All women are born with the knowledge about how to give birth. Birth is instinctive and what is instinctive doesn’t need to be taught. Rather, we help women to have more trust and faith in their own ability to give birth. This is a unique and innovative approach that is empowering and transforming in nature which decreases their fear and increases their confidence to birth.
Do you need more confidence to give birth? Our Human Values approach to Childbirth Preparation is unique and offers an emotional and academic preparation for birth. Come learn how to position your body to make it easier for your baby to pass through your pelvis to be born. Come and believe that your body already knows how to birth your baby. Follow BirthWorks philosophies for a safe, positive, birthing experience.
BIRTH IS INSTINCTIVE
Join our Childbirth Educator Program and receive a comprehensive and premium training that integrates mind, body, and spirit in a Human Values approach to Childbirth Preparation. We offer an emotional and academic preparation for birth. Our topics include Pelvic Bodywork, Primal Health, Human Values, and grieving/ healing all of which help birthing parents to make safer choices in pregnancy and birth.
Birth has the potential to become a peak experience in a woman’s life. Doulas offer continuous support to women in labor. With their energy of love, a Doula knows how to purify the atmosphere, helping women in labor feel safe so they can let go and give birth. Putting Human Values, Primal Health Concepts, and Optimal Pelvic/Fetal Positioning into practice helps women to birth instinctively.
NEW “ACED” Combo (Accelerated Childbirth Educator Doula Program)
Would you like to become a Childbirth Educator and Doula in one Certification Program? Then our ACED Certification Program is for you! Save time and money by attending one four-day combo workshop valid as a prerequisite towards both programs. Birthing parents in your classes may be your new Doula clients! Help spread the BirthWorks philosophy that Birth is Instinctive and help transform lives, increasing confidence and decreasing fear in birth. Fee includes tuition for both programs plus the four-day workshop.
Postpartum Doula Program
A new mother is at home feeling overwhelmed with her new responsibilities of mothering one or more children. Perhaps she has no extended family around and her husband/partner is traveling for work. You can be the one who supports her so she can get rest, recover from the birth, and make the early weeks of parenting a positive experience. Join our completely online at-distance Postpartum Doula Program. No workshop required. Comprehensive training is based on the popular BirthWorks Philosophies of Human Values. Set your own hours and serve women and their families. They will remember you for years to come.
Birth Is Instinctive
We believe that the knowledge about how to give birth is born within every woman. Therefore, birth is instinctive and what is instinctive doesn’t need to be taught. We help women to have more trust and faith in their own body knowledge that already knows how to give birth. This is a unique approach that is empowering and transforming in nature.
BirthWorks Is A Process
We believe that each woman finds her own way through birth and labors in her own unique way. Our childbirth classes and doula services honor each woman’s wholeness and individuality and encourage integration of the mind, body, and spirit through the human values of truth, right action, peace, love, and nonviolence. When put into practice these result in less fear and more self-confidence to give birth.
BirthWorks Is Comprehensive
We teach pelvic bodywork and optimal pelvic positioning to help facilitate movement of the baby through the pelvis, and help women grieve and heal from birth related losses. In primal health we recognize that early experiences of the baby impact his health as an adult. We offer an experiential design that is both an academic and emotional preparation for birth through interactive discussion, music, and art.
Birth is instinctive. It makes so much sense now that I think about it. I wish I had heard this before I gave birth. – FL
After my cesarean, I didn’t know I could hold my baby in the recovery room. I didn’t know how important mother baby skin-to-skin contact is at the time of birth for my baby’s brain. – NY
If only I’d known the ways to quiet my thinking brain so my primal brain could be fully accessed for birth. – TX
