Join me this July and August for a childbirth class that incorporates the wisdom of Birthing From Within with the evidence-based information that is considered pertinent knowledge for all birthing parents. In the six weeks we spend together we will cover the must-knows of birth and postpartum, including topics such as the following:

  • Phases and stages of labor
  • Laboring and birthing positions
  • Birthing in awareness via up-to-date evidence-based research
  • Understanding informed consent
  • Intended and unintended outcomes of common birth interventions
  • Best support practices for partners and other members of your birth team
  • Mindfulness and pain-coping techniques
  • The fourth trimester (postpartum)
  • Breastfeeding and newborn care
  • Local resources

What makes this class unique is the way we go about the actual birth and postpartum preparation. Together we will focus on unearthing your own internal wisdom as parents, while simultaneously familiarizing yourselves with the modern map of birth used in America today.

By choosing to not adhere to a rigid class structure, and by incorporating art and discussion with traditional lecture, participants are able to go deeper within themselves and gain the confidence required to practice embracing the unknown. After all, that's what birth is essentially - a great unknown. And the only way to truly prepare for an initiation of this magnitude is to connect with your own personal inner knowing surrounded by those who value you, hear you and support your growth.

This fully comprehensive and powerful six-week childbirth class series will leave you feeling aware, present, connected and capable of becoming the parent you've been called to be. Register now, space is limited.
