Based off of the groundbreaking book, this two-day Birthing From Within™ immersion class is for expectant parents who are seeking a more interactive and in-depth way to prepare for birth and parenthood. These classes are the antithesis of being talked at and shown cervical dilation charts! With a balance of rich dialogue, a tool-box worth of pain-coping techniques, practical information and introspective processes, parents walk away from class feeling confident, connected and empowered - and have a lot of fun too.
Highlights of what classes cover:
- Creating a supportive environment in the hospital, birth center or home.
- Learning and practicing proven pain-coping techniques.
- Giving partners specific and practical tips for how they can support themselves and the laboring mother.
