Birthing From Within recognizes that childbirth is more than just a set of medical occurrences. Every birth - whether medicated or unmedicated, vaginal or cesarean - is an incredibly intense physical and emotional experience full of unpredictable turns. It is also an irreversible rite of passage, a gateway to an entirely different life. The Birthing From Within approach gives you the information you need, while also preparing your mind and heart to:
Experience birth as a physical, emotional, and cultural rite of passage.
Birth in awareness, whatever the location, outcome, or events of the birth.
Fully integrate the birth partner as a source of support, protection, and connection for the birthing parent and the baby.
Prevent or minimize emotionally difficult births.
