Home   About Me   My Classes   Why 12 Weeks?   Course Content


Classes are held in McKinleyville, CA in a warm and inviting space. Each series of classes is 12 weeks long, with each class lasting about 2 1/2 hours. This is twice as long as most other childbirth classes and that is because we believe it takes that long to really train your body and mind physically, emotionally, and mentally to have the natural childbirth that you desire. It is a commitment, and it is absolutely worth it!


This 12 week series of classes is designed to give you and your partner all of the tools that you will need to have a successful natural childbirth. You will learn about nutrition, exercise, relaxation, the signs and stages of labor, postpartum and baby care, and most importantly, your partner will be trained as your labor coach so that he or she can really know how to help you during labor.


Classes include the Student Workbook, handouts, materials & prizes, our Bradley® Class Reunion, and access to my growing lending library which includes books, video, music, and a labor ball. Classes are often enhanced with video, models, and diagrams; and every class ends with a hands-on relaxation given by your partner.


Classes are ongoing and scheduled around your due date. The best time to start a class is in your 5th or 6th month of pregnancy. Please contact me to find out when you should start a class.
