Childbirth Education:

12-hour Birthing From Within™ childbirth series helps expectant parents prepare for birth in strength and awareness, rather than to achieve a specific outcome. Parents learn what the human body is physiologically capable of, the psychology of how to enable that capability, and how they can be fully present without fear clouding their experience or preventing them from birthing in empowerment.

THIS SERIES INCLUDES:

  • Dozens of emotional and physical coping tools to avoid suffering

  • The stages of labor

  • How to process and face the fear of labor and birth

  • Ways for partners/birth attendants to provide emotional and physical support

  • Movement and positioning to ease pain and promote labor progress

  • Medical procedures: What? When? How? Why/why not?

  • The wise and compassionate use of pain medication

  • How to communicate effectively with care providers

Each series is scheduled over 4 weeknights from 6:30 - 9:30 pm.

COST FOR THIS SERIES IS $300.

Private sessions are available by request for people whose schedules prevent them from registering for a scheduled group class.

ALL CLASSES ARE CURRENTLY VIRTUAL VIA ZOOM, UNTIL IT IS CONSIDERED SAFE TO GATHER INDOORS IN SMALL GROUPS PER CDC GUIDELINES.

A doula is not a replacement for a childbirth education class. We highly recommend learning about birth in order to help better prepare you. There are many different types of birth classes and several of our doulas are childbirth educations. One of the education courses we recommend is Baby Steps

"Baby Steps was founded with the knowledge that birthing persons are individuals, and what is right for one may not be right for another. It is our mission to provide evidence-based information to all families regarding pregnancy, birth, and parenting. We do not advocate any particular choice, only that parents be given all of the information they need to decide what is right for themselves."

Colleen is a postpartum doula, educator, and retired birth doula. Colleen has worked in the Atlanta birth community for over a decade. She uses knowledge and compassion to guide her classes. She offer's several courses to help growing families better prepare for their birth and postpartum period.
