BIRTH IS A POWERFUL RITE OF PASSAGE


flower"Rachel was very personable and informative. We loved the little surprises throughout the course and the focus on each other. 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!"

STILL UNSURE IF BIRTHING FROM WITHIN IS THE RIGHT CLASS FOR YOU?

Join us for Ancient Map for Modern Birth: A Taste of Birthing From Within. This one evening introductory class will introduce you to the Birthing From Within approach to childbirth education. You will have the chance to meet Rachel, ask any questions you have about Birthing From Within, and be guided through a labyrinth making process.

Your introductory class investment is only $20* and can be applied towards a full series if you choose. If you decide not to move forward with a full series, you will still walk away with a deeper understanding of birth as a rite of passage and new insights into your own beliefs and values surrounding birth and postpartum.

*The registration fee reserves space for two people (the pregnant person and their designated support person)

It's exactly what my husband and I were needing. Thank you again Ericka and Rachel for sharing your time and love for couples in this precious time of their lives."
