The Center for Integral Pregnancy and Childbirth (CIPC) offers comprehensive support for families throughout their entire journey from pregnancy to parenthood.
The experiences of pregnancy, childbirth and early parenthood, when approached in a conscious way, can act as catalysts for empowerment, increased self-care, well-being, and personal growth. Whether one's experiences in this transformation are challenging, are not what we expected, or are deeply fulfilling, this journey from pregnancy to parenthood is a golden opportunity for positive growth, deep healing, and remarkable self-transformation.
With a truly holistic perspective, The Center for Integral Pregnancy and Childbirth (CIPC) and the philosophy that it is based upon, brings together the best of all worlds--drawing from modern maternity care, traditional midwifery, evidence based science, integrative psychology & health, the noetic sciences, mindfulness, and the world’s many wisdom traditions.
Our integral approach bridges science, psychology and spirit, aiming to support greater well-being and positive growth for mothers, babies, families, and ultimately, the world at large.
To be pregnant is to be vitally alive. Soul and spirit are stretched - along with body - making pregnancy a time of transition, growth, and profound beginnings.”
