Run by doulas Lanell Coultas and Marcela Billig, Conscious Birthing blends the Bradley and Birthing From Within techniques to create an informative and emotionally aware entrée into the world of labor, delivery, and beyond. The series of six classes is an earthy marriage of the cold, hard, technicolor facts of birthin' babies along with a touchy-feely, "get in touch with your feelings, you hollow reed" approach, plus some fairly imaginative pain-coping techniques. The overarching lesson of the class? Birth is a wonderful thing, but it can throw you some curveballs; Conscious Birthing equips expectant parents to handle Ma Nature’s surprises.
