Congratulations on your pregnancy and thank you
for your interest in The Bradley Method®!
Preparing for a natural birth will give your baby the best possible start in
life. It's the greatest gift and you alone are able to give it.
"Remember this, for it is as true and true gets: Your body is not a lemon. You are not a machine. The Creator is not a careless mechanic. Human female bodies have the same potential to give birth well as aardvarks, lions, rhinoceri, elephants, moose, and water buffalo. Even if it has not been your habit throughout your life so far, I recommend that you learn to think positively about your body." — Ina May Gaskin
In my class, we'll cover the entire process of normal
birth, as well as any variations that you might encounter, so that you and your
coach are knowledgeable, confident, and empowered to achieve the birth
experience that you want. We will discuss proper nutrition, exercise, and
relaxation techniques that will effectively prepare your mind and body for the
work of labor.
Your coach will learn techniques on how to be an active
participant in your pregnancy and birth, not an observer or bystander, so the
two of you can welcome your new baby as a team. Coaches can be the father, partner, friend, or family member. Whomever mom chooses to be by her side and support her at birth is welcome in class.
Classes can fill quickly so please contact me to reserve your spot. I look forward to hearing from you!
