Home   About Me   My Classes   Why 12 Weeks?   Course Content
We meet once a week for 12 weeks, for about 2 hours each week. Classes are for couples - mom and her chosen labor coach (usually their spouse).  Classes are held in our home, creating an informal, intimate environment.  We allow 6 couples maximum per series, to make plenty of room for personal attention.  

Tuition includes the updated Bradley® student workbook, access to our lending library of books, videos, and relaxation tools, as well as supplemental handouts.  
It is recommended that couples begin classes around their 5th or 6th month of pregnancy.

**If you're interested in the class, but the time/day of classes makes it so you can't take them, please contact me -- there may be something we can do.

Classes include: 

- Discussion from the student workbook and corresponding worksheets
- Labor and relaxation rehearsals
- Videos
- Birth stories from Bradley® couples
- Snacks to support a healthy pregnancy
- Time for individual questions
- Interaction among fellow students, often leading to lasting friendships
- And much more...

What students are saying about our classes:

"This class was such a blessing! One thing I specifically appreciated about Dana was the grace-filled attitude she had about everything. Whenever you’re teaching a specific method or idea that you’re passionate about, it is so easy to get very black and white about it – sort of “I’m right and everyone else is wrong”. I thought Dana did a great job of making sure we were well-informed without laying on guilt. She emphasized that different ways are right for different families, while at the same time presenting the facts of research which support natural childbirth for a normal labor." 

- Becky & Aaron


"We were very glad to do the class and connect with others going through the same thing. Dana was a great instructor."
- Sara & Matthew

"[My wife] found that going in-depth into the phases of labor helped her understand the birthing process much better, as well as what to expect during labor. She thought the games played to learn these aspects were very fun and helped her to learn. She also found the different techniques to cope with labor contractions very helpful as well. The final class on swaddling/diapers/baby wearing was really informative too."    
- Tamsyn & Chris

 "This class has made me feel good about my decision to birth naturally and has prepared me for whatever may come on the big day. Thank you for putting mine and Matthew’s minds at ease."

- Megan 

"We really appreciated the effort that Dana and Dylan put into this class and how they made us feel comfortable! The emails sent out each week were a GREAT source to remind me of what we learned and the homework needed. I liked the idea for [weekly] snack because it gave us a break and allowed us to really get to know the other couples and more about Dana and Dylan as well. This was a great class and very informative. I would recommend this class and especially these instructors to anyone!"

- Matthew

"Dana, thank you so much for letting me be a part of your class. Your sweet and honest personality makes you easy to listen to. You are so full of great information and your dedication and enthusiasm make your class so much fun!"
- Kaitlyn 

"We feel prepared to face childbirth and parenthood in a way that we could never have felt before this class. Your rate for the course is more than reasonable, and it is quite obvious that you are teaching Bradley Method to help others. We are so happy to have met you and your family, as well as the other couples!"   
- Amber & Rahul

"Sean and I attended our last Bradley Method class with our awesome instructor, Dana! I can't believe that we've already completed our 12 week course but one thing is for sure--I feel 100% prepared for birth and postpartum AND I am actually looking forward to experiencing an empowering, natural birth!"
