Seattle & Eastside Birthing from Within childbirth classes
I teach Birthing From Within childbirth classes classes in a variety of Eastside, Seattle and Tacoma locations as well as private, in-home classes. See my childbirth class schedule or contact me to schedule your private childbirth class.
This 5 or 6 week, evening childbirth class series, or weekend intensive, is interactive, full of great information, fun, thought-provoking, and friendship-forming. All couples receive a notebook with handouts on the class topics.
This class provides a balance between learning the information most parents are seeking regarding labor, birth and early parenting and providing activities for introspection and connection as a couple.
Parents leave more confident and feeling that they will be able to access their own inner wisdom to meet the challenges of labor, birth and parenting.
Investment is $295 per couple.
Each of my childbirth classes includes:
- understanding stages of labor and how labor works
- learning effective pain-coping mindset, practices, positions and comfort measures for birth
- eating and exercise for pregnancy and postpartum
- creative learning tools such as role plays, educational games, and birth art

- and much more! Each class is tailored to your unique needs.
