When and Where Are Classes Held?

Classes are held on 12 consecutive Sunday nights. Classes run for two hours, from 7:00 to 9:00 PM. We meet in my home in central Charlottesville.

The next class series is from April 19 through July 12, 2015

Who Should Come to Class?

In addition to the mother-to-be and her partner, any others who will be involved in your childbirthgrandmothers, sisters, friends, etc.—are welcome to come as well (at no additional cost, regardless of how many attend).

How Much Do Classes Cost, and What Is Included in My Fee?

Classes cost $300, and include the following:

  • Series of 12 2-hour Bradley Method® childbirth education classes
  • A Bradley Method® workbook and class handouts
  • Healthy snacks each week
  • Labor coaching as needed via phone or Skype
  • One in-your-home breastfeeding help session following the birth, as well as phone, Skype, or email breastfeeding help as needed. (Please note that breastfeeding help is offered in my capacity as an International Board-Certified Lactation Consultant, not as a Bradley Method® instructor.)
  • A post-birth get together for couples to discuss their births, compare parenting notes, and celebrate their new babies!

When Should I Take My Bradley Method® Classes?

I suggest waiting until the fifth month of pregnancy to begin classes. The April - Jul, 2015 course is ideal for couples with late July, August, or September due dates. However, couples with earlier or later due dates are also welcome.

I Missed the First Few Classes; Can I Still Register?

Space permitting, new couples may continue to join until the fourth class for a prorated fee.
