Birthing From Within is a childbirth prep course that is evidence based and current, with a focus on real tools to use in birth and in life. We utilize the right and the left brain—facts and evidence paired with subconscious exploration of hopes & fears.
My goal is to help you & your partner feel CONFIDENT, to raise awareness for birth OPTIONS, and to PREPARE you while expecting the unexpected…
As a certified mentor with a background in physiology, core recovery, prenatal wellness & yoga, and doula services, this class may include:
- anatomy of pregnancy & birth

- decision making for the unexpected
- partner support

Class sizes are limited to 3-5 couples. Clients have access to a lending library and my support through the rest of pregnancy with any questions via email, text, or phone.
