Birthing from Within

Birthing from Within is a creative and innovative approach to preparing for birth developed by midwife Pam England. It begins by asking key questions such as: What is it that YOU need to know to give birth?, How will you cope with the intensity and unknown of birth and parenting?, How are you preparing to give and receive support in labor and beyond?
