Birthing From Within Childbirth Classes

Unique. Holistic. Transformational. Birthing From Within childbirth classes help you prepare mindfully for the birth of your baby. During our time together, you will learn new information, deepen your connection with your partner and your own intuition, and prepare for the life changes a new baby brings.

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!"
