Birthing From Within
**Due to COVID-19 all classes held virtually via Zoom**
Our Birthing from Within classes are engaging, interactive, creative classes that engage the mind, body, and heart to prepare you for a confident, mindful, loving birth. In addition to giving you the evidence-based information you need to navigate birth in modern society, these Birthing From Within classes will help you develop the tools you need to find your own unique path through the initiation of giving birth.
Each class includes: a different mindfulness pain coping technique; an informational module on pregnancy and birth; a multi-sensory activity to integrate and embody the lessons; and a ceremonial closing.
"Pam made me feel empowered, in-the-know, and at ease even when the many changes of birth came into play!
And when I didn’t feel at ease, she had given us tools to deal with that too!” ~ Victoria W.

Meet Your Educator
I’m Pamela Adams. I’m a Birthing from Within trained birth mentor and doula. I’m also an ancestral healer who’s passionate about decolonizing birth through community care and ritual.
I believe birth is a sacred rite of passage and should be honored as such. In caring for parents, I seek to help parents connect with their own inner knowing so they can walk with confidence into the initiation of parenthood.
I offer mentoring, education, and healing from the preconception phase all the way to the postpartum phase. I would be honored to walk with you on this journey.
