The Calling is going to challenge you, inspire you, and enlighten you. Listen along as Emilee and Yolande 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. 

Emilee Saldaya and Yolande Norris-Clark

are the dynamic power couple of the sovereign birth world.


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. 

In the wake of the epic success of The Complete Guide to Freebirth, the two women immediately saw the need to share their knowledge of authentic birth keeping more widely. The launch of The Radical Birth Keeper School in 2020 finally offered aspiring independent midwives an integral, effective container and training program. 

Women flocked to the RBK School from every corner‚Äďincluding medical midwives, OB/GYNs, institutional doulas, and those new to birth-work‚Äďall eager to learn and implement the skills required to support their sisters with integrity, and to take their place in the professional realm of independent birth.¬†Since its inception, the RBK School has sold out every round, and there are now over 500 graduates from 30 different countries walking the path of sovereign birth-keeping.

Constantly innovating, Emilee and Yolande are continuously building new opportunities for sharing the transformation available when women step into true devotion to their individual power and the power of sisterhood.
