I just finished Birthing from Within classes with Christine Fischer-Rothman in Jamaica Plain, and I wanted to spread the word because we loved it so much. During our first pregnancy we took a different natural childbirth class and while we learned a lot about physiology, hospital practices, and nutrition, we felt unprepared emotionally. BFW focuses a lot on internal rather than external factors, and the pain coping techniques are really well taught and practiced. My favorite part of the class was how much time and space Christine leaves for open discussion. We learned a lot from ourselves, about each other, and from the others in the class too. I highly recommend it!
