Thank you so much for visiting my website. If you are expecting a sweet new baby, congratulations!

I am so excited to share The Bradley Method® of Natural Childbirth with you. I have been studying all things related to birth for over 10 years. I have had the awesome experience of being present at several births in varying roles, and each one brought tears of joy to my eyes! I think birth is one of the most miraculous events ever and I am fascinated every time I see a precious baby welcomed into the world!


What sets The Bradley Method® apart from other Childbirth Classes in our minds?
The focus on:
Relaxed Breathing
Husband (or close support person) as Coach
Nutrition with a focus on whole-foods, including adequate protein and salting food to taste
12 weeks of classes to allow for plenty of practice
Honesty about pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding with evidence-based information. 

I serve Shelby, NC and surrounding areas.
I happily welcome couples from nearby areas as well (such as Gastonia or Rutherfordton NC, etc.)!
