It is a strength that all women have, although we may not realize it is within us. Birth has a lot to do with courage, and it is good to feel ourselves being courageous – to open ourselves to birth and embrace this singular life experience.
We are here for you, every step of the way.
Childbirth Preparation Series
This is a three-week series of classes covering labor, delivery, relaxation, anesthesia, C-section, postpartum, breastfeeding and newborn care.
Express Childbirth Preparation Class
This is a one day class version of our Childbirth Preparation Class for busy parent, those who prefer weekend classes, or parents who simply need a refresher. This one day class covers all of the same content as our three-week series.
This class discusses medical interventions and anesthesia as you prepare for your Cesarean delivery, as well as post-operative care. Be prepared, be knowledgeable, and be ready to enjoy your baby as soon as he/she arrives! Note: This information is also covered in our Childbirth Preparation Series and Express classes.
The Art of Breastfeeding
In this class, a certified lactation counselor helps you prepare for and master the art of breastfeeding. Note: Breastfeeding is also covered in our Childbirth Preparation Series and Express Classes.

Learn infant, child and adult CPR from a certified instructor. It’s great for grandparents and care providers, too. Note: This class does not provide a BLS certification.
V.I.P. Sibling Class
For children ages 2-6 and their expectant parents. Includes a tour of the hospital, role play, safety topics, story time, and a snack. Families who are interested in a complimentary tour should call ahead to schedule 970.544.1130.
First Year and First Aid
This class presents fundamentals of parenting, from early bonding, developmental activities, parenting challenges, creating safe environments, and some basic first aid.
This class covers specific care of newborns in the first month, including baby basics such as: diapering, burping, swaddling, breastfeeding, car seats and immunizations. As we know, babies don’t come with instructions! Designed for parents, grandparents, and infant care providers. Note: This information is also covered in our Childbirth Preparation Series and Express classes. It does not include CPR or BLS.
Our team has put together a resource library of helpful handouts, which may be referred to during our Childbirth Education class(es). They are also available as references for families seeking more information about these important topics!
