Home   About Me   My Classes   Why 12 Weeks?   Course Content

Congratulations on your pregnancy and your interest in The  Bradley Method?. I have been teaching The Bradley Method since 2003 after having been inspired by the beautiful, natural births of  our two sons.    I continue to be amazed by the transformative power of pregnancy and birth. Our babies' births were the most intensely joyful, spiritual, beautiful experiences of my life. Giving birth naturally gave me a greater appreciation of the depths of my strength and resolve in a way no other experience had before or has since.  My husband also felt deeply connected to and involved with the births of our children. We were able to use The Bradley Method again for the birth of our daughter in 2008 despite circumstances that posed additional challenges. 


My desire to support women and couples through this transforming process naturally grew into providing doula support.  I have been providing birth and postpartum doula support since 2005.  Providing doula support for over 400 births has given me a deeper understanding of birth and supporting the laboring woman through this journey.  I have also gained a unique perspective of the routines of  most of the local hospitals and the Alternative Birthing Center.  My background also includes a B.S. in Human Development Counseling and Family Studies and 15 years experience in social services and education.

 

I hope by attending my classes  you come to realize your own innate ability and inner strength to give birth as you envision.  I hope partners gain greater confidence in their ability to support their wife/partner throughout this miraculous event.
