Over the next few months I am offering FREE childbirth education workshops.
My name is Chantal Eder and I am a yoga instructor in NYC, specialising in Alignment, Back Care, and Pre & Postnatal wellness. I am a certified Postnatal fitness specialist and am currently being certified as a Childbirth Educator with Birthing From Within USA.
The certification process is 9 months long and during that time I am looking for families who would like to work with me on the material. Birthing From Within was founded by Midwife Pam England, and was one of the main guides I used during my pregnancy. Their philosophies centre around birth as a heroic journey, addressing not only birth data and techniques, but diving deeper into our inner process throughout pregnancy and birth.
Each workshop will be different and cover one portion of an overall child birth education class. You can choose to work with me through your entire pregnancy or dip your toes into the experience by booking a singular workshop.
Workshop topics and exercises may include: mindfulness, ceremony, birth art, interventions, cesarean awareness, pain coping awareness and techniques, postpartum preparation…and much more
“Birthing From Within-trained childbirth educators and doulas bring a depth of inquiry to parents in a variety of ways, including art, mindfulness, visualizations, storytelling, ritual, and ceremony. In all situations, our members are mentors, guiding parents through the unknown so that they can fully experience the transformation that birthing a baby brings. Birthing From Within mentors also bring current research into their work, building the bridges between ancient and modern knowing, myth and science, grit and grace.”

The workshops are completely free. Some materials may be required such as journals, bowls, paper etc…it would be helpful if you can provide these. Workshops can take place at your place of work, at home, or in a private studio space (at a cost of $35/hr). Workshops are intended for both the pregnant parent and birth partner but can be done alone if necessary.
