What a wonderful journey you are about to embark on! When I became pregnant with our 1st son (we have had three) I knew that I wanted a birth where I could have a say in what was happening to my body and our baby. I wanted a birth without interventions and drug free. It was important to me to feel supported in these choices. The only one who supported my choices, other than Bill, was our OB, he suggested The Bradley Method®. Jack, all 7lbs 7ozs of him, arrived on a storm soaked night, with Bill on one side of me, my sister on the other and our supportive OB ready to catch, I took it one contraction at a time, looked to my amazing husband for guidance and a boost when I needed it. I felt powerful and empowered. It never occurred to me to ask for any medicinal help, I had everything I needed. I realized after Jack's birth that if I could have the birth experience I wanted, I could help other families experience the same. I wanted other women to go through birth not feeling afraid and victimized by the system that is in place. I wanted to teach couples that information is power, and that power cancels out fear. I wanted to convey that there is nothing more amazing than pushing out of your body the life you created with someone you love and the joy of looking into the eyes of your creation! Our next two sons were born at home with attendance of a midwife. The Bradley Method® is applicable to hospital, birth center or home. Bill and I have been a teaching couple for more than 22 years. We’re available to our students throughout their pregnancy as well as post partum. Bill and I have been invited to speak at two Bradley conferences, our topics included vegetarian pregnancy nutrition and teaching as a couple. We convey the Bradley philosophy that information is power. With that said, we believe most everything can be accomplished with a smile on your face and information in your hand. Together, we teach the full 12-week Bradley series. It’s our belief that equipped with the essentials of The Bradley Method® - nutrition, exercise, relaxation, and information, which supports the mental, physical and spiritual aspects of birth - you too will have the birth experience that is right for you. We have found in our own education and the education we will provide to you that fear is the greatest obstacle to overcome. A woman’s body was designed to give birth, this powerful beautiful experience is attainable. The Bradley Method® will give you the mental support your physical body needs to attain the birth you want.
