Congratulations on taking the first step towards achieving a natural birth!
The natural process of birth is an empowering and life changing experience. It unites couples and families by creating a deeper commitment to each other and to their growing family. For couples who want to be more informed and involved in the birth process, avoid unnecessary medical intervention or desire an unmedicated birth, the Bradley Method® offers the most successful and comprehensive preparation available. Over 86% of couples trained in this method achieve a beautiful unmedicated vaginal birth. No other childbirth method comes close!
Goal of the Bradley Method®=healthy mom + healthy baby!
To accomplish this goal, Bradley classes advocate and teach:
· women to “tune into” and trust in their bodies
· active participation of the coach, partner or other support person
· proper nutrition to remain low risk and for a healthy mom and baby
· exercises to prepare the body for birth and promote a speedy recovery
· complete relaxation and natural breathing to manage contractions
· positive communication between couples and their birth team
· immediate and regular contact between mom and baby, including breastfeeding
· parental responsibility during pregnancy and birth and the importance of being informed consumers
· to trust in the natural process of birth
When a mother opens herself up to the natural process of birth, educates herself, and surrounds herself with those who believe in her ability, she is often amazed at the power and strength she finds residing within. A supportive and loving coach is paramount to the success of a laboring woman and a positive birth experience. A well trained coach knows how to effectively support a woman in pregnancy and become her advocate, ally and companion during labor and birth.
You and your baby deserve the most rewarding and safest birth possible!
