In late 2009 I attended a Birthing From Within training in Austin. I was just dipping my toes into the birth world and loved everything I read in Pam England’s book, Birthing From Within and wanted to dig deeper into birth preparation using this method. I was interested in learning the process of birth as a heroes journey, labyrinths, storytelling and pain coping techniques. When my youngest kiddo came along a couple years later I spent time focused on meeting his needs and knitting our new family of 4 together. A year ago I started a mentorship program with Birthing From Within to finish my certification and am proud to say I’m a Certified Birthing From Within mentor!
