“The innate caretaking side ALL MEN HAVE comes out in the birth room.”

Many men are scared of birth or think it doesn’t involve them. Dr. T’karima Ticitl shares how fathers can play an instrumental role in this sacred ceremony and show up in service to their woman. Dr. T’karima is both medically trained and indigenously informed, giving her a rare mastery of the practical and spiritual aspects of birth. We explore dynamics and principles WAY BEYOND birth, including how to balance Western medicine with tradition, how to walk in ceremony 24/7, and why community is often more like family than our blood relatives.
