Testimonials from previous students:
We are so thankful for all the information and support that Cierra gave us. Class was fun and extremely informational. I truly feel that Cierra cared about each couple's unique situation! I will definitely recommend Cierra's class and the Bradley Method to all of my expecting friends! 8/5/11 2:50PM
"Cierra's Bradley Method class teaches how to have a healthy pregnancy and a natural, unmedicated childbirth in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. With so much information available on these topics, it's helpful to have a single, reliable source available each week to sort it all out."
"I was very interested in The Bradley Method® and am very glad a co-worker referred me to Cierra. She allowed me to attend part of the course and the classes I attended have given me helpful information that I've used to prepare for a natural childbirth in a way I couldn't have done on my own. Cierra was a great resource and always willing to answer questions and I enjoyed knowing that she was there as part of my support system."
"Cierra was a great instructor. She has made me and my husband feel confident in our choice to use The Bradley Method®. She is very thorough and knowledgeable. Her class was interesting and fun."
"This experience brought us closer together as a couple and created a better understanding and greater involvement into our child's growth."
