My husband and I have had the privilege of experiencing two Bradley births. Our five year old son was an unmedicated, hospital birth in 2012. His birth shaped both our lives as it left me feeling empowered, closer than ever with my husband, and grateful for the opportunity to enjoy my son from the very first moment he entered the world. We truly believe God used what we had learned through our Bradley classes to save me from a c section with this birth experience. Our second son was a home, water birth in 2014. His birth was such a peace-filled event for us and it taught us what an incredible difference working with a team confident in my body can be. I'm grateful to have had the chance to experience both a hospital and home birth. Each are unique and ideal for certain couples and babies. I am passionate about sharing the education we learned through the The Bradley Method® with other couples as they search out what type of birth best fits their family.

That passion has led me to pursue a more active role in the U.S. birth culture. I am currently in nursing school, earning my Associate's Degree in Nursing. My classes are guided by strong medical facts that both my schooling and The Bradley Method® training support. I love serving the birth community of Maryland through Bradley classes and I look forward to continuing to teach when I'm a nurse.

Anyone interested in having an informed, healthy, full birth experience should consider taking these classes. I love sharing what I've learned in order to bring blessing and reward to others. My background is in teaching, counseling, and personal training. These prior occupations have lent themselves to what I now believe is my calling- to educate and empower couples to have a healthy and safe birth experience. 
The Bradley Method® consists of one 2 hour class a week for 12 weeks. These classes will cover topics such as exercise, nutrition, relaxation techniques, labor rehearsals, postpartum preparation, and ways a coach can best support the pregnant mother. 

Couples are provided with the Bradley student workbook and the book Natural Childbirth the Bradley Way by Susan McCutcheon as part of their course. Each week will involve educating couples to feel fully informed and ready for the incredible event of their child's birth. I do encourage couples to consider having an assistant coach present. An assistant coach will help support the coach (who is typically the husband) during labor and delivery. Assistant coaches are encouraged to attend most if not all of The Bradley Method® classes with the couple at no additional charge. 

To reserve your place in a series of classes, please register by the 5th month of your pregnancy. If you're farther along than this, please contact me to discuss your options. I will consider holidays when scheduling classes and will work with students to establish a manageable class schedule for all participating couples.
