Thank you for registering for Birthing from Within classes! I'm so excited to get to know your growing family. Here are a few tips to help you prepare for our time together:

Our classes will meet twice a week from 7:30-9:30 pm. Please plan to arrive 5 minutes early for each class so we can start right on time. The classes will be held at 14214 Turtle Rock St. San Antonio TX 78232. Please come through the gate at the end of the driveway between the garage and carport and enter through the sunroom out back.

We'll be sitting in chairs on the floor, so wear comfy clothes that you can move freely in. You are welcome to bring a pillow, birth ball, or anything else that will help you feel comfortable. Be sure to bring a bottle of water, a pen and notebook, and any snacks you may need.

A little about me...

Nikki Shaheed San Antonio Childbirth Educator

I have been teaching Birthing from Within classes to San Antonio families since 2012. I've helped hundreds of parents prepare for the journey of birth and parenting. Each one of them has taught me as much as I have taught them. I am a Certified Birthing from Within Mentor and Doula. I serve as an Facilitator for the Birthing from Within® program, and Facilitator and Program Manager for Birth Story Listening® trainings, and I'm one of the three owners of Birthing from Within International. I also have three beautiful children of my own!

Each class series is as unique as the parents who attend our classes, and will be tailored to the needs of the individuals in class. Together we'll be delving into the physical, emotional, and spiritual transformation that takes place when one crosses the threshold into parenthood. New learning about yourself and birth are part of Birthing from Within classes. Our time together will help you understand birth in a whole new way.

Next steps...

I recommend saving to your e-mail contacts, which is the address that all class e-mails will be sent from. Be advised that sometimes the service I use to send class updates gets kicked out to the "promotions" folder for parents with gmail accounts. You will want to check that folder a week before class starts, and after each class during our series.

Let me know if you have any questions!

Take care,
Nikki Shaheed CCE(BFW) CD(DONA)

See you soon! - Nikki
