From the comparative isolation of her farm base at Wal Wal, Unmani has been part of a deeply connected ongoing women’s circle for well over fifteen years which meets twice yearly usually in the Melbourne/Tasmanian area.
Led by a remarkable woman – Shivam Rachana, this experience helps provide her with an understanding of the power that comes from a group who listen, validate and respect each woman as she speaks her story. Unmani has been a re-birthing practitioner, and has studied Tantra and hypnosis with the centre for Human Transformation.
She currently works with The International College of Spiritual Midwifery helping promote gentler birthing options and practices.

Conscious Birthing in the Wimmera
The following are real women (living in this geographic region) who have recently or in the past been deeply and personally involved and committed to birthing.
They may have attended a birthing centre, a hospital or experienced a home birth. Some have needed to travel a great distance to get the support they needed.
They may be mid-wives, mothers, grandmothers or a combination of these. They are very happy to talk to you and give of their wisdom and insights based on their experience. This list is not exhaustive. It is a starting point for anyone wishing to go further.
