Along with providing you with online educational materials and doula packages, I am also a parent educator at Sky Ridge Medical Center in Lone Tree. I currently teach a class called, Prepared Childbirth Fast Track.
In this convenient, 2-day session held Friday evenings and all day Saturday, I will provide you with knowledge that will help prepare you for the choices you’ll make during your childbirth experience. This is a great way to supplement my online, Ready4Birth video series and attending will enable you to practice a variety of skills in a hands-on, group environment. The class will cover relaxation, effective breathing, massage, positioning, stress management and coping skills. Other subjects include the joys and challenges of pregnancy, labor and how it progresses, medical procedures, interventions, cesarean birth and pain management.
There is a cost of $75.00 per person or couple with a tour of the birth place included.

Express Class & New Parent Support Group
I’m always looking for new ways to support mamas and their spouses or partners during this incredible journey. Along with the 2-day intensive class offered through Sky Ridge, I also offer an Express Class and New Parent Support Group. Here are the details:
Express Class – $99: In a single day, over 6 hours, we will discuss the physiology of normal birth, feelings and emotions, breathing for labor, comfort measures, possible medical interventions, as well as have a conversation regarding cesareans and when they are necessary. Just bring snacks, a lunch, water, pillows and blankets.
For this class, there will be a minimum of 3 registered couples and a maximum of 7. Dates and location to be determined. At the conclusion of our session, I will also provide you with an offer code giving you FREE access to my educational videos and accompanying guide documents, including birth plan samples, a $29.99 value.
New Parent Support Group – $10: Share your highs and lows with other parents who are on the same journey. Moms, dads and partners will be able to swap stories, ask questions, laugh together and just take a moment to breathe. Babes in arms are welcome, and your low initial fee will give you access to unlimited meetings. I will be leading this group along with my husband, Michael Meurer, a local attorney specializing in estate planning and elder law. Together, we’ve been serving and supporting Colorado families for over 20 years! Beer and wine will be served.
If you would like to join us for either of these options, please get in touch to reserve your spot.
