Birthing From Within - for homebirth families


Parents and birth attendants can influence, but not control how a birth unfolds. Birthing From Within is a soulful and holistic approach that gives parents the tools to birth naturally and to birth-in-awareness when the journey takes unexpected turns.

BFW classes are unlike any other childbirth classes. Parents learn lots of practical information through thought-provoking dialogues, interesting videos, and memorable exercises. In this six-week series, parents practice and master a variety of proven pain-coping exercises and build their pain-coping confidence. Because this class is designed for homebirth couples, we will dive into the specifics of homebirth, how we all work as a team, including complications and if hospital transport becomes necessary.


In this 6-week series, learn How To:

• Create a birth space (wherever you are) that will help you open in labor

• Build a pain-coping mindset through proven concentration and mindfulness practices 

• “Lose it” in labor

• Comfort measures for labor, including long labors and back labors 

• Push your baby out

• Welcome your new baby

• Prepare for a gentle and mindful transition to parenthood

• Feed and care for your newborn

• Reclaim the spirituality of birth
