"Mexican Postpartum and Temazcal Ceremony"
The workshop begins with the introduction of Mexican Postpartum, followed by Temazcal sweat lodge ceremony and ending with the Closing of the bones hands-on practice.
Mexican postpartum traditions and rituals have been celebrated for centuries and are dedicated to caring for new mothers with the purpose of uplifting and soothing her body as well as her spirit. The rituals offer a new mother the opportunity to come back to herself, massaging, cleansing, purifying, relaxing and closing her body in a soothing and special way, with gratitude towards her as the source of life that she is.
Naoli’s Mexican Postpartum workshop is designed for all birth providers, offering understanding on both traditional and contemporary Mexican cosmology regarding the postpartum period as it is practiced in Mexico by rural midwives.
This workshop will prove specially interesting to birth professionals such as midwives, doulas, massage therapists, body workers, childbirth educators and any feminine soul interested in deepening their understanding on these topics or who may wish to offer this special and effective care for women in the postpartum period.
Newborn mothers are very welcome to support their personal transitions and deep healings after birth.
NB! Limited places!
Join Naoli in the celebration of an evening Temazcal experience.
In entering the Temazcal, we enter the "Womb of the Mother Earth" which is heated by the "grandmother stones" with the aid of the "grandfather fire". Within this womb, life-giving qualities are exalted, protected and nourished, and that which no longer serves us can be shed.
As we enter with a specific intention and awareness, the experience becomes transformative and profound.
The Temazcal provides a place where we are held and honored and where we hold and honor. It is a space of mental, emotional, physical and spiritual cleansing—preparing the way for new life.

"The Art of Birth with the Mexican Rebozo"
The workshop will include the essentials of the Art of Birth, some challenging births, and their resolution with the use of the Rebozo - a perfect combination of interrelated topics derived from the following Naoli's signature workshops, creating a special 2-day immersion program:
"The Art of Birth"
Immersion course for women and birth workers interested in deepening their knowledge and understanding of diverse processes surrounding birth, from practical, intuitive and spiritual approaches to birth, to the use of Mexican rebozo.
The art of accompanying birth is profoundly dependent on our understanding of our own sexuality, conception, a child’s life experience and the female perspective on all levels. Participants will be able to return to their birth practices possibly more enriched, nurtured and with new skills to apply.
Birth is a physiological event for which all beings are usually well prepared (in body, mind and spirit, of both mother and baby), however, in a small percentage of cases (10-15% according to the World Health Organization), it becomes essential to deliver special expert and wise care by the midwife or other professional assisting the birth. In these potentially critical situations, there are special techniques and practices upon which the mother's and baby's survival and health can depend. Vital, healthy and thriving mothers and babies are always a joyous celebration and, even though it is not always in our hands to control the outcome of a birth, it is of vital importance to count on knowledge and tools to invite life to stay and flourish.
"Rebozo for Birth"
The workshop has evolved from Naoli's 35+ years of experience as a home-birth midwife, applying and evolving this practice into a fine art of amazing practicality. The use of Rebozo for soothing, embracing and relaxing pregnant and birthing mothers, for preventing and solving childbirth difficulties as well as for the Mexican postpartum rituals will be the topics covered. Naoli's midwifery work with over 1700 births has given her ample opportunity to creatively solve many home birth challenges. From this, she has developed her own specialized original Rebozo birth techniques.
Possibility to buy your own original, hand-made, cotton Mexican Rebozo at the workshop!
If we will have pregnant women we can paint their bellies!
This workshop is recommended for midwives, nurses, doctors, doulas, therapists, childbirth educators, mothers/mothers-to-be and any feminine soul interested in deepening their understanding on these topics.
Birth practitioners can open up their scope of understanding on birth physiology and to review, practice and upgrade their skills in the prevention and resolution of birth challenges.
Birth professionals working at home or within the medical system will be able to benefit, bringing new tools and understanding into their practice.
“I have been teaching THE ART OF BIRTH workshop to thousands of women for over 25 years.
I created this workshop to combine the scientific understanding of the physiology of birth with ancient midwifery practices and the intuitive, creative wisdom of the feminine spirit.
My joy is to support birth practitioners and all women to come into their full potential as powerful, connected, and effective people in their practices and intimate life.”

"The commitment of the people to be together from the beginning to the end is good and right in the end and it will create the energy of the flow and spontaneity of the workshop.
My workshops are just like births, we can never know exactly what day and in what way we will learn everything. The only thing that is guaranteed is that we will leave the workshop as new, reborn, after we have explored and developed many concepts about ourselves and our work with childbirth and with women giving birth. The schedule of the workshop is open for flexibility and spontaneity because that's how each workshop is unique and special! I invite all participants to come with anticipation and commitment, with openness to learn much more than just about the birth!" Naoli
Meet the host
HypnoBirthing Childbirth Educator; Master Trainer at the HypnoBirthing Institute.
Founder of Gentle Birth School in Estonia (Pehme Sünni Kool).
Doula. Hypnotherapist-in-training, Master of Arts in Social Sciences.
As a mother of 3 lovely children, I have experienced a birth similar to stories you have certainly heard. After I found the HypnoBirthing method and had 2 amazing Hypnobirths, I’ve experienced a rebirth and growth as a woman and mom. I was amazed by how empowering birth can be, how much a woman can impact her birthing experience with preparation, education and trust in her body and baby, by learning relaxation techniques and creating positive mindset around the miracle of life.
In 2016 I became a certified HypnoBirthing Childbirth Educator and was the first to introduce HypnoBirthing – The Mongan method in Estonia. I am the founder of Gentle Birth School in Tallinn, training center devoted to support pregnant couples in their journey to gentle parenthood. Since 2020 I am a Faculty member and Master Trainer for HypnoBirthing Institute.
In 6 years Pehme Sünni Kool has grown into a team of 7 amazing women, mothers, doulas and midwives. We have supported over 1000 families, raised awareness in maternity hospitals about the benefits of hypnobirthing for better birth outcomes and received inspiring feedback from thankful families who have been able to welcome their little babies into this world gently and happily. I am a birth doula attending births and passionate about continuous education in pregnancy and birth programs and practices from all over the world.
I truly believe in the possibility of a gentle and joyous birth with the amazing relaxation techniques and traditional birth wisdom and am passionate to share my experiences and knowledge in guiding parents to achieve a positive birth.
I hope that every woman could have a beautiful birthing experience, starting from her very first.
The baby can only have one birth story, let it be the best.
