Brittany Jade Gelinas

Educator, midwife, herbalist and founder of Original Instructions School
Courses offered in the fields of: Herbalism, Midwifery & Traditional Medicine

Brittany Jade began her theoretical training and practicum of midwifery, herbalism and natural healing while still in her teens. After receiving her herbalism and midwifery trainings in Asheville, North Carolina, Brittany moved to Peru.  There, she lived alongside and practiced medicine within rural Quechua, Qero and Shippibo communities for a decade. For the past six years Brittany has produced and taught outstanding original trainings in the fields of herbalism and midwifery around the globe. She is blessed to have learned from a handful of indigenous medicine people who have guided her in her practice.

While she has spent a significant part of her life in  South America, Brittany has also remained rooted to ancestral practices and traditional beliefs stemming from North American indigenous nations. She approaches her work as an educator, herbalist, midwife and healer through her experiential knowledge of the Original Instructions for humanity. She approaches her work and her life with a sense of humility and with the hope that her way of living would make her Ancestors proud.
