Birthing From Within offers a modern, dynamic approach to childbirth education.
Childbirth is more than just a set of medical events. 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. Cataloguing facts about anatomy and medical procedures and practicing particular techniques for breathing or relaxation can be reassuring, but these types of learning alone may not be adequate preparation for the deep physical, psychological, and relational transformations that birth brings. Birthing From Within classes give you the information that feels so necessary, while also working through less rigid, more personal learning modalities in order to prepare you 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(s) as a source of support, protection, and connection for the birthing parent and the baby.
Prevent or minimize emotionally difficult birth.
