BIRTHING FROM WITHIN classes offer a complete approach in childbirth preparation. The process of preparing for birth and parenthood is not complete if it does not offer the opportunity for self discovery and reflection. In a BIRTHING FROM WITHIN class you are valued and supported as you discover yourself as a birthing mother. As a birth partner and co-parent you will be given the opportunity to embrace and understand yourself in that role.
Many parents worry about the challenges of labor and birth. Each class begins with a different pain-coping practice that not only works to bring comfort during the birth process but can also be practiced within everyday life. Classes include comprehensive education to bring understanding about what to expect during labor and birth. Common interventions are understood and students discover how to advocate for themselves and work with their healthcare team.
Students discuss what to expect after the birth as well. Baby care and breastfeeding is addressed along with common physical, emotional and relationship expectations.
Classes are always multi-sensory giving opportunity for lively discussion, film, and many hands-on activities. Each class varies in order to fit the unique needs of the individuals in that particular class. BIRTHING FROM WITHIN classes do not address students with a “one size fits all” approach as many childbirth preparation classes do. Only you know what you need to give birth. Our BIRTHING FROM WITHIN classes are designed to help you on that path of personal self-discovery, empowerment and birth satisfaction.
