While a Birthing From Within® class does cover all the same core information you would find in any prenatal class, our goal is to provide you with something more – offering a blend of information and practical tools together with a deeper sense of personal preparation for birth and new parenthood. This is childbirth preparation for your heart and mind. (Read more about Birthing from Within, a certification many of our experts have and a philosophy we follow/teach to).

We have an agenda of topics (below) we are always sure to cover, but we also strive to tailor the class to your unique needs and interests. The result? You enjoy a childbirth class that prepares you for the full spectrum of what birth can bring – so that you can enter the unknown of your unique birth with a sense of confidence, connection and creativity.

Our Vancouver locations for Birthing from Within prenatal classes include Hastings Sunrise, and Granville Island.
