Childbirth

www.BirthingtheFuture.com
Suzanne Arms’ website that says it all for me.

www.BirthingFromWithin.com
Women and families can use childbirth classes to discover their beliefs about birth, to express their fears and concerns, and to choose the perfect environment to be able to open safely and let the baby come out. Women already have the knowledge in their bodies to birth. When they pick the best environment and a practitioner that they trust, their body’s wisdom can do the rest. You can find a childbirth educator near you from this website, which also features a message board for parents.

Craniosacral Therapy

The Upledger Institute has pioneered this gentle therapy, and offers workshops everywhere in the world. This site has information about finding therapists in your location, as well as resources (videos, books, and other products) and a marvelous smorgasbord of other therapies (such as Lymphatic Drainage, Zero-Balancing, and animal therapies).
