With 500+ graduates from over 30 countries, the Radical Birth Keeper School is leading the transformation of birth-work across the planet.

If you are ready to discover your place in the world of birth, this is where you begin. 

Women are resonating with the birth liberation movement like never before in history, choosing sovereign birth and tapping into the ancient wisdom embedded in our very biology with a sense of profound recognition. As this shift accelerates, the need for genuine, knowledgeable, authentic birth keepers, coaches, and educators who know and cherish the very essence of birth in power is essential.

The Radical Birth Keeper School is the only program that will equip you with the language and context essential for understanding the political and psychological intricacies of the medical birth system, along with the tools of self-mastery, business fundamentals, and a foundational training in the art and practice of attending births beyond the medical system. 

Learn from powerhouse duo, Emilee and Yolande. Their 40+ years of combined experience will help you simplify the complexities of industrial obstetrics, explain the sovereign birth paradigm, and light the path ahead.
 

The Radical Birth Keeper School offers you the foundations of radical birth keeping as taught by leaders of the birth liberation movement, Yolande Norris-Clark & Emilee Saldaya. 

At a time when modern obstetrics still dominates (even so-called “natural birth”) this ground-breaking program is an invitation to explore the intersection of physiology and the philosophy of what constitutes truly sovereign birth. Every birthing mother deserves to experience the deep connection and resonance available to her through birth.

For birth-workers, it’s imperative that we understand the nuances of this new paradigm, in order to fully support the transformative process of birth with integrity. 

The Radical Birth Keeper School isn't merely about re-learning what birth is and how it works; it's about ensuring that women everywhere have truly respectful, uplifting, intelligent, effective support that sees them as the central authority of their experience. →

This school is for you if:


You love birth, but the politics of birth confuse you.

If you're drawn to the world of birth but perplexed by its seemingly intricate politics, including the competition and territorialism among midwives, this course will provide clarity.

You're new to the birth world.

If you’re considering radical birth keeping or service to women in any capacity, it's crucial to understand the foundations first. This program will guide you there.

You have doubts about your ability to truly create change by working within the system.

If you're currently a midwife, a doula, or a birth professional working within the institution and you’re starting to question the prevailing obstetric model, find your answers here.

You’ve finally woken up to the lie of reform, but don’t know what to do next.

The RBK School is the only educational pathway for women who do understand the narcissistic dynamics of the obstetric industrial complex, and who want to exit that system to practice birth-work with true power and effectiveness.

You're seeking a better way in birth-work.

If you're wondering whether there's a more genuine, ethical approach to birth-work that avoids harmful practices, this course will guide you.

You have a deep desire for true sisterhood, connection, and to be in relationship with other women who really “get it.”

The RBK School is an amazing opportunity to connect with like-minded women. Many of our graduates have gone on to form IRL friendships and partnerships with their RBK colleagues, making the school so much more than just a training.

The Radical Birth Keeper School is truly the first of its kind. 


The Radical Birth Keeper
 School is not just another online course.
 It's an immersive, live, intensive mastermind in sovereign birth-work, that will give you the blueprint and guidance to shed your unconscious commitments to self sabotage, your allegiances to the allopathic model, and to support you as you step into being the powerful woman you are destined to be.

Flexibility

We are completely distinct from other birth-work programs and go way beyond any doula training.  

Our program will be immensely worthwhile for any birth-worker, from seasoned midwives wanting to exit the obstetric system, to doulas who are burnt out on hospital birth. If you're new to this work, this is the training that will put you on track to distinguishing yourself from other birth workers and allow you to fully own your worth from the beginning. 

Our program will give you the resources to do birth-work in a way that reflects your ethics, and resonates with your clients, your community, and your life.

Value

We are rooted in dismantling birth myths and rebuilding the foundations of birth work from a completely new consciousness.

We’ve taken our 40+ collective years of experience in the business and practice of birth, and put it all together to give you a roadmap for success. Our curriculum is action-oriented, deeply relevant, and rooted in skills and knowledge that can be applied to an array of professional and community contexts with ease.

We’ll walk you through the process of transforming your passion for birth into your life’s work—that you can actually make a living from, in integrity.

Mentorship

Our life changing training is grounded in vitalizing, live, interactive teaching  experiences with Emilee and Yolande. 

You’ll be invited to analyze real world birth work scenarios and case studies, and deconstruct everything from your own birth, to money wounds, to copywriting and marketing strategies.

 We'll also be inviting you into a relationship with intensive transformational self mastery tools, designed to have you emerge with the inner resources to handle the real pressures of working in birth with grace and impeccability.

The program includes access to recorded lessons, extensive readings and resources, along with weekly integration exercises and assignments.

Sisterhood

Your enrollment includes access to our private school community; a space for sharing, asking questions, and networking with Emilee and Yolande and your fellow students.

While the RBK School live online program runs for 8 weeks, enrollment includes lifetime access to the program material.

Access to the private student community will run for the duration of the program. Following graduation, you’ll be invited to join the FBS professional network via the certification pathway.

One of the most beloved aspects of the RBK program is that it invites you into a loving sisterhood of radical open-minded brilliant women. Come be a part of our circle and form friendships that can last a lifetime. 

We are here to reclaim birth-work as it’s meant to be: nourishing and soul-sustaining for ourselves, our communities, and our families.

Our curriculum combines:

  • The science and wisdom of instinctive birth physiology
  • Heart centered business strategies for exponential growth and success (without struggle)
  • Life changing self-mastery tools
  • Revolutionary strategies for showing up authentically as Birth Keepers
  • An incredible community and mentorship experience
  • The ancient wisdom model of women’s healing traditions
  • The evidence-based physiology and chemistry of birth
  • The business and marketing skills required to excel in the digital age

You know deep down that you're meant to be serving birthing women in your community. 

You can feel it in your bones. You know it in your cells. You’re drawn to this work by the voices of your great-grandmothers. You long to witness and support the awesome power of women as we make life, form kinship, and transform the world through undisturbed matriarchal birth.

This is the new paradigm.

You see what’s going on within “the system”. You have shown up as a doula or a nurse and you’ve learned the hard way that “reform” just doesn’t work. You may even be a medical doctor or a licensed midwife, like many of our past graduates. You know from experience, there is no “changing the system from the inside”. You’re no longer willing to be complicit with the abuse of mothers and babies. You know there’s a problem, and you’re ready to be part of the solution.  

This is the training that walks you into the new wave of birth-work.

Have you ever wondered:

𖦹 What truly lies at the heart of radical birth keeping?

𖦹 How to talk about the politics of birth with clarity and power?

𖦹 What the core differences are between the medical birth system and the sovereign birth paradigm, and why this difference matters?

𖦹 How to effectively critique the ethics of the prevailing obstetric model and why this is important?

𖦹 How to navigate challenging conversations and skepticism surrounding freebirth and authentic midwifery without falling into fruitless debate and defensiveness?

Have you asked yourself:

𖦹 If you too can find your place in birth-work outside the system? 

𖦹 If it’s really possible to make the transition from being a hospital doula, a licensed midwife, or a “birth-junkie” on the sidelines, to becoming a sovereign birth-attendant or coach?

𖦹 Whether you can actually create a career and make an abundant living in the birth-world?

What if you finally:

𖦹 felt so rooted in integrity as a birthworker that every decision you made felt intuitively right?

𖦹 had the language to express the dynamics of industrial birth and the philosophies and distinctions that underpin the liberated birth model?

𖦹 could discern between an authentic birth practice and the constraints of the modern medical model, allowing you to educate and serve mothers with clarity and conviction?

𖦹 knew that you were attending births and doing so in the most authentic and powerful way?

𖦹 Had a powerful group of like minded sisters supporting you and ready to collaborate?

The Radical Birth Keeper School is your answer.

As leading voices in their fields, with over 40 years of combined expertise, Emilee and Yolande are blazing the trail of the birth liberation movement as it proliferates across the planet. With a passionate dedication to teaching women and birth workers everywhere how to step forward and co-create what they have coined as The Sovereign Birth Paradigm.

Their professional relationship (and best friendship) began in 2017 and quickly evolved into collaborating on creating the bestselling online course The Complete Guide to Freebirth. Released in 2018, the Complete Guide to Freebirth has reached over 10,000 women and families, and remains the most popular and comprehensive childbirth education program available.

Join us as we speak truth to power and deconstruct and dissect the dynamics of industrial midwifery and obstetrics, along with celebrating (and teaching) some of the core concepts and skills foundational for practicing as a truly sovereign midwife.

"Sovereign birth-work arises through relationship and devotion, and it's really the antithesis of the distorted power dynamics of the industrial obstetric and medical midwifery vortices -- which are rooted in coercion, inverted hierarchies, trauma, drama, and violation."

- Yolande Norris-Clark

"Your role as a radical birth keeper is primarily a spiritual one. Birth work is, at its core, deeply sacred work. It's energy work; it's shamanic. And it carries tremendous self-responsibility."

- Emilee Saldaya

There is a different way to do birth-work. The RBK School provides a proven roadmap for serving and upholding spontaneous, undisturbed birth, while supporting you to thrive in your business and personal life.

"The amount of growth as a person and as a birth keeper I've experienced from being a student of the Radical Birth Keeper School is shocking.

As an established midwife, I wasn't sure how much would be applicable to my profession or useful. My favorite section came as a surprise. I LOVED the "self mastery" and business discussions within the group.

The practical skills and exercises on how to better communicate with not only the families I work with but every relationship in my life is invaluable. Learning how to bring up taboo topics and have honest conversations with parents that no one else is willing to have with them. The connections I'm building with families is deeper than I've ever experienced and so much more aligned with my needs as a birth keeper."

"True midwifery, in my view, is absolutely an expression of power and authority, yes -- but not power or authority over a birthing woman. Rather, power and authority in your capacity as a midwife to hold the energy of birth with integrity, to know birth, and to be in right action, right speech, and right relationship with the work, with yourself, and with the women that you're serving and her family."

- Yolande Norris-Clark

"How a woman emerges from her birth experience will largely make or break her spirit. When a woman feels as if she is dying, and she is being held in reverence, exalted, with a thread of love running from her heart to yours, there is no spiritual or physical experience she cannot navigate in power.

This is the heart of the Radical Birth Keeper School. This is what we want to see more of all over the world. We are honored to support you, and every woman who receives the call to embody the work of radical birth keeping for the good of the world."
