Winter Class Schedule

Birthing From Within

5 week series at Belly Bliss in Cherry Creek

January 23- February 20th 6:30 -9:30 pm

Birthing from Within® classes are “gourmet” childbirth preparation classes based off of the landmark book by the same name. They balance practical, useful information with introspective processes and discussions to help you discover what you need to know to give birth.

Highlights of What Classes Cover: – Creating a supportive environment in the hospital or home. – Practicing proven pain-coping techniques. – Exploring your feelings, fears and hopes for birth. – Labor positions and comfort measures. – What labor might look and feel like. – Asking questions and making informed decisions. – Celebrating your journey as parents. Every couple will get something different out of their Birthing From Within classes. You may not know exactly what it is that you’re seeking and that’s okay – in fact, that’s what makes Birthing From Within classes remarkably different. There is fluidity based on the needs of each individual and class, coupled with practical information and pain-coping techniques. I support YOU and your journey and am not tied to any specific outcome. There is no wrong or right way to birth, only the way yours unfolds. After Birthing From Within Classes: – Moms walk away with more confidence that they can handle whatever their birth may bring. They are more hopeful and strong. – Dads or partners come away with a clear understanding of what labor looks like and lots of ideas of what they can do to help the birthing mother and how to interact with hospital staff. They seem less worried and much more sure of themselves. – Couples deepen their connection, forming a strong team that will work really well in labor. They have lots of fun, too, and no-one wants to leave at the end! – Most couples walk away with wonderful new friends. Pre-registation is required. $220 per couple. follow this link to register
