Did you know that every Bradley teacher experienced an unmedicated birth?  This is a certification requirement.

Did you know, via our teacher certification contract, each Bradley teacher is required to teach a 12 week series.  

Families who consider using medication take my classes.  The Bradley Method prepares a family for an unmedicated birth, and the choice to use medication is up to each family and their medical provider.  By the time a family finishes my series they will know how to make informed decisions and how to make their decisions based on their personal needs at the time.   No matter the outcome, unmedicated or medicated, my students have my full support and respect. 

Life is too short to judge yourself or to judge a family by their childbirth choices! 

In the 12-week series, that I teach, you will learn the comprehensive elements of a normal labor and birth, strategies for managing strong contractions, acupressure, and a variety of labor and birth positions.  A nutrition and breastfeeding thread will be taught every week.  Labor rehearsals are offered every week too. A family will be given volumes of links for additional personal reading choices which relate to class topics.  

By class 9 and 10 you will be able to construct the progression of labor and birth on my classroom wall!  You will learn vocabulary words that you never knew existed and words that I never thought I could pronounce!  

Oh, and the hormones and reflexes you never knew you had, made just for birthing!  And what about the silly or serious things you might say and do to help others know what stage of labor you might be in!  All class material builds upon the previous classes, especially the relaxation practices, vocabulary reviews and the progression of labor and birth.  I could go on and on.

And yes, your physical sensations change with the progression of labor helping you and others to know where you are in labor.

A Student Comment

As I have been thinking about the many wonderful things that we took from your class, I just wanted you to know that I think that you achieved perhaps the most important thing that is so important to the Bradley Method. And that is that you created a truly safe and warm environment for us to share, learn and grow to trust in. ~ Merillee, RN 

Believe You Can Have the Kind of Birth You Want in Any Environment Where You Feel Safe!
