Kathie Neff ★Certified Birthing From Within Educator Seasons Within
It has been my privilege to journey with parents for the last seven years as a Certified Birthing From Within Childbirth Educator. A certified DONA doula since 2011, my work now is primarily focused around Childbirth Preparation Classes and Birth Story Listening sessions to assist those who wish to re-frame the story surrounding the events of their birth.
My work as a doula and Childbirth Mentor enhances my growth as a human being and expands my inner spirit. Each set of parents, or class of new parents, come to me as both students and teachers since I learn something new from each one.
Continuing education as a BFW Mentor keeps me centered in deep insightful reading and experiences that include Great Stories & Myths and folklore from all ages. Training opportunities bring me to many life-enhancing retreats, mentor gatherings and continuous conversations that deepen my professional work.
When I am not teaching, or at a birth, I enjoy writing, collage art, cooking, and my huge, wonderful family. A resident of Riverside, CA for over fifty years, I still love the newness of a spring morning of bright blue skies and the sights & sounds of nature that bring me new life.
