I'm Kelsey Schwartz. About half way through my Bradley Method® Class in 2011 I seriously began considering teaching and after the birth of my first child I knew this was what I wanted to do. I became fully affiliated with AAHCC in 2012 and am looking forward to many years of helping expectant parents welcome their new family members!
MY BIRTH EXPERIENCE:
On September 23rd, 2011 my life changed forever. With my husband Thomas by my side we welcomed our little girl, Olivia, into the world...naturally. She arrived at 3:13pm and we were home by 7:00pm (just one of the many advantages to having a non-medicated birth). Despite being pregnant for 41 weeks and 4 days, over 42 hours of labor and several minor complications, I describe my birthing experience as "wonderful...wouldn't have done it any other way!". The Bradley Method® prepared us for anything and without the knowledge I obtained in class I believe I would not have been able to get through labor without intervention.
