Childbirth Education Classes
Classes typically run in a 10 to 12-week series. Starting January 1st, 2011 all Colorado Springs teachers will be charging $295 / couple / series. Teachers charge based on the “going rate” for other comparable methods and also other Brio Birth teachers in the surrounding areas. Teachers are here to help one another, not compete with one another.
What is Brio Birth?
Brio Birth Childbirth classes offer the perfect mix of time-honored traditions and comprehensive curriculum that includes cutting edge research to empower 21st century moms to give birth with confidence. Brio Birth is made up of a team of top childbirth educators and birth professionals.
Brio Birth ensures that mothers and their birth partners are well educated and well prepared for labor and birth. Your classes will teach you how to stay healthy throughout your pregnancy and to prepare your body for the big day. You and your birth partner will learn how to work as a team to help you cope with the sensations of labor. You will learn about the natural process and why it is healthiest for most mothers and babies. At the same time, you will also be well educated about common medications and procedures so that you can make informed choices.
You will be led by your Brio Birth Educator through an intensive labor rehearsal so that you will develop your own strategies for labor. Because you can never know for sure how labor will go, you will be prepared for long labor, short labor, and the many variations that can occur along the way. It is the goal of the Brio Birth educator for you to be well equipped for whatever course your labor may take.
Since birth is only the beginning, you will learn newborn care and breastfeeding techniques. Classes will teach you what to expect during the weeks and months after birth for both you and your baby. Your Brio Birth Educator is a highly trained professional who will be available to answer your questions, address your concerns, and calm your fears about labor, birth and motherhood.
The vision here at Brio Birth is to touch the lives of one million mothers, babies, and their families each year. Our primary mission is to support the birthing family. By creating a series of resources delivered by well-trained educators and via online education, we will become the most trusted, researched, and comprehensive source for expectant mothers, their families, and birth teams.
Why Brio? What does it mean and how does it fit with what we do? Brio is most often connected to the Italian use and origin meaning liveliness or vigor. What many do not know is that it can be traced back further to the Latin inspired Celtic meaning power, strength, honor, dignity, and many more adjectives along these same lines. Interestingly we can trace the lineage of Brio back even further to the Greek word ἔμβρυον, meaning embrion or embryo in English, it is composed of en: inside and brio: sprout or offspring an interesting meaning to be sure. Today it is used in music as a descriptive term, to play con brio or to play with vigor and passion.
When looking for a way to describe how we wanted to live, work, teach and learn this background and meaning not only made sense but gave voice and a name to how we feel. We want to live with Brio!
