Birth is a loving, exciting, RAW, REAL and sometimes challenging transition in life.

It requires a surrender, an openness, a heart-felt realness that knowledge alone WILL interfere with.

This day is a different take on the traditional Childbirth classes. It emphasizes LOVE, ritual and hope and blends it with the stages and physiology of labor and birth, staying connected as a couple, support (who to have at the birth, who not to invite), and planning for postpartum. 

And more...

This is a day to fall in love with your partner (again), with Very Special Emphasis on partner preparation, acknowledging their vulnerability in this process and working to empower them and their emotional/spiritual role in this process. learn comfort measures for birth, confront fears in a safe environment, have a LOT of fun surrounded by other couples on their journey.

"I had read all "the books". Listened to the chime of advice from well-meaning women. Why didn't I feel "ready"? I realized after taking Katherine's class that I had been neglecting the spiritual side of the birth experience. Katherine provided the space to approach this major life change with the tender care and spiritual sensitivity it deserves. Her advice to give birth from my heart--rather than my head--re-framed my expectations of what a birth could look like. I left my time in this class feeling more connected to my partner, confident in my ability, and comforted to know I could love my birth."

- Jana, Mother of Samuel

"In an environment that is uplifted, relaxed, and intimate, Katherine guided us through an exploration of the birthing process. For someone completely new to this experience, her precision, humor, and balance between irreverent rawness and sacred grace were tremendously valuable, both to my personal experience as well as to how I could support and be present for my wife.
Katherine utilized basic anatomy instruction and blended this with her vast treasure trove of firsthand accounts to create an atmosphere that was informative, stress-free, and inspiring. As a member of an international tribe of warrior-midwives, her knowledge, gentle and loving touch transported me to a place where I actually believed it was possible I could be a birth-partner." 

- Pablo, Father of Amaia
