Bare Basics of Childbirth

Boulder Community Health’s highest priority is to ensure we do everything within our control to maintain the safety of our patients, staff and the overall community. This requires us to take every opportunity to contain, control and reduce the impact of the COVID-19 virus. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), limiting public gatherings is a very effective tool for slowing the spread of COVID-19. We are following that CDC recommendation and cancelling all public gatherings intended for community members. This is effective immediately and includes all Childbirth and Parenting Classes, Tours and Support Groups.

We recognize that activities like community education programs and support groups are highly valued by community members and the BCH staff who provide those services. Accordingly, we have started a taskforce that is working to identify alternative ways of providing such activities. The Family Birth Center Plan is to offer E-Classes. You will be contacted with a link to register for the e-class or you may request a refund.

Thank you for supporting this effort to safeguard our community. I also encourage you to visit the homepage of our website, www.bch.org, for regular updates about COVID-19.

Bare Basic of Childbirth is a one-day intensive class that gives first-time parents (or parents who want a refresher) valuable tools and evidence-based information to prepare for your birth. Our instructor, Sutay Berman, a specially trained registered nurse and doula, will cover the normal physical and emotional experiences of late-stage pregnancy, labor, and birth including: possible medical interventions, cesarean birth, anesthesia and epidurals, natural options for coping with labor, and tips for caring for yourself and your newborn at home. A Family Birth Center tour is included.
We recommend that you also take Capable, Confident and Coping: Labor Techniques that Work. This class will help you practice labor techniques.
This is a long class, please bring a lunch and snacks as you wish. There are limited cafateria options available but there will be time to go to one of the many close by restaurants.
Fee: $100 per couple
Cancellations: A Full refund, minus a $5.00 processing fee per class, will be given for cancellation requests received 2 or more weeks before the start of a class series. If you cancel less than 14 days in advance, you will receive a 50% refund. To request a refund, email parentresources@bch.org.
