Complete Childbirth Class
Complete Childbirth Class~ a six-week series of dynamic, organic, gourmet childbirth classes ~
Complete preparation for any possible thing that arises in birth! We focus on doing the next best thing, in love and awareness.
• Building a Pain-coping Mindset – tried and true ways of managing pain (emotional or physical), a different one in each class! We spend more than 1/3 of each class on pain coping practices.
• Navigating LaborLand - Not a regurgitation of Obstetrical Information, rather, assistance in self-discovery where you uncover your own best ways of coping with the unknown of labor and birth.
• Three Kinds of Knowing – Primordial knowing: your innate maternal instinct, Modern knowing: being savvy about what’s happening in the hospital, and *most* importantly, Knowing thyself: before you can know where you are going, you need to know from where you came and where you stand now.
• Exploring Possibilities – We serve the whole birth pie, not just a sliver of “ideal” birth scenarios. Those are easy to fantasize about and nearly impossible to achieve!
• Fathers and Partners – We acknowledge that fathers and partners are opening to the profound power of birth too! We share practical tips for coping – yours AND hers – and what’s really needed from you to support the birth process.
• Working Through Fears – Cage a birth tiger once and for all!
• When Medical Support Is Needed – How to give birth from within, even when an epidural or a cesarean birth becomes necessary.
• Looking Ahead to Postpartum Life – What you *really* need to line up in order to have a smooth postpartum transition.
Birthing From Within Childbirth Classes meet for six weeks, on weekday evenings from 6:30pm – 9:00 pm.
