Birthing From Within Childbirth Classes
There’s only so much Google can tell you about childbirth and parenting. Birthing From Within classes help you prepare for your transition to parenting by going deeper than just the facts. During our time together you will learn new information AND you will also spend time cultivating your intuition, deepening your connection with your soon-to-be-born baby and your partner, and exploring your own beliefs and values around birth and parenting.
Giving birth and becoming a parent is a powerful rite of passage. Prepare with your whole heart, mind, and soul.
"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!"

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 >>
