Know your Options
A healthy mother and baby are the desired outcome of every pregnancy. Bradley Method® classes cover nutrition, exercise, relaxation, working with your body during labor, and more to help you achieve this end. You will be developing healthy habits that will not only effect your pregnancy but have positive long term affects on your family. You will be given information that will help you make informed decisions and ask intelligent questions of your care provider. Come and meet other expecting couples and explore your options for the birth of your child. I have been teaching since 2011, and I have worked with couples who have delivered in many of the hospitals in the Chicago area. I can also teach classes on Sunday evenings if Tuesday does not work for you.

My classes inform you of your options and allow you to practice labor techniques such as massage, visualizations, and acupressure. The classes will also teach you and your partner how to work together to achieve a positive birth experience and the best start for you and your baby.
