Birthing from Within® classes are dynamic, interactive preparation for childbirth as well as parenthood. During a six-week series, pregnant women and their partners practice being in labor; they acquire pain-coping techniques and tap into the intuitive knowing they already have about giving birth and parenting. Both mother and partner are prepared as whole people through education and initiation.
The next 6-week series begins December 5th. Space is limited. Classes are with Birthing from Within® Mentor Maya Hawthorn and meet Wednesdays, 6:30-8:30p.m., at Shine.
