There are so many times that I think about just how much you mean to me, and my family.  Your mentorship guided me through the process of having two outstanding birth stories.  The value on those memories is priceless to me.  Thank you for being my inspiration in so many small ways.  Your consistent compassion is one thing that I will try to carry with me always.-Jolyn

About Us 

Karen and Jeff teach classes together whenever possible. Jeff gives the viewpoint of husband, coach, and father. Karen is the one who has had nine wonderful pregnancies, labors, and deliveries using techniques learned in Bradley classes. All of their births have been all natural wonderful experiences. Their first child was born in 1991 and their ninth was born in June 2015.  Karen has given birth in a variety of settings and situations which add to her knowledge about birthing.  Jeff and Karen teach classes together because they enjoy them and wish to help other couples have the birth of their choice.

Karen and Jeff became affiliated Bradley instructors in 1997 and are continuously updating their knowledge by attending lectures and conferences, reading books and journal articles, and by listening to birth stories.
