A great opportunity for new parents or expectant parents to meet and greet with birth professionals in Colorado Springs. Come and get information, or just to browse. This will be held this coming Saturday, December 6 at the Babies R Us just South of the Citadel Mall at Academy Blvd. and East Platte Ave. The event will take place from 12:00 Noon to 3:00 pm. There will be product giveaways! Should be a beautiful Saturday afternoon in the Springs. See you there.
Pregnant couples: Want something more in-depth and personalized than the hospital classes? Can't pay for it all at once? I am offering a payment plan option: Pay just $22 each week. http://www.birthpeptalk.com/register-for-classes.html
I am currently registering couples due between February 10 and March 3.
Temporarily suspending my travel and all classes in Castle Rock temporarily on hold

A BIG thanks to all who came out to the annual Healthy Pregnancy Fair at the Citadel Mall this past weekend. Thanks to those who signed up for my newsletter. What a joy to gather so many cool people in one place at once! Congratulations to Sabrina S and Jennifer G who are the winning entries for our prize drawing! They won a Miracle Blanket and "The Happiest Baby on the Block." The fair was sponsored by the Colorado Springs BirthNetwork.

~~UPDATE: We will have childcare available for this event~~
On Sunday, September 1 at 4:00 PM, we'll be holding a screening of the film, "Freedom For Birth."
We'll be welcoming adults to come and view the film, which is a video from the 'One World Birth' organization about birth as a human rights issue. The film is one hour long and features information about the suppression of midwifery care, especially the story of Agnes Gereb.
We'll have a sheet with some resources on how you can take action after we watch the film.
Get excited for the rally! The Rally for Improving Birth will be taking place in cities all around the world. We will be attending the event in Syracuse on Monday, Sept. 2. While this film event is not affiliated with the improving birth rally, we will have a time for making posters for those who will be attending on Monday.
I'm going to post soon about whether children will be welcome (I need to see if we will be able to have childcare available). Breastfed babies may attend, but we ask that you please step out if they become fussy.
There is no charge for this event. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or message our facebook page at www.facebook.com/birthpeptalk
Light refreshments will be provided.
