Joyful Birth

Birthing a baby is both a science and an art.  It is a science when we understand how the body actually works in the miracle of pregnancy, it is an art when a woman understands how her spirit and inner wisdom brings forth and births new life.

What is Joyful Birth?

Joyful Birthing is understanding how your wisdom and ability to trust can empower a woman to birth with intention and improve her spirit and health. Beyond a “how to” education for childbirth, Joyful Birthing empowers a woman to expand her mind, her body and her spirit.  Each topic of childbirth and the important issues that all women want to cover is woven with ancient wisdom that increases a woman’s ability to trust her body’s natural process.

Using metaphors, ancient wisdom, well studied concepts along with her medical knowledge and experience, Donna helps women to birth consciously.  Each topic is addressed from the physiological, psychological and spiritual perspective.

The Art of Joyful Birthing is designed to help you birth your baby and more importantly, to birth yourself. It is designed to help a woman experience her spirit fully in the birth. A woman taps into her true self and human values that bring truth, love, peace and non-invasive into the birthing experience.

In a comfy, home-setting, our Joyful Birth classes are relaxing and personal. It is divided into 3 parts – averaging about 3.5 hours each class and on three different days. Learning techniques through teaching modules, live video, discussion, role play, art and visioning the ideal birth exercises. Learn how to dance into Motherhood with our JOYFUL birthing class!
