Naperville Classes


Welcome to The Bradley Method®! The Bradley Method® is founded on the principle that with proper education and preparation, you can have a natural, unmedicated childbirth. Bradley classes are the most comprehensive childbirth training available.  Natural childbirth is the safest and healthiest choice for both you and your baby. Trust your body...you can do it!

What are students saying? 

"Katie's class was integral to meeting my unmedicated birth goal. My husband and I felt so educated about my body and the birthing process. Understanding what my body was doing and why took the fear out of labor and delivery and instead gave us peace of mind that yes, what I was feeling was normal, that everything was progressing, and that our baby was on its way. What we learned in class gave me the strength I needed during the toughest parts of labor and delivery and the ability to say "I can do this." Having been through two Bradley births of her own, with all the twists and turns that one can expect with labor and delivery, Katie has the personal experience to be a loving mommy-to-mommy mentor and the education to answer almost any question with ease and authority. Katie's class made the difference between wanting an unmedicated birth and actually realizing that goal."
-Aleksandra V.

"Taking Katie's class instilled in me the confidence necessary to trust myself and my body during the natural, unmedicated birth of my son.  Katie is incredibly knowledgeable, and her laid back, honest and unpretentious delivery of the Bradley Method material created a very warm, non-judgmental and cooperative learning environment.  She is absolutely terrific, and I would highly recommend her Bradley Method classes to women who want to learn more about just how amazing, capable and strong their bodies can naturally be."
-Salina C. 

"It was my first pregnancy and I wanted to prepare myself so I bought many books on the subject, including "What To Expect When You Are Expecting".  It was not until I started Katie's Bradley Method classes that I felt confident about labor. In addition to her Bradley Method expertise, Katie shared her personal experiences and many useful resources like books, organizations, and friends with her class.  She was knowledgeable about what my body was doing and why. I would highly recommend her class!"
-Lydia C.

"The benefit of Katie’s class was not just the information about the birthing process, but it was the conversation and dialogue that it initiated. Katie’s class helped us feel prepared and knowledgable, even though we knew birth could be full of surprises. That preparation and knowledge contributed to making the day our son was born the best day of our lives. Katie provides a fun, informative class that I would strongly recommend for everyone interested in a natural birth." 
-Leah M.

"I first learned about The Bradley Method from a friend and then searched for a class near me and I found Katie's. She is so warm, super nice and is a lot of fun.  She's very knowledgeable about The Bradley Method and other activities to help support your pregnancy (ex. Chiropractic care near by, yoga/pilates, and other natural family options).  Her classes were fun and very educational, but both my husband and I felt that the after care she provided was worth more than the class.  Being able to text/call/email during labor with questions, after labor with nursing questions (we had tons because my daughter was losing weight and my supply hadn't come in because of a severe lip and tongue tie). She has SO many resources locally that she's plugged into and willing to help you find.  She helped quiet lots of fears in our early weeks and it's still a friend today over a year later."  
-Tania K.
