Spring Classes 2021

 Thank you for stopping by, we are so grateful you did!

Dancing Star Birth has been serving the Greater Vancouver area for almost 20 years.  We have an excellent reputation and are highly recommended by Midwives, Doctors, and the greater birthing community.

We LOVE what we do and strive to provide the BEST prenatal classes for all expecting people and families. Following BC’s health authority guidelines, all of our classes have been temporarily moved to an online platform. We have appreciated the community’s patience, flexibility, and ongoing support with this ‘new way’ of doing things.  Considering our current on-line focus, we have decided to pause our classes for the next  3 months and take this opportunity to comprehensively revise our course materials and to make them more streamlined for on-line presentation.

 

We are looking forward to starting up our classes in Spring 2021.

“I highly Recommend Dancing Star prenatal classes to all our clients. The classes really make a difference how women feel about birth. I can always tell who has taken Birthing from Within when we’re in the labour room. There is a feeling of calm, knowledge and empowerment. The partners especially — they are so well informed that they are able to be great support.”

“Dancing Star Birth was suggested to us by our midwife who shared the they didn’t have a strong heteronormative tone to their classes. Our path then led us to book their prenatal class and, from the moment we arrived, we knew how special the weekend would be. The tone of the space, the thoughtfulness of our mentor Judy, her very presence of acceptance without words, the talk around how 6 couples now sitting in a comfortable room, with something so much in common but everyone on a different journey… Judy gave me the reality and beauty of both birth and postpartum, and reminded me that I was built for this however I gave birth. Our birth story was beautiful in part to many of Judy’s teachings and now we can’t stop sharing what a special part of our birth journey Dancing Star Birth was.”

“Though I am a midwife, I hadn’t given birth before and wanted to have the support and learning I’ve always recommended for clients. Birthing from Within was valuable in getting to know other couples as well as exploring techniques for coping with labour and strengthening our support for each other. We used these techniques and exercises in the weeks and months postpartum, too. So valuable! Judy helped me make the journey to motherhood a powerful and significant chapter in my life.  Months later, we still see our ‘Dancing Star friends’ in neighborhood and at gatherings.”
