My husband, Dave, and I completed a Bradley series in 2009/2010, welcoming our first child, a beautiful baby boy. Both he and I equally felt our Bradley classes were incredibly informative in the preparation for the natural process of birth. Our son, Ryan, was born after 12 hours of labor in a birthing tub at St. Joseph's Hospital in St. Paul. I could not have done it without my amazing husband coaching and supporting me through the process. Our bond, together with our son was so strong... after this experience, we knew we could accomplish anything together. So when we found out we were expecting our second baby in 2012 we were excited and hopeful for another wonderful birth experience. Using Bradley techniques and after 6 hours of labor we welcomed our beautiful baby girl, Allison. She was born in the same birthing tub as our son was in St. Joseph's Hospital and Dave actually got to catch her. It was an amazing moment in our lives that we will never forget. Our third baby, first home birth, was a new experience altogether. We were able to experience this miracle of life together as a family, a moment that will forever be cherished in our hearts. My husband, again, caught our little one in the birth tub after 3.5 hours of active labor and this time had the opportunity to announce that we had a beautiful little girl. We are so thankful for the incredible births we have experienced and hope to help new families experience the joy of a Bradley birth too!

After our Bradley classes and our three wonderful birth experiences, we discovered a passion for natural birthing and a more holistic lifestyle overall. We are thankful for our Bradley instructor who taught us that we can make informed choices that fit our lifestyle and our family's needs. Dave and I hope to share in your unique birth story and help prepare you for the most beautiful birth experience possible!
