After every session we felt a real "high" and connection with each other. The labyrinth analogy was very helpful during labour as well as postpartum. We loved the positions we learned and the tips and tricks for baby! Such a great course and would recommend to anyone!"

WHO TEACHES YOUR CHILDBIRTH CLASSES?

Our classes are facilitated by Rachel Parris.

CAN YOU PROVIDE ME WITH A SYLLABUS?

While there are certain essential topics that are always covered in our classes, one of the underlying philosophical assumptions of Birthing From Within is that you, as a class participant, bring valuable knowledge and unique needs into our shared space. Which means that we adjust our teaching as we go, to co-create the class content with you.

That's a long winded way of saying, no, there isn't a syllabus. If you have specific questions about topics covered, we would be happy to chat further with you >> Book a free, 15 minute phone chat.
