Welcome and Congratulations!!
You may be on this site for many reasons, but my guess is that you've heard about the Bradley Method® from someone or someplace; and for good reason. It works! Or can work. That's the beauty of it. It's YOUR pregnancy. You have the power to make it what you want (not the doctors or hospitals making it what they want).
In my case, I was afraid of the upcoming labor and delivery. I didn't know what I got myself into. I didn't like the feeling of unpreparedness or lack of control. The information that myself and my husband/coach learned in this class helped dramatically. We got to have the birth we wanted and how we wanted it because of the information we received in class. It was the best investment that we made in our pregnancy, in more ways than one. Another major concern I had was for my husband. You'll hear his side of things in class, but he came out of it being way more comfortable than I thought he would. Sometimes I feel that he birthed the baby in the way he talks about the experience. I'm so glad he looks back on it positively instead of fearfully.
My hope is in all of this is that you get as much out of it as we did. Why not feel comfortable in knowing what you're doing and how to do it? Why not train yourself and your coach for this special event in your life? Would you have a wedding without a rehearsal dinner or preparation? Not if you could help it. So why would you have a baby without the knowledge, training and preparation? Who knows. All I know, is that it worked for us, and I'm super excited for what you could have!
Read my "about me" and see if we might be a good fit for you and your family. I'm betting we are, but we want you to feel as comfortable as possible. As we will be seeing a lot of each other in the upcoming 12 week series.
