Congratulations on your pregnancy, this is such an exciting time for new parents! I hope to have the honor of helping you have a smooth and successful birth. I've been the Bradley Method® for over 5 years and each year gets better and better. The experience of meeting parents-to-be and teaching them what I've learned is one I can't properly describe. I enjoy this job thoroughly and know you'll benefit from this method.
My teaching style is simple...we all learn from the materials and from each other. Sharing personal experiences is an important aspect of learning in this class. My classes also incorporate a variety of teaching tools such as DVDs, role play, games, physical exercises, relaxation and guest speakers. Since I have a fitness and yoga background, I also emphasize a more in-depth look at breathing during labor and additional exercises that will benefit your labor and birth experience. In 12 weeks, you'll learn how to be a great coach, acquire the tools needed to navigate the hospital environment, practice labor positions and coping skills, become closer as a couple and enhance the mother/baby bond.
