Birthing From Within Childbirth Education: A Complete Childbirth Course
Birthing From Within is a complete childbirth education class that offers parents practical information about the stages and physiology of early and active labor, nutrition-mindful eating, pain coping techniques and comfort measures, pushing and the birth of the baby; what to expect from medical providers, medications, procedures, and so on. Birthing From Within goes beyond traditional types of childbirth classes, and structures the class content to prepare parents for labor and birth, and to be at ease with not knowing: the element of chance that cannot be known about each and every birth. We move through a multi-sensory approach that engages and trains mind, body and intelligence to help you discover what you need to know and practice to be resourceful in birthing your baby. Each class is individualized to meet the unique needs of its participants. Birthing from Within offers parents a chance to tap into their innate wisdom, gain confidence, and deepen their connection to each other. These classes build a foundation of trust and resourcefulness, while moving through the mysterious, intense, and joyful process of becoming parents. We believe wholeheartedly that birth can be an empowering and positive experience, regardless of outcome and each women deserves respect, dignity, and love through this profound rite of passage.
Whether you are planning a home birth or hospital birth, hoping for an unmedicated labor, planning to use an epidural, or still exploring your options, Birthing From Within will help prepare you to stay present, mindful, and involved throughout your birthing process. We hold sacred this truth: there is no “right way” to birth your baby.
We hold the strong belief that we are preparing true Birth Warriors who do not hope, or distrust, or try to control their labor and birth. They do what needs to be done in the moment. She knows what to do when she doesn’t know what to do.
This class will be lead by Carolyn McPherson, a Birthing From Within Mentor and Doula, DONA trained Doula, E-RYT 500 and RPYT (Registered Prenatal Yoga Teacher).
This 6 week course meets on Sundays from 3-5pm from March 1-April 5th, and is $375. Pre-registration is required as we only hold class for 8 couples.
