The Bradley Method® helped me achieve a natural childbirth! The birth of my baby was the most profound experience of my life. In that moment I joined the generations of mothers who labored in sweat, blood, and pain, but with immense strength and resolve, to bring forth their children into this world. And from that moment, I was in love with my precious baby. I would do it again in a heartbeat.
Women have been giving birth since the dawn of our species. Childbirth is an amazing natural and normal process which, in most cases, can occur without medical interventions such as pain medication, epidural, cesarian section. There are numerous benefits, both to the mother and the baby, of a natural birth. Sure, it can be scary, and undoubtedly painful, but with the proper preparation and labor support, it can be done!
In the Bradley Method® of natural childbirth classes emphasize the importance of continuous labor support from a loving partner in the success of a labor, along with relaxation techniques for pain management, and information about the labor process. Classes will be taught in east bay locations of San Leandro and Concord. Each class series consists of 12 classes that are about 2 hours long. I recommend you begin when you are between 5 months/20wks to 6 months/24wks pregnant to ensure you complete the course before your baby arrives!
