The Bradley Method® teaches true natural childbirth also known as Husband-Coached Childbirth, in accordance to the curriculum set out by the American Academy of Husband-Coached Childbirth (AAHCC) with endorsement by Dr. Robert A. Bradley (1917-1998) who wrote the book "Husband-Coached Childbirth" first published in 1965. The method was developed by Dr. Bradley in 1947, emphasizing that childbirth is a natural process, encouraging mothers to trust their bodies and focus on diet and exercise throughout pregnancy. Couples learn to manage labor using the Bradley Method® through deep diaphragmatic breathing, progressive relaxation and with the support of a partner or Labor Coach.
Every series of Bradley Method® Classes are 12 classes long. Husbands are highly recommended and encouraged to attend all the classes with their wives. If this is not possible for all the classes, an Assistant Coach in way of a close friend or family member can be substituted in place of the husband as an Assistant Coach.
Our group classes in Singapore are experiencing over 90% success rate for a natural drug free birth. We highly recommend Dr Paul Tseng for all first time parents. He was our chosen obstetrician, when we had our second child in Singapore.
