Founded in April, 2009, BirthSmart™ is a community based volunteer organization founded on the belief that birth is a normal, healthy family event. BirthSmart™ provides information related to goods, services and resources available in the Grand Valley of Colorado, helping women and their families achieve empowered pregnancy, birth, postpartum and breastfeeding experiences through evidenced-based education.
You'll find everything from tips on choosing a care provider to resources for designing your empowered birth. It is not about natural birth; it's not about medicated birth; it is about your empowered birth. read more>>>
Birth Story Circle
Join host and psychologist Gen Morris and other caring BirthSmart folks as we gather to laugh, cry, and share birth stories. This special event is open to all Grand Valley women (sorry, gentlemen) aged 15 and up, whether you have given birth or are anticipating it someday. Telling birth stories goes back to ancient times as veteran mothers sought to prepare mothers-to-be for giving birth.
