~*~ CLASS DESCRIPTIONS and PRICING ~*~
In this 3-week childbirth educational course which meets once a week, expectant moms and their partners will prepare for labor, learn what happens during labor physically and emotionally, and how to nourish and comfort yourselves during pregnancy, labor and postpartum recovery. We practice many different techniques for coping with labor, including labor positions, relaxation, guided imagery, theories of a calm birth, and various comfort measures. The class also includes discussion of Informed Choice, common interventions, pain relief options (pharmacological and non-pharmacological), and hospital birth, birth center birth and home birth.
This fun interactive childbirth education series will prepare expectant parents for birth. Beyond typical hospital procedures and policies, this evidence-based, CAPPA certified class will give you the tools to manage labor and all that comes with it to create the best possible birth experience for your family. Breastfeeding will "briefly" be discussed, but taking a class focused on this specific topic is encouraged.
Expectant mothers should attend with their partners. Handouts and a workbook are included. Class size is limited to ensure all students leave feeling prepared for this important life event!
Sweet Beginnings has crafted and designed the only 3 week childbirth series in Denver and the surrounding area and we are so proud that over the years we have seen this class grow and know that with our hard work and dedication, your family gains the knowledge, education and empowerment to make informed decisions about your little ones upcoming arrival.

Birth by Hypnosis
This is not your average "hypnobirthing" class. It blends the best techniques & traditions together to provide a comprehensive hypno-childbirth class. Hypnosis, used during labor & birth, has proven to create a more calm, relaxed, empowered and present birthing experience!
If your goal is a more natural & joyful birth experience this class is for you.
Benefits of using Birth by Hypnosis include:
- Increased comfort and awareness during the labor & birth process
- More effective and easy communication during birth
*If you have taken or are in the process of taking our Mindful Childbirth Course or Express Class, this would be a great compliment to "add on" for anyone interested in the "Hypno" experience.
