Birthing From Within: A Mind-Body Approach to Childbirth Preparation

Download a PDF flyer about this class: Birthing From Within 2014

Birthing From Within classes go beyond what other childbirth classes offer. They prepare parents for how they will really experience labor. You will learn practical information through a multisensory approach that engages mind and body, with thought-provoking dialogues, introspective exploration processes, and interactive activities to help you discover what you need to know to be resourceful giving birth and on the journey to parenthood. Each class is individualized to meet the unique needs of its participants.

These classes are complete childbirth preparation, covering the material in more traditional classes, such as the stages and physiology of labor, pushing, what to expect from and when to call your provider, and much more. Together, we practice and master a variety of mindfulness and proven pain coping techniques, including breathwork, visualization, physical positioning and massage for comfort and progress.

Highlights of what classes cover:

  • creating a birth space that will help you open in labor
  • effective pain coping practices & comfort measures
  • partners support skills
  • how to “lose it” in labor
  • working with fear
  • communicating effectively with your provider
  • compassionate use of drugs and interventions
  • welcoming your baby
  • reclaiming the spirituality of birth
Price: $395 per couple
Location: 3689 18th St, San Francisco
