Childbirth Education

It takes strength to listen to and trust our bodies, to welcome labor, to give ourselves over to the task of birth. It is a strength that all women have, although we may not realize it is within us. Birth has a lot to do with courage, and it is good to feel ourselves being courageous – to open ourselves to birth and embrace this singular life experience.
