Details:

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.

This is a long class, there will be an hour break for lunch. The cafeteria is closed to the public but you are welcome to bring a lunch and eat on the patio or there are many restaurants nearby. 

Fee: $80 per couple

This is an In-Person Class.  All adults, regardless of vaccination status, will need to be masked, and non-household groups need to be spaced at least 6 feet apart. Symptom screening and temperature checks will occur and we encourage anyone coming for an in-person class to get vaccinated. Walk-in appointments are available on Tuesday's at the vaccine clinic on the 2nd floor of Della Cava Medical Pavilion (across from BCH Foothills Hospital).

Cancellations: If you cancel your registration prior to 5 business days before class begins, your registration fee will be refunded or transferred to another class. No refunds or transfers will be given after this time.

Need to reschedule or have questions? Send an email parentresources@bch.org or call 303-415-7244.

There are rare instances we may have to cancel a class due to low enrollment or an emergency. A full refund will be given or you will be transferred into the next class. Every effort will be made to make up the class.

In the event of bad weather, such as a snowstorm, an email will be sent our notifying you regarding the cancellation.
