It is a great honor for me to support women and their families through the great journey of pregnancy to parenthood. Childbirth is a powerful, transformative experience that has the potential to impact one’s life forever.
~Jo Lukawitski, Birth Mentor and Doula
Our classes are dynamic, engaging and lively!
Birthing From Within classes are unique; we help parents prepare for childbirth through: storytelling, lively discussions, visualizations, art, pain coping practices with ice, role play, yoga.
I am currently taking a break from offering private sessions and group sessions. If you are looking for doula support, please contact me for more information.
Parents enrolled in a Birthing From Within Prenatal class will receive a free postpartum visit from me as well as a prenatal Belly Mapping session. This is a fun way to bond with your baby, discover it’s position, and learn how that might influence your labor.
If you are past 36 weeks and would like a belly mapping session, connect with me. Cost: Sliding scale fee for a 30 min. session $35-$55.
In your Birthing prenatal classes you will learn how to:
- build confidence in yourself and your partner
- make use of valuable pain coping practices
- provide comfort to the laboring mother
- protect your birth space
- ask questions and make decisions in labor
- fulfill the needs of your growing baby using a sound diet
- recover and plan post-partum
- give birth from within during a Cesarean, while using pain medication, or with medical support
Your Birthing classes will be:
- a balance of practical, useful information and creative, experiential exercises
- personalized to your needs and interests
- not narrowly focused on a particular type of birth
- stimulating, lively discussions and interesting exercises
- learning, not just about birth, but also about yourselves!
