I would like to welcome you to my home to learn about childbirth!

When I first got pregnant, my husband and I were excited, but we also had no idea what we had gotten ourselves into. With so many emotions and things to prepare for the baby’s arrival, we almost forgot about the actual birth itself. We thought it would be pretty straight forward, but I soon realized I had no idea what to expect during birth and there was very little, if anything, I knew about how to birth a baby. 

Then the questions began to surface:  

“How do I know when it is time to go to the hospital?”  

“If my water breaks, does that mean I am in labor?” 

“Everyone gets meds so I shouldn't feel anything, right?” 

“What exactly will be happening inside of my body and what can I expect?” 

“Do I just...push?” 

And this was just scratching the surface. Little did I know that there were also a thousand other questions that I did not even know to ask as well. I did not know how I could prepare my body beforehand or the many things I could do to keep both me and my baby low risk.

Then, I stumbled upon Bradley® classes, and my world of confusion turned upside down. Very quickly, my husband and I were BOTH educated, encouraged, and empowered to do what my body was made to do. By the end, we walked away from our classes fully equipped to birth our child together with confidence and joy, make informed decisions, and to give our child the best start possible. 

Since then, we have given birth to three beautiful and healthy babies! We consider these births nothing short of the most amazing experiences of our lives, and I hope the same for you as well.

Please take a look around my site to learn more about myself, find information on course content and registration, and contact me with any questions. 

I look forward to hearing from you soon!


Thanks for everything! Taking Bradley classes and having you at our birth was the best decision. It was so worth it! As our doula, your presence was so loving and comforting, and your massages helped so much! ” 

Irene cares for her students and works with her heart. At our birth, it felt like she was my best friend or sister the way she supported me in every way with no hesitation. She also had so many techniques, tools, and positions that assisted with my birth. We love Irene and feel she would be a great instructor and doula for any expecting parents. ” 

You were so experienced as a teacher and that made us comfortable. One of the things I valued the most about this class was that it was so thorough like having several classes all in one and everything from birth to breastfeeding and postpartum care was covered!” 

Every class was so helpful and gave me such useful information and encouragement. It also allowed me to meet and build connections with other moms and dads in the same boat as us which was so helpful and made the 12 weeks definitely worthwhile! I was able to share my thoughts and ask any questions I had. Thank you for giving us a safe place to grow and learn. The class was amazing!”  

We really like the variety of teaching methods you used and you made us feel welcome. ” 

Irene had a very nurturing attitude that was comforting. Bradley class definitely helped me rethink the whole birthing process and gave me confidence. I especially appreciated learning about pain management. At our birth, we asked Irene to be our doula, and she was there throughout the whole process for my emotional/physical support. Just the presence of her with my birth really helped me to not give up, and I would say the massages really helped me endure the pain from contractions. Thank you!”
