Molly Murray - Birth, Life, and Business Doula
With so many choices, how do you decide which childbirth class is right for your family?
So, what makes Birthing From Within Different?
Simply put, Birthing From Within is a holistic childbirth and parenting preparation.
Birthing From Within Childbirth Classes offer mindfulness techniques, breathing exercises, birth art, personal growth, practical information such as the hormones & stages of labor, preparing for any birth, bringing individuals closer to themselves and their partner.
As a birth doula in Cincinnati since 2012, I know that a quality childbirth class and more importantly, practiced breath awareness and mindfulness make a huge difference in the birth experience for mother, partner and baby.
Taking an extensive childbirth class will give you the hands-on practice and knowledge about the entire birth process.
In Birthing From Within classes, parents practice mindfulness and self reflection to build an internal sense of resiliency and self compassion.
Birthing from Within Classes help connect mothers and partners to practical knowledge about birth, knowledge about how they themselves move through challenges, and how to move forward in birth, always doing the ''next best thing''
What is Birthing From Within's philosophy about pain?
Birthing From Within recognizes that although birth can sometimes be relatively pain-free or downright orgasmic, the vast majority of birth has some element of pain involved. Pain is virtually inevitable, and it can set women up for failure when they are taught to believe that they can avoid pain if they prepare well enough. Instead of teaching women to avoid pain in labor, Birthing From Within teaches women and their partners skills to cope with pain and ease suffering in labor. Roughly a third of our childbirth classes are devoted to learning pain-coping practices and developing a pain-coping mindset, and parents are encouraged to make these practices a way of life.
Birthing From Within mentors, such as myself, recognize that some women are quiet in birth, and others are loud. Some are still, and others in constant motion.
There is no “right way'' to birth!
When our culture holds a gold standard for birthing women as calm, relaxed, and gentle, women who get down and dirty to birth their babies can feel like they “didn’t do it right.”
Birthing From Within childbirth classes prepare women to give birth in their bodies, not in their minds. We have no gold standard for you to comply with; you can be as calm and still or loud and lively as you like!
''Molly's class was amazing, transformational and empowering. The Birthing From Within philosophy helped me and my husband explore and work through our fears, it deepened our relationship, and has provided wonderful memories. I truly feel that this class helped me prepare for birth and parenting emotionally, spiritually and physically!''
