Are you seeking a mindful way to prepare for your baby?

Birthing From Within® Childbirth Preparation classes provide expecting couples with tools that they will need to move through the unknowns of labor with presence and compassion.

Birth preparation isn't just learning the nuts and bolts - although that is a part of it! it's an emotional, psychological and physical preparation that takes time, courage, curiosity and patience. My Birthing From Within Birth classes meet you wherever you are on your journey to becoming a family and then offers guidance through your questions, inquiries, excitement and celebration of becoming parents.

Inspired by the landmark books by Pam England: Birthing From Within and Ancient Maps for Modern Birth and Ina May Gaskin's Guide to Childbirth, Rebecca's classes are solution-oriented, experiential and useful in guiding parents through what they will need to birth mindfully.

These inclusive, explorative, and compassionate classes welcome all variations of family structures and viewpoints. We truly believe there isn't ONE way to birth!

Praise for Rebecca's Classes

What Parents are Saying about Rebecca's Birth Classes

"I just wanted to pop in and say thank you. You came to our house for a private birthing class and we learned so much. I had a great home birth, and got to catch my baby myself. We went into the birth with no fear and just let ourselves experience it all and now we will forever treasure this memory.  My FAVORITE thing to use during my contractions was the rebozo! [My husband] was a master at it & it helped so much! Thanks to you!!" - Private Session Mama

[We] are so grateful to Rebecca for the immense teaching and mentoring leading up to this occasion.  Our confidence in the birth process and our ability to work as a team was truly made possible by this class.  We walked away from the birth feeling so satisfied and content with all of the decisions we made. - Mama'hood parents

"The birth experience was beautiful and perfect and everything I could have ever wished for. My water broke at midnight and [our baby] was in my arms at 4:49 a.m. I felt empowered and guided throughout the entire experience. I didn't use any medication and while pain was all encompassing, [we] used all of the tools that we practiced in your class. I remember using Edges the most. There was nothing that could prepare us, though, for the huge wave of love... it's indescribable. She's amazing. Thank you, Rebecca. For all of your guidance." - Mama'hood Parents

“We do indeed feel prepared for the birth.  I'm glad we took your class relatively early - now we have some time to reflect on what we learned... It was a great way for us to connect us a couple too - we feel we learned some valuable tools for being a team during the birth.  We missed having class last week!” - Mama'hood parents

"Rebecca demystified the birthing process for my partner and I, and I feel confident and empowered that I will be able to have the best birthing experience possible because of the training and information she provided."  - Christine & Mark, Lafayette
