Traditional Midwifery Council that represents traditional midwives worldwide, preserves cultural/indigenous sovereignty including traditional midwifery and the conservation of our vital medicinal plants, water, and land which are essential for healthy birth. This council shares cultural practices and knowledge from our families and cultural/ indigenous traditions passed down orally, preserving the accountability of traditional midwives. The council teaches and protects birthing traditions, fights for our rights to govern ourselves and uphold the legacy of our elders. We are committed to carrying the torch and bringing in the next generations of traditional midwives and indigenous practitioners. We promote these efforts as a world concept to protect our children and all life on our mamma earth.

 The Wisdom of the 13 Moons 
The concept and definition of the 13 Moons is not only powerful but also a guideline that reflect our past and future wisdom from our traditional cultures and ancestral wisdom! As traditional Midwives it creates a better understanding of the path we must take in order for us to maintain and preserve the laws of natures within the birthing process. Mama Primativa is dedicated to honoring those values, 
The 13 moon cycle is a 28 day calendar and is the oldest standard of time that correlates with the star "Sirius" which was regulated with the woman's moon time (menstrual cycle) as defined by multiple cultural groups. This system was at one time the tool of measurement which created balance or a tool for synchronicity for both the earth and women and creates a perfect orbital measure of 13 moons of 28 days, totaling 364 days, or 52 weeks and at one time known as a sacred yet powerful time for women of all cultures and held the highest "Value"!  It is and continues to be an evolutionary tool to assist humanity in the the unprecedented act of uniting itself central to its complete well-being especially as it relates to birthing practices.
We are reminded as We journey through birthing wisdom/knowledge practices that "There's Nothing knew under the Sun" and as midwives we must remember to pay homage to the "Sankofaa" of the past wisdom of the ancient mothers who remembered that "Natural Was the conscious Source of ALL, as we carry our wisdom to the future.
Regardless of a "Patriarchal" need to change the calendar cycle by radically pushing a 13 month cycle into one of 12 months causing imbalance in multiple phases of life, Mama Primativa reminds us to leave the time of war, conflict and imbalance behind in order to enter a time of PeaceHarmony and natural birth practices and the need for humanity to return the natural timing frequency for the sake of harmony and universal Peace!

 Who will attend Mamma Primitiva?

This course includes women of many different cultures and countries learning traditional midwifery. We have done grassroots work locally, nationally and internationally for many years keeping traditional midwifery alive and have worked extensively in Hawaii, Greece, Sicilia and Bulgaria and the United States.  

Many years ago, we organized the Mother Oak Midwifery Conferences, where traditional midwives who have now crossed over taught along side other midwives and practitioners.  All sessions from these extraordinary conferences were taped and some have become part of the midwifery education you receive. The words from these old midwives are part of this educational experience, taking you to the root of this ancient knowing and wisdom. Women from all over the world attend this traditional midwifery courses. Local and worldwide networking result from your friendships and all proceeds will go to non-profit birth work.

This education is to help you prepare yourself to help women birth with a traditional approach. This is mamma primitiva work; truthful education about birth, raising children and healing. We look forward to you receiving this education through Mamma Primitiva to help women and babies birth with respect and love and create sovereignty in the world, starting with birth.
