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.
