Welcome and congratulations on your pregnancy!
Only a few short years ago I was in your shoes, unsure of
the direction to take my childbirth education but knowing I wanted what was
best for my baby and to be as informed as possible about my pregnancy and
upcoming birth. But I was scared. Scared of the pain, the unpredictability, and
the horror stories I had heard and seen on TV/movies. After taking The Bradley
Method® classes and using the method to deliver my daughter I was able to look
back at my birth as the most beautiful day of my life. I had prepared for 12
weeks and went to the hospital informed, confident, and ready. When people ask
me about my birth they are always amazed to hear how fondly I describe it and
that there was no medication or intervention used at all.
Today I teach The Bradley Method® which includes the natural
process of labor and birth; preparation mentally, physically, and emotionally;
and how to work with your body during labor to avoid unnecessary pain. Other
important topics covered include nutrition, breastfeeding, and relaxation
practice. Support partners play an active role in the weekly
classes, learning how to be the mother’s coach, advocate, and support. Classes
include more than just lectures, they are interactive with games, activities,
discussion, videos, and we follow your very own workbook that is yours as a
I am also available to attend your birth as a doula and my students receive a discount.
Please contact me if you have any questions or are interested in signing up for a series. I look forward to meeting you!
