Why study with Wellmother?

You will be working with teachers who specialise in the Extraordinary Vessels and maternity work and you will be part of a global network of practitioners working to support women.

You can attend a foundation course to see how much you enjoy our approach. These include courses on aspects of the Extraordinary Vessels, not only maternity work.  You can choose to attend all or some of the specialist maternity modules: Pregnancy, Birth and Postnatal (Mother and Baby).

Once you have completed all the modules, you will receive the Wellmother Diploma and you can go on our register and continue to develop your work.

Doing Suzanne’s course was such a source of true inspiration for me. It gave me the real confidence to work with pregnant women and to use the deep work with the extraordinary vessels.

When I was in my final days of my pregnancy, there was nobody I wanted to see more! Suzanne’s shiatsu was so grounding, present and releasing
