I am a third generation Bradley Mom that believes in the body's inherent ability to give birth!  Anyone can experience the power and wonder of natural childbirth.  You just need to know how to work with nature rather than against it and trust in yourself!

I have been blessed with two amazing kids that were brought into this world without pain medication through the Bradley Method.  My daughter was born on April 23, 2005 in the hospital following a long, managed labor under the guidance of a physician who was not my own.  While she was born naturally, there were many things about the labor that did not go as planned.  So, I did tons of research, became an instructor, and prepared for the birth of my son so that I could have the birth that I desired.  My son was born on March 12, 2010 at a birth center.  His birth was extremely calm, quiet, and on his own terms!  Both experiences were very different, but valued all the same.  I learned so much from both and am able to share so much more with my classes because of the differences!

I gave birth naturally and so can you!  See you in class!
