Crowning Lotus Doula Services is bringing the Zulu Birth Project to Grand Rapids for a two day training. Part of the tour includes a free community event. This event will include a chance to meet the founders of the Zulu Birth project and is free and open to the community.

The Zulu Birth Project is a multinational initiative to reach across time and borders to share ancient African birthing practices in support of mothers-to-be, their families and the birth workers who serve them. Zinzile Seepie and Tanya Parker, two awe-inspiring mothers, activists and advocates, have come together with their knowledge, experience and passion for women and families to do something about birth and how we care for mothers, for ourselves, and each other. They have created a tour where along the way they will not only teach ancient African traditions for birth, baby wearing and beyond - they will create a Global Community.
