Birth professionals sense that something is broken in the birth system. They want to be a part of the solution, but aren’t sure how to affect change.

Despite childbirth educators’ and doulas’ best efforts, many parents emerge from the birth experience feeling lost, like they didn’t have the resources they needed.

Many conventional birth preparation and support methods rely on information-gathering as the sole means of preparing people for birth. When that doesn’t work, parents and professionals alike often feel inadequate, frustrated, and traumatized.

At Birthing From Within, we feel the pain and injustice of this imbalanced system, which is why we’ve forged a different path. For over 20 years, Birthing From Within childbirth educators and doulas have been preparing parents for birth in a way that does not rely solely on information, instead awakening their inner knowing, connecting them with their partners, and helping them uncouple their self-worth from medical outcomes.

We guide birth professionals to feel inspired, confident, and equipped with tools that prepare parents for intensity, uncertainty, and the journey into the unknown. In these accessible, innovative, and personally relevant programs, you’ll gain specific skills that will help you lead parents through activities and processes that will holistically inform and prepare them for the often winding path of birth.

Now is the time for you to dive in and become the inspired, confident, open-hearted, and well-resourced birth professional that you are meant to be.
