Please note: We intend to continue to run our upcoming workshops IN-PERSON (provided restriction are still lifted). We understand comfort levels vary with these changes and we will create distance between couples and encourage anyone who wants to wear a mask to do so. We also sanitize the space frequently with wipes/spray.

Here's what Barbara had to say...
My husband and I went into the birth preparation course not knowing what to expect (we imagined it would be something like what you see in the movies and we were a little nervous going into it). But it was SO MUCH BETTER! I loved how sweet and supportive Kayla and Erin were. The day went by so fast! They went over so many great exercises to help us understand what 'real labour' may be like. They showed us lots of great pain management practices, and positions to help during labour, on top of a lot of other great topics they covered. My husband was hesitant to attend at first, but we both left feeling EMPOWERED, confident and ready to take on what lies ahead!! Kayla and Erin are very helpful in answering any questions, and they make everyone feel welcome! We both highly recommend this course to anyone! Thanks ladies!
The Birthing from Within workshop was an incredible experience! I had read the book "Birthing From Within" and knew that this was the prenatal class for me, but what I didn't know was how much I would learn and how comfortable I'd feel participating as a part of such a wonderful group! It was informative, intimate, REAL, and very much an integral part of my journey toward birth and motherhood thus far. I can't recommend the workshop enough. I look forward to participating in more Transition Doula Collective events in the future. Thank you so much to Kayla and Erin and the other parents in our group for a truly integrative and warm experience.
My husband and I attended Erin and Kayla's prenatal class last weekend. It was very informative and real! We learned so much that a lot of prenatal classes do not even touch on, such as preparing for the event of a cesarean birth. They were able to answer all of our questions and went out of their way to send out additional information on topics of interest to our class.
I was very nervous for labour prior to this class. I now feel confident and excited knowing different coping techniques and positions for me and my husband!

What makes us different from other prenatal classes?
This isn't your average prenatal class! Our workshop is a great alternative to the traditional classes, offering an interactive, connective, and hands-on experience while providing you with everything you need to know. It's a full day - we call it a "one day intensive" for a reason!
Through compassionate and honest preparation, we will guide you through everything you need to know and introduce practices & exercises to cope with the intensity of labour - for both the birthing person and the birth partner!
Experience an intimate, comfortable, and safe group space to discover what it means to "birth from within."
Giving birth, supporting your partner in birth and becoming a parent is a big deal! Join our upcoming group workshop and see why our class is different.
