Home   About Me   My Classes   Why 12 Weeks?   Course Content

Bradley Method® natural childbirth classes are offered in 12 week series. Each of those 12 weeks, we will meet one night a week for a two hour class. The classes cover a wide range of topics, all with the purpose of fully equipping our couples with the knowledge and confidence necessary to strive for a healthy pregnancy, birth, and postpartum/newborn period. 

Classes are held in in our home, and will be team-taught by my husband and myself. We feel that the husband is a vital participant in labor, and our classes help to prepare the mother's partner to support her in labor. Through team-teaching, we hope expectant moms' partners to feel welcomed, valued, and comfortable participating in class and at the birth. Each series consists of small groups so that couples can begin forming valuable relationships before baby arrives and more individualized attention can be given to each couple.

 It is recommended that couples attend class in their fifth or sixth month of pregnancy.
