Birthing From Within
Prenatal classes come in all sizes and shapes and do not always focus on the same material. While hospital prenatal classes tend to focus on nuts and bolts about birth, Birthing From Within focuses on giving you hands on coping practice to build your confidence for the physical and emotional challenges of labour in addition to the birthing basics.
Our prenatal classes give special attention to partner(s)’ needs for birth preparation in every activity. What will partners or birth support need to feel confident? How will they cope with moments of fear and how do they know when and how to advocate for during labour? Birth partners very much appreciate our classes because of the attention we allot to their unique questions and experience of birth.
Our prenatal classes prepare parents for all birth possibilities, because to be fully prepared for birth, it helps to become familiar with multiple possible birth outcomes. In our class, we prepare parents for both vaginal and cesarean birth, medicated and unmedicated birth, spontaneous labour and labour through induction.
There is no “better” way to give birth. What you feel most supported by will have the biggest positive impact on your birth experience. What unfolds isn’t always in our control so considering the unexpected allows you to feel resourceful, ready and present no matter which way your baby is born.
