Birthing From Within - Weekend Immersion (Friday 6pm-9pm, Saturday 2pm-6pm, Sunday 11am-6pm)

In this class, we will use multi-sensory experiences to learn how labor works, what labor looks like, various comfort measures and positions for labor, and several pain coping practices. We will also examine the instinctual aspects of the birthing process while processing the emotional journey of birthing. This course is based on the Birthing From Within philosophy. Parents will learn through interactive and creative participation, in a spirit of fun and curiosity.

Participants will:

  • Explore assumptions about pain

  • Learn and practice pain-coping techniques

  • Transform their fears in order to birth in awareness

  • Honor childbirth as a profound Rite of Passage

  • Develop and strengthen communication, trust and confidence during labor and beyond
