Birthing From Within remembers and honors that birth is a heroic journey,

thus unearthing the ancient maps for modern birth.

Birth is an epic and transformative experience.

It all begins with you.

Birthing From Within prepares you for your path as a birth professional, enhances the professional path you are already on, walks alongside you, and helps you integrate your past, present, and future in birth work. We will guide you in leading new processes that serve as a catalyst for personal growth, creativity, confidence, knowledge, and broader awareness of all that occurs in the childbearing year.

Start by Crossing the Threshold...

...into personal inquiry and transformation.

Whether you are an experienced birth professional or just getting started, your first step into Birthing From Within is to attend Crossing the Threshold, our unique in-person retreat.  This two-and-a-half day workshop immerses you in the ancient maps that can guide the modern birth experience and enable you to approach your work from a new perspective.

Crossing the Threshold includes a subsequent four-week online course called the Heart of Mentoring, which will further introduce you to the Birthing from Within philosophy and approach. Together these serve as the foundation for our certification programs: Doula From Within™ and Ancient Maps for Modern Birth Education™, as well as our Experienced Professionals Pathway.

Do you want to bring an open heart and deep compassion to birth? We begin your doula training by exploring what motivates you to do this work.

Doula From Within™ blends understanding the birth process and labor support techniques with cultivating personal growth, creativity and confidence within yourself and those you work with.

Birthing From Within offers a modern interpretation of childbirth education, tapping into ancient inner knowing in conjunction with evidence-based modern knowing, and teaching you to provide deep, meaningful guidance to those in their childbearing years.


Do you struggle with how to respond to difficult birth stories? We know that mindful listening has the power to inspire transformation.
