Birth Class

What's more fun than kinesthetic learning? Kinesthetic teaching.
Is there a term to describe the learning exchange, the knowing that occurs when souls connect?
I love First Class. I have a sketch in my head but no syllabus. It is a free flowing exchange known on my schedule as "Beginning Your Journey." More accurately, WE are beginning our journey as a Birth Class family. I love this part of my life, love my opportunity to guide couples to their own "right way".

From Birthing From Within

The essence of childbirth preparation is self-discovery, not assimilating obstetric information.

The teacher is "midwife" to the parent's discovery process, not the expert from whom wisdom flows.

Childbirth preparation is a continually evolving process (for parents and teachers), not a static structure of techniques and knowledge.

Fathers help best as birth guardians or loving partners, not as coaches; they also need support.

I love this class of 5 couples already. I love the 5 little growing ones that we have not yet met. Before we know it, Last Class will happen. It is a festivity that I look forward to.
Here we go . . .

I love that.

I would love to take Birthing From Within on the next go round. Not announcing anything...just sayin':)
Would you mind if I came and sat in on a class sometime?
