Birthing From Within Prenatal Classes
Our classes are a unique, dynamic experience; where parents will be actively engaged in discussion, role play, art, & personal exploration, as well as practical information gathering. Partners will find themselves included as equals, who are also being ‘birthed’ as new parents.
Parents are not promised a specific outcome, or told they will get their ideal birth- instead they are Mentored onto a path of Awareness; of themselves, their understanding of birth & their deep-rooted strengths. Parents will come to “Know what to do, when they don’t know what to do.“, and be ready to “Do the Next Best Thing”, whatever arises in their labor & postpartum.
Classes are often offered as multi-week group sessions, private classes with a single couple, or weekend/1 day intensives; making finding a class to fit your life simpler. Each Mentor brings their own personality & style to their classes, no two classes are exactly alike!

Birth Story Listening®
The birth experience is a powerful, life-changing moment- no matter where or how you give birth. Parents may find that in the hustle and bustle of new parenting that they are telling their birth story to family and friends, but not deeply exploring or processing that experience. If the birth experience was difficult or disappointing, parents may find those feelings being invalidated (or hyper-validated) by themselves and others.
Birth Story Listening® (also called Birth Story Medicine®) is a positive, uplifting way for parents to speak out loud about their experience, their feelings, and their needs, and find resolution and healing in the process.
