Welcome and Congratulations on your pregnancy.

My name is Bridget Ballenger and I have been teaching Bradley childbirth classes for thirteen years.  My husband and I have four children, all of which were born naturally using The Bradley Method.  The first two were born in the hospital and the last two were born at home with a midwife.  I strongly believe in The Bradley Method and a woman's ability to give birth naturally.  I am eager to share what I know with you and help to empower you to have the birth you want.

Comments from students who have taken my class:  
~We just want to thank you again for teaching us the Bradley Method. We learned so much and you are an excellent teacher. Your wealth of knowledge helped us make important decisions during and after the birth. We are so glad to have been in your class. Mandy S. 
~The class gave us the knowledge and understanding of the natural birth process and ultimately helped us achieve our goal of a natural birth. Thank you so much! Brandon, Sasha and Tyler
 ~Thank you so much for being our Bradley Instructor and for being so readily available and eager to help, especially when we were at the hospital. We learned so much from you and are very grateful for your support and advice. Lastly, thanks for being a friend. Ben L. 
~Our favorite parts of the class were hearing from previous couples about their natural birth experiences, group discussions and question and answer periods, interactive demonstrations of positioning and relaxation techniques, stages of labor, etc. You have such great explanations.  Bradley dad 
~I liked how involved and active you try to make each class with videos and games and being very open to questions throughout the class. Also, I appreciate the articles and Information you sent via email and facebook. I also enjoyed people coming and sharing their birth stories. The class was very helpful and informative. I'm very thankful to have been here.  Bradley mom
