Traditional Midwifery Education Classes

Mission Statement of Mamma Primitiva/Birth Sovereignty


Mamma Primitiva is a worldwide online traditional midwifery educational program that believes that if given the opportunity and teachings every woman can know and help with the restoration of traditional birth. It is the work of the primitive mamma. 

The intention of Mamma Primitiva is to provide traditional midwifery education to a diverse group of women around the world. 100% of the money generated from the tuition paid to this school will go directly to supporting traditional midwifery model of care or sustainability in low economic areas and the forming of the Traditional Midwifery Council. The intention is to keep the traditional midwife ways of birthing alive while at the same collaborating with birth practitioners from around the world.

Clare Loprinzi, founder of Mamma Primitiva and member of the medical advisory board . This Medical Advisory Board is a broad collaboration of practioneers advising our birth work to create the bridge between high technology obstetric care and the excellent outcomes provided by the low technology, hands on midwifery model of care in impoverished and disaster stricken countries. The collection of our data will provide inspiration for birthing centers worldwide."

This educational school could not be doing this without the help of many other people and you. We have much work to do to help Motherearth heal, and it starts with birth. I would like to thank you for joining us and hope that the healing begins with you and spreads throughout birth movements and groups such as Birth Sovereignty and the Traditional Midwifery Council.

Traditional Midwifery Council 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. 

Mission Statement: We support traditional midwives, apprentices and the diversity of cultural/indigenous practitioners to preserve traditional midwifery and  cultural/indigenous sovereignty. We collaborate with other natural practitioners to create a working model for continuity of healthcare in our communities. We are a broad collaboration of practitioners and families working to promote food, land and cultural sovereignty. We realize that each woman has a central role in all aspects of her ceremony of birth. Promoting non-traumatic healthy birth is the beginning of the many challenges we face. We support access to relevant diverse healthcare options throughout life. It is a right for people to affect change in their surroundings that protect and promote ancestral knowledge. 

Birth Sovereignty: Birth Sovereignty supports basic public health measures and projects that create sovereignty in birth choices, health care access and environmental health as a vital component of broader cultural, social, economic and environmental sovereignty and justice issues. Land sovereignty is the right of working peoples to have effective access to, use of, and control over land and the benefits of its use and occupation, where land is understood as resource. Cultural Sovereignty includes having the right to traditional medicines and to maintain health practices, including the conservation of their vital medicinal plants. Food sovereignty is the right of peoples to healthy and culturally appropriate food produced through ecologically sound and sustainable methods, and their right to define their own food and agriculture systems.
