In the Bradley Method® of natural childbirth classes, emphasize the importance of continuous labor support from a loving partner in the success of a labor. Classes will be taught in east bay locations of Alameda and Lafayette. Each class series consists of 12 classes that are about 2 hours long. I recommend you begin when you are between 5 months/20wks (ideal) to 6 months/24wks (cutting it close) pregnant to ensure you complete the course before your baby arrives!
Topics will include:
nutrition, strengthening exercises, pregnancy physiology, birth plan, labor partner's role, labor stages, labor practice, relaxation techniques, labor complications and variations, newborn care, breastfeeding, postpartum issues
(begin when you are 20-24 weeks pregnant to make sure you complete the course before your baby arrives!)
Lafayette/Orinda: Would you like to host a class series at your home and receive a discount on your course fee?? I'm looking for a weekend location with floor space for at least 3 couples and a TV! Contact me for more info!
Alameda: Classes are usually held through the Alameda Park and Recreation Guide. However, currently classes will be held either in a student host home or our home and rsume through Park and Recreation for the summer series. Next potential series will start in January based on student inquiry.
**Class dates and times may change due to student enrollment**
