• Birthing From Within ClassBirthing From Within Class

    In the Birthing From Within classes, inspired by Pam England’s book Birthing From Within, the essence of childbirth education is self-discovery. These classes are extraordinary childbirth preparation, and focus on women and partner’s transitions into parenthood, and the birth of yourself as a Mother.   We talk about natural childbirth in these classes, medicated birth, laboring techniques, and water birth.  I also cover pain-coping practices, stages of labor, home birthing and hospital birthing (in case of a transfer), medications and cesarean births, so that couples have a wide range of information.

     I also weave storytelling, process art, song, dance, massage and journaling into the class content as well.     

    We practice breathing exercises, massage techniques for partners to help during labor, meditation, mindfulness, and effective communication.  Classes are usually 5 weeks, and are held on Thursday night, 6:45 – 9pm.

    The next session runs from March 3rd through March 13th:

    Thursday March 3 6:00 p.m. – 9:30 p.m.
    Thursday March 10 6:00 p.m. – 9:30 p.m.
    Sunday March 13 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
