BIRTHING FROM WITHIN
Many people have access to knowledge. This class is for people who want to go deeper and access embodied learning and inner wisdom.
It is those traits that will empower you, and your partner, to finally feel READY and ABLE to do what needs to be done to give birth to your baby in love and awareness.
We believe that evidence-based information + soulful preparation for birth = just the right mix!
Not your first baby? Consider our Birthing Again Class.
The six week and weekend classes are wonderful and many parents who have birthed before get a great deal out of the classes. But we know that you may not have time and energy for a full 14 hour class, so we offer a mini session for parents who have birthed before. Follow this link to learn more about our Birthing Again childbirth refresher classes.
Curious to learn more about the experience of a Birthing from Within childbirth class? Here are answers to some Frequently Asked Questions:
At Thresholds we approach life transitions like engagement, birth and parenting as a Rite of Passage, a time to learn about and grow closer to yourself and to your partner. With the use of story telling, process art, and mindfulness we help people access their own strength and wisdom.
Birthing From Within classes can be taken any time during your pregnancy. People often take it sometime in the last trimester. Before your due date is always best.
Thresholds does our best to make sure that every family who wishes to take our classes is able. If finances are the only reason you don't sign up please email about scholarship and payment plan options. > Learn more...
The instructors are listed on all pages. Depending on our on-call doula schedule, client needs, we do not always know who will be teaching what class. If you have specific questions please be in touch.
Yes! Our class has very little crossover to traditional information based classes. Many parents take both types of classes and value the different needs that each workshop is providing.
A Note from Amity:
Years ago I believed that if a person took the right classes, read enough books, or ate the right foods that their birth would be smooth and easy. After a few years of being a doula I learned that that was NOT the case. I saw people who did everything “right”, who still were left feeling awful and wishing for a different birth. I knew there was a better way. That is when I encountered the magic of Birthing From Within. By focusing on this experience (whatever it is) as a Rite of Passage, not a medical event; every single parent can have a meaningful birth experience.
