Kansas City childbirth classes that focus on what YOU want to know, not what someone else “thinks” you need to know!
Tara has been facilitating Birthing From Within® childbirth classes in the Kansas City area since 2012. Private and group classes are geared towards self-discovery, instead of just assimilating obstetric information. Our sessions together are used in combination with online and provider resources, giving you the most holistic preparation for the childbearing year from pre-conception to postpartum.
Please take a look at the 2017 schedule for upcoming classes and more information.
