Amy Long and Whapio Diane Bartlett
Doulas and Midwife
In this show, my two guests helped us remember the “Wise Woman Tradition” — the oldest known healing practice on our planet. Whapio Diane Bartlett of North Carolina and Amy Long of Georgia are practitioners of this tradition. A core belief of the Wise Woman Tradition is that a woman contains within an innate wisdom to guide her through the experience of birth and delivery. Whapio and Amy are Doulas, trained and experienced in the art of providing continuous physical, emotional and womanly support to mothers and their families before, during and after birth. They empower their clients by helping them balance ancient traditions with current medical practices as needed, to maximize the positive outcomes of the birth experience for all involved.
Most pregnant women are removed from their innate wisdom and power centers and subjected to impersonal and sometimes invasive medical procedures to bring life into the world on a schedule that’s often not their own. Those who practice the Wise Woman Tradition also embrace the concept of healing wisdom passed from one generation to the next, and practice the womanly art of supporting and empowering those in need during all life transitions including birth, death, marriage, and crisis. If you’re a woman who seeks to understand your inner wisdom better, or if you’re involved with a woman who you’d like to empower, or if you wish to get more in touch with the divine feminine within you if you’re a man, than join us for this fascinating trip back through time on Native Wisdom where we strive to remember who we are and what we know!
