About Birthing Wisdom

Birthing Wisdom classes celebrate and empower all women. Whether you choose to birth in a hospital, free standing birth center, home birth or if you desire to give birth with or without medical intervention, these classes will help you understand the choices that are best for you and your unborn baby. Birthing Wisdom's goals are to allow a mother and her family experience an individualized birth that is experienced as a joyous labor of life.

Birthing Wisdom was founded by Pauline White-Nardella, RN, MPA

I began teaching families in 1982 when I earned a B.S. degree in Nursing and began working in the field of Maternal Child Health & Pediatrics. I have three beautiful healthy children all born naturally using these techniques. I have been teaching Natural Childbirth classes since 1991 and dual certified in HypnoBirthing®-The Mongan Method in 2001. These two childbirth education options offer an expectant family a complete, comprehensive childbirth and early parenting educational program.

My mantra is Knowledge is Power! Understanding the beauty of the human body, trusting it and working with your body to create a healthy baby and a safe birth is empowering for all women.

I actively lecture, teach and consult throughout the tri-state area at conferences, colleges, hospitals, health fairs and parenting centers. I am also a regional speaker for the March of Dimes. Please contact me at for a speaking engagement.
