Preparing you to give birth again…

Birthing Again workshops serve as a unique opportunity for you to reflect on both your first birth and this pregnancy and upcoming birth, learn new skills, and explore the changes to come as a growing family.

Many clients wonder if they really “need” another prenatal class. Those that take the leap and join us for Birthing Again find that while they benefit from new skills and the chance to reflect on this birth as a new experience, they cherish the opportunity to simply focus on This pregnancy, baby, and birth for one afternoon.

Why take a prenatal class the second time around?

  • “If preparing for the first baby is like preparing for a marraige, then the Birthing Again workshop was like renewing our vows; vows to each other as a couple and also to our children, our family.”
  • “Even though my husband had to work this past weekend and I was on my own for the day, it was amazing! I truly didn’t realize until I was there sharing stories how many expectations and feelings that I was still carrying from our first birth, so for me, this weekend was incredibly cathartic.”

  • “I attribute what I learned to making our experience this time so gentle and magical. I am a believer, not only for birth, but in using the techniques you taught to cope with being a mom of two. You are giving people a wonderful gift!”
  • “Somehow, I would have expected this birth to be horribly painful with the short labour and big baby, but it was amazing, and your class helped me overcome the fears I had and for us to communicate better during the process.”
  • “After the workshop I did some big soul searching and entertained the idea of a home birth after cesarean. It was beautiful and incredibly healing for me. Thank you for the role you played in prompting me to dig deeper into my birth story from my son’s birth and find the courage to trust myself again.”
