Sacred Feminine Birthing

Reigniting the wisdom of the feminine in pregnant women for the birthing process of new souls. This will be a combination of digital learning coupled with LIVE classes from the instructor .

(This class is being moved to a digital format. More details to come.) 

This Childbirth Class focuses on the importance of a healthy pregnancy, healthy baby, and healthy family. We emphasize the important role of a labor partner (or other supportive individual) as the birth coach, who supports the mother throughout pregnancy, birth, and beyond. You and your coach will feel well prepared even in the event of complications. In my classes you will learn about:

• Training for your partner, so that he or she can provide you with loving support while acting as your informed advocate 
• Natural breathing
• Relaxation techniques for pain management
•The emotional stages of labor
•Connecting with each other and the baby
