About Us

Eden Birthworkers is a collective of birth workers on the Garden Route in South Africa with a special focus on home birth rights and activism, compassionate birth principles, and reproductive rights access.

We believe that every birthing person has the right to birth where and with whom they choose. 

We offer evidence-based online classes and in-person workshops with the goal of empowering and educating expecting families.

We also offer several classes for birth professionals, including doula training, in an effort to address several systemic issues in reproductive healthcare. 

Though our focus is trained mostly on education, we feel it is necessary to advocate for those affected by obstetric violence in our country. If you or someone you love has experienced coercion or violence at the hands of reproductive healthcare providers, click here.
