How It Works

These private Birthing from Within childbirth classes are held on Zoom. We'll meet for two, 2-hour classes, where you'll learn about the birth process, and how you and your birth partner can cope and support one another through it.

In addition to our four hours of one-on-one class time, you'll also receive supplemental videos to explain the nuts and bolts of birth. That way we can spend our time together on hands-on, interactive learning.

After you register you'll have immediate access to online videos and resources, as well as a scheduling link to set up our private sessions at a time that works for your family.
