Birthing From Within and Lamaze
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 and Lamaze classes 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.
So what’s the difference between our types of classes?
We have instructors who are certified through both training organizations and both are amazing! In both classes you’ll get evidence-based information, a non-judgmental presentation of information, and a great class experience.
The focus of our Lamaze classes is on having FUN. We do a lot of activities to help you learn the info as you enjoy yourselves. We tend to laugh a lot and bring light to a new form of education that you can actually look forward to. And we promise, Lamaze has NOTHING to do with hee-hee-whoo breathing 🙂
Birthing From Within has a goal of inspiring personal transformation and create a new lens through which to see yourself and others. We have a goal to reveal the wisdom of the ancient maps for the childbearing years, and to bridge modern science with ancient knowledge without a focus on one over the other.
