Birthing from Within - Dallas

Amanda offers Birthing From Within Childbirth Classes, encompassing pregnancy, birth, lactation and postpartum. 

~ Childbirth & Postpartum Class ~

 Welcome to Birthing From Within childbirth education. Our classes go beyond basic, practical information about pregnancy, labor, and the postpartum return.  This is a 2 day class where we will take the journey of YOU as the expert in preparing for birth and early parenthood, honoring this season of your life and these rites of passage.  

This is an INTENSIVE CLASS, that means we are still getting 11 to 13 hours of actual class time over the course of our time together, just like a 4 or 6 week class that meets a couple hours each time. 


Who this class is for:

  • First time moms and partners.

  • If you had a difficult or traumatic labor & birth experience in the past.

  • If you are looking to deepen your self-awareness for THIS pregnancy through postpartum time. Each pregnancy & birth journey is unique. Let us honor them as so.

  • If you are looking to strengthen your mental, physical, emotional & spiritual preparedness for your birth & early parenthood journey.

What to expect:

Childbirth preparation happens at every level from mental, emotional and physical to spiritual. The beauty of taking a Birthing From Within class with Amanda as your mentor is her ability to serve the individual and group in unique ways. Pulling from a wide body of knowledge and information she can create a one of a kind class and experience to fit each person/group. 

Of course, there are specific aspects you can count on learning. These are some of the fundamentals that create a strong foundation for you to build on.


~ coping/pain coping + comfort techniques

~ anatomy/physiology of labor & birth

~ stages of labor + what birth can look like

~ the father/partner’s role

~ the importance of creating a safe environment

~ the postpartum time & early days of parenting

~ lactation/breastfeeding

~ nutrition for all stages

We use mindful awareness, breathing techniques, open discussions, story and art in various ways to help you understand yourself and your personal journey in a different and exciting way.

This is very unique experience for each individual. I highly encourage you to bring your primary support person, whether it is your husband, partner, doula, mom, dad, sibling or friend.

This ancient map - the map of the Birth Warrior - is not a simplistic road map to achieving a perfect birth or any other specific outcome. Instead, it guides you across countless inner thresholds, over unforeseen hurdles, beyond your edge, and into the unknown and uncharted territory. This map shows you ways to keep going - and to find your way ‘home’ again.
