Celebrate Birth! 5-week series offers a way to prepare for birth that brings together new and traditional wisdom, your own life experiences, and your inner strength and abilities.
You will learn practical gems of wisdom that will see you through the days of your pregnancy and early parenting. And, you will discover the patterns and rhythms of childbirth that will nurture confidence and your ability to think, speak, and act purposefully during this important time.
Everyone has experienced doubt, insecurity, and uncertainty during pregnancy, labor, birth and breastfeeding—that’s normal. In this class, we will help you recognize normal patterns in pregnancy and labor and the common pitfalls that can steer you off course. Celebrate Birth! will help you tap into your inner strengths and wisdom so you can make decisions in a conscious, grounded way for you and your baby.
Birth partners are highly encouraged to participate in this class. You will learn the patterns and rhythms of birth, which will help you follow cues from the laboring person and support them during labor.
Class size is intentionally small—under 10 families—so that there is plenty of time for questions and community building with parents-to-be.
