Birthing From Within

In this class, we will use multi-sensory experiences to learn how labor works, what labor looks like, various comfort measures and positions for labor, and several pain coping practices. We will also examine the instinctual aspects of the birthing process while processing the emotional journey of birthing. This course is based on the Birthing From Within philosophy. Parents will learn through interactive and creative participation, in a spirit of fun and curiosity.

Participants will:

  • Explore assumptions about pain
  • Learn and practice pain-coping techniques
  • Transform their fears in order to birth in awareness
  • Honor childbirth as a profound Rite of Passage
  • Develop and strengthen communication, trust and confidence during labor and beyond
  • Learn what to expect of labor and birth
  • Learn about roles of partners and birth companions
  • Learn how to source practical information and make conscious decisions
  • Use their imaginations to consider a range of possibilities for labor and birth
  • Learn about the physical and emotional process of labor and birth
  • Learn about postpartum recovery
  • Learn techniques for welcoming their baby and bonding as a family
Instructor recommends taking course at the end of your second trimester or any time during your third trimester.
