Birth is always intense and always brings surprises…are you ready?
Birthing From Within recognizes that childbirth is more than just a set of medical occurrences (effacement and dilation, contractions and pushing). Every birth - whether medicated or unmedicated, cesarean or vaginal - 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. So while accurate medical information is important, a childbirth education class that offers only information leaves expecting parents underprepared for the full impact of the experience.
In this 12-hour Birthing From Within class, you will certainly learn up-to-date, evidence-based information about birth. But you will also explore additional layers of understanding through hands-on activities, physical practice, open dialogue, and examination of multiple perspectives, 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.
LGBTQ+ and all diverse families welcome. If you are experiencing financial hardship, please inquire about sliding scale fees and payment plans: email@example.com.
