Pam England has a unique talent for inventing thought-provoking methods to guide women during their childbearing years by synthesizing mythology, philosophy, art, archetypal psychology, rituals, and research. Her writing, teaching, and paintings are inspired by her Muse, as well as her experiences as a midwife and as a mother giving birth once by cesarean and then at home, and her work as a birth story-listener.
Pam is the author and founder of the original Birthing From Within (1999-2016) and is still
teaching these principles and processes in The Story You Bring To Birth and the Birth Story
School. During the past 40 years, she developed the principles and Process of Birth Story Medicine®. In addition, Pam founded The Birth Story School (2013) to teach aspiring birth story mentors and birth professionals how to lead this inspiring and healing process for others.
The popularity of her groundbreaking first book, Birthing From Within (1998) created a demand for a mentor and doula training and certification program which she founded in 1999. For many years Pam traveled across the United States and abroad teaching Birthing From Within philosophy and processes.
Formerly a certified nurse-midwife (trained at Frontier Nursing Service in Kentucky), Pam worked in hospitals, birth centers, and home birth settings for eighteen years. Her interest in preventing and resolving emotional birth trauma led her to earn a master’s degree in psychological counseling. Presently she is teaching courses on birth as a heroic journey, the healing power of telling Great Stories, and her Birth Story Medicine® process, which she is currently developing into a book. Pam lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Pam's sessions are a unique, insightful labyrinth of shared exploration for meaning. With the
the intention that by the end of every session, Something in your Story— what you are telling
yourself about yourself, what you feel about it, or what you believe about yourself—will change. . . bringing you another step closer to completing your story, your initiation, and coming “home” to peace of mind and self-acceptance.
