You've already experienced the journey of childbirth and parenthood. You've read all the books. You know the facts. You still have questions, and the questions you're asking now are different than the first time around. You suspect that the answers you seek can't be found outside of yourself, but within. If this resonates with you, I am excited to offer you this six-week Birthing From Within childbirth preparation course: Birthin' Again. In this class you will have an opportunity to tell your birth story in a way that nurtures healing and growth. You will explore your experience of the childbearing year in terms of the most ancient and universal human story: The Hero's Journey. You will discover your Living Question that will help you to know what to do when you don't know what to do. Each class also contains plenty of direct experience with mindfulness practices that you can use when coping with intensity as well as practical tips that you can use to help support your body's natural processes, make informed decisions, plan for postpartum, and be there for the laboring mother.
