Birthing From Within® PreNatal Yoga & Childbirth Preparation
Sundays 6PM - 8PM January 25 through March 1
Led by Catherina Simones
Honor and celebrate this scared rite of passage by preparing mentally, physically and emotionally for the process of childbirth and transition into parenting. Discover what YOU need to birth in awareness with yoga, education and art.
Build a foundation for birthing in awareness by exploring these topics:
-Breath-Awareness and Pain-Coping techniques for labor and life
-Confidence and communication building practices with your partner
-Useful positions and physical support for labor
-Compassionate use of medications and interventions
-Preventing or minimizing emotionally difficult births through compassionate, honest preparation
-Breastfeeding, Baby and Self-Care postpartum
The BIRTHING FROM WITHIN® approach differs from other childbirth methods by taking you beyond learning about birth, into an exploration of the spiritual and emotional realms of being in birth. This personal, inner learning is facilitated through thought-provoking dialogues, creative processes, experiential exercises, and more. These workshops honor the spirituality of birth and remind you that the journey through Laborland and Birth is a profound rite of passage.
This workshop is appropriate and beneficial for mothers at any stage of pregnancy.
