Birthing from Within® is a unique approach to childbirth preparation which allows parents to explore their deepest questions, and to reclaim and celebrate the right of passage of becoming a parent. Using creative processes, stories, and hands on activities parents learn how to connect with their inner wisdom marrying it with the modern knowledge necessary to birth in our culture. This gives parents the tools to make conscious choices in the moment and allows them to embrace their birth journey as their own.
Rich discussion, laughter and learning encourage parents to embrace birth as an evolving process and to let go of attachment to specific birth outcomes. Although classes are unique in that they progress according to the individual needs of the participants, areas explored include: the stages of labour, pain v’s suffering and proven pain coping practices, the birth partner’s role, creating your birth space, caesarean birth and medical support, caring for the newborn including feeding, attachment and baby’s temperament, soothing baby and more.
Birthing from Within classes are open to all mummas to be and birth partners and are ongoing at the Birth Tides Clinic. Short two to four hour workshops covering specific areas of the birth and parenting journey are offered as well as the full Birthing from Within series which consists of twelve hours comprehensive childbirth preparation available weekly and at weekends. If you are interested in more information or to register for classes please contact Sarah Hoffman at 250-218-3783, firstname.lastname@example.org, or the Birth Tides Clinic.
About Sarah Hoffman
“As a child is born so too are a mother and father”. As a magical time of change and transition, I am constantly amazed by the wonder of birth and the depth of self discovery and learning that having a baby can bring. Through our unique journeys we are connected by Birth as a right of passage and a beautiful celebration of life, love and spirit. What an honor and a gift it is to offer parents support and guidance during their preparation for birth and welcoming baby into the world.
Sarah Hoffman is a Birthing from Within Mentor, Childbirth Educator, Doula and Pregnancy Outreach Worker. She also supports families with children age 0-5yrs and facilitates parenting and childcare workshops.
