About Kriya Birth


Kriya Birth Education Program was developed to provide expectant parents a holistic program to prepare for birth in a way that honors their individual strengths and desires. Kriya Birth is committed to an honest and realistic approach to childbirth. We recognize several important things:

  • Birth is a profound experience in life that should be honored as such.

  • Our pasts shape our current beliefs about birth, therefore each person has different expectations of birth which should be explored. 

  • Each woman or partnership brings a unique set of coping skills and resources to their birth experience.  It is our intention to identify and develop those.

  • Childbirth Education is meant to work with couples to achieve an experience that empowers them, but should not be designed to achieve a specific outcome. 

  • Understanding the powerful connection between mind and body is an integral part of childbirth preparation.


The Kriya Birth Doula Certification is a unique program for those aspiring to work with families in their birthing time. This program provides evidence based information, coupled with the unique mind-body approach to birth that Kriya Birth Institute is committed to.
