Birthing From Within Childbirth Classes
Birthing From Within (BFW) professionals know that authentic birth preparation begins within. BFW views pregnancy, birth, and postpartum as a rite of passage into parenthood. As such, these classes offer practical knowledge together with embodied practices based on self-discovery which encourage parents to dig a little deeper into their desires, fears, and expectations surrounding childbearing. Through this process, parents discover a deeper internal knowing, a road map through the ups and downs of childbirth and parenthood so that even when you may be unsure of what to do next, you can find a way through;.
