Congratulations on your pregnancy!  What an exciting time in your lives.  I hope you find the information on this website helpful in your journey of bringing a healthy and happy child into this world. 


A Little Bit About Me:


I live in Auburn, Indiana and have been married for sixteen years to my high school sweetheart, Lee Nagel.  I stay at home and take care of my three wonderful children, Krue(11), Kiefer(9), and Kai(6).  I truly enjoy teaching Bradley Method classes one night a week and getting to know the couples in my classes.  


Lee and I took Bradley Method classes when I was pregnant with our first son.  We absolutely loved it and we both felt confident and in control when I went into labor.  The birth of all three of our children were amazing and empowering experiences and I wanted to share this with other people by becoming a Bradley instructor myself.  This is my ninth year of instructing.


The Bradley Method® is a way of educating yourself and your husband/coach on what to expect during pregnancy, labor, delivery, and postpartum.  It gives you a huge tool bag to work out of and helps you make informed choices for yourself and your child.


The Bradley Method® classes:

-are small enough for individual attention.

-include 12 units of instruction with review sessions until birth.

-teach both of you relaxation, physiology, nutrition, and parenting skills.

-advises you on how to be an intelligent, informed, consumer of obstetric services.


Couples usually begin the classes in the fifth or beginning of the sixth month of pregnancy.  The earlier you start, the better prepared you’ll be physically, emotionally, and mentally.


We focus on teaching:

-Natural childbirth

-Active participation by the coach

-Excellent nutrition

-Avoidance of drugs

-Early training

-Natural breathing and relaxation techniques

-Tuning in and working with your body

-Immediate and continuous contact with your new baby

-Breastfeeding beginning at birth

-Positive communications

-Informed parents sharing in the making of responsible decisions

-Parents prepared for unexpected situations (emergency childbirth or c-sections)
