Name: Abbie Spreier Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Website: www.CastleRockBirth.com My name is Abbie Spreier. I am married and have two daughters. I graduated from Texas A&M in 2002 and from the University of Oklahoma with a law degree in 2005. I practiced family and criminal law until the birth of my first baby. Since I have always been passionate about natural childbirth, I chose to give birth to both girls at home with a midwife and a doula. After my first birth, I certified as a doula and then I became a Certified Professional Midwife (CPM) and Licensed Midwife (LM) in Texas in 2012. My family moved to Castle Rock, Colorado in July 2014. I chose to certify as a Birth Boot Camp Instructor because I had such a great experience as a care provider with clients who took Birth Boot Camp classes. I am excited to be a part of the Castle Rock and Denver birthing community!

Name: Amanda Przymus Email: email@example.com Website: www.BirthFinity.com Namaste & Blessings! My husband and I were married in 2007 at Garden of the Gods state park in Colorado. In 2009, our first son, Ayden, who was a planned homebirth, arrived. Unfortunately, with the occurrence of a long labor and several minor complications arising, he was born at the hospital. In 2012, our second son, Ashtyn, was born at home after a very short and satisfying labor with a midwife, montrice, and doula in attendance. I feel blessed to have experienced both sides of the birth coin. The dramatically different births of my sons completely changed the direction I wanted my life to take and fortified my commitment to become a part of the natural birth community. My journey led me to Birth Boot Camp and I became an instructor in July 2013 and a Doula in July 2015. I hold a Bachelor’s of Arts degree from the University of Colorado focused on women’s studies, sociology, and theology. I hope to add additional natural birth services soon. My services are perfect for anyone seeking a more modern approach to organic, natural childbirth, and parenting. I would love and be honored to help empower, embrace and enhance your family’s individual birth journey. I hope you leave my services feeling fulfilled Mind, Body and Spirit!
City: Durango and Farmington, NM Name: Celeste Kalcich Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Website: www.class.birthbootcamp.com/celestekalcich As a natural birth, breastfeeding, and baby wearing enthusiast since 2009, I am thrilled to offer Birth Boot Camp classes in the Four Corners area! I underwent many unnecessary interventions during my first birth in 2008 at my local hospital and vowed to never give birth uninformed again. After reading every possible book, research paper, and article about birth I could, I became passionate about birth and child-rearing the way nature intended. My next child, a son, was born in the comfort of my own home in 2010, as well as my third child, a daughter, again in February of 2013. Since my empowering second birth, being an advocate for childbearing women has become one of my biggest passions. I ardently believe that women are endowed with the ability to birth and nurture their children when they have adequate support and information - all of which can be provided through Birth Boot Camp classes!
City: Denver Name: Brittany Harrer Email: email@example.com Website: www.auroradoula.com I am so excited to announce that I'm the first certified Birth Boot Camp Instructor in the Denver metropolitan area and am looking forward to sharing my experience and knowledge with others interested in pursuing natural birth. My husband and I have been married for six years. We have a beautiful two year old daughter who was born naturally in the hospital with a midwife. I grew up in the Chicago area but I have lived in many parts of the country from my time as a military wife. Our family is happy to now call Denver our permanent home. I am fortunate to have an awesome support system that is very encouraging of my passion for empowering women to take control of their birth story. I am currently working on my Birth Doula certification.
City: Grand Junction Name: Angela Bunnell Email: firstname.lastname@example.org I am the mother of four beautiful children who were born at various locations from hospital to home. I am excited to support couples wherever they desire to birth. I believe education is the means to empower couples with the ability to make the best birth choices for their situation. I am thrilled to support others on their passage to parenthood as so many have supported me. Please visit my website for details on my teaching schedule.
City: Greeley Name: Julie Pakiser Email: email@example.com Born and raised in Colorado, I love getting outside and enjoying all that our state has to offer. I have three amazing children who were all delivered naturally; I had my son at the hospital and my two daughters at home. I loved being pregnant and knowing that I could trust my body to birth my babies just as it was designed to do. After my son was born, I began looking into natural birth because I had received so many comments on how amazing it was that such a young mom had given birth naturally. It had never occurred to me how much of a feat some thought this to be. I love sharing my knowledge with other mamas (and dads, too) as they go through this amazing part of their lives and plan the birth experience they desire. This is what led me to becoming a Birth Boot Camp Instructor. I am currently in school with hopes of eventually practicing somewhere within labor & delivery, exactly where I haven't yet decided. I believe that every woman deserves to have the birth experience she desires and I look forward to educating couples on how to do that. Can't wait to see you in class!
City: Loveland Name: Stephanie Spangler Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Website: www.SpecialBlessing.org Wow... What a journey! My family and I are from Illinois and almost two years ago moved to the lovely state of Colorado. We live in the Northern Colorado area and love the wonderful view God has placed in our backyard. My husband and I have been married for seven years. We have two lovely blessings....Gaige who is five years old; all boy full of love and energy! Sweet Miss Timberlyn Mae who is two in a half (going on 16); full of orneriness and cuteness! We will see what else God has in store for us, as of right now our cup is full! We are lovers of the outdoors and adventures, we enjoy hikes and family time. I'm a sign language interpreter and a Birth Boot Camp Instructor! These are things I do but I am first a child of God, second a wife and third a mother. I love all the jobs and talents I have been given. I'm so thankful to be educating families about natural childbirth! After having two babies one cesarean and the other VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean), I have had two very different experiences that have changed the way I look at pregnancy, labor, and delivery. I want other couples to be informed and prepared for the best Blessing in this world...a precious life and addition to families. I hope you will join me in preparing your family for a Special Blessing! I will be teaching classes in Loveland, Colorado. I am hoping to cover the Northern Colorado area and get the word out about how great and informative Birth Boot Camp is.
