A FEW THOUGHTS FROM SOME OF OUR STUDENTS...
"I am so thankful that I got involved in taking Bradley classes with the Hokenbrough's! After having experienced an induction that ended in an epidural and then emergency c-section, followed by a very painful vbac that went well but also involved an epidural, I didn't think I had much chance at experiencing a natural birth. Leah and Lincoln were so kind and patient and my husband and I felt so much more prepared just after the second class. Going into the birth of our daughter I knew what to expect and what I needed to do, and (almost more importantly) my husband was completely confident and was invaluable to me achieving a drug free labor and delivery. It was such a good experience and I would recommend it to everyone! Every pregnant woman should be educated in the way that the Bradley Method educates!" ~Genna & Josh
"I had decided at a very young age that if I ever had children, I wanted a natural birth. I knew labor and delivery would not be easy, especially when you're going to deliver in a hospital that is known for not being natural childbirth friendly; it was critical that we were as educated and prepared as possible. Studying the Bradley Method of Childbirth gave us the valuable tools needed to achieve our natural birth. The role of the coach is vital; without Jason's strong coaching and advocating on my behalf, I know our daughter's birth story would have had a different outcome. I cannot say enough positive things about the classes and everything they taught us!"
