Since 1988 I have taught more than 900 couples The Bradley Method® of natural childbirth. My husband and I took Bradley classes in 1986 for our first baby, and after an amazing, natural birth I decided to become certified as a Bradley instructor. Since then, we have had three more children, all born naturally using the great techniques taught in The Bradley Method®. Our babies were born  in several settings; birthing centers, at home and in the hospital.  Both my instructor training and four unmedicated births have given me a depth of experience that testifies to the fact that this method really works!

Remarks from some of my Bradley graduates:

"Maria was a phenomenal teacher. Her classes were well-prepared and organized and she is extremely knowledgeable. We felt very comfortable seeking out her opinion."

Comment from student on recent Bradley teacher evaluation

"Thank you again for being such a lovely and informative instructor for our Bradley course. Jonathan and I valued our experience in your class and learned so much to help us with our journey to natural childbirth and parenting."

Keri B., Television Development Production Manager and Jonathan B., Sports Marketing consultant


"Thank you for teaching  the Bradley classes. I learned so much sitting in your living room! One of the most important things you taught me was to work through my fears of childbirth before labor. After your class I was able to let go of that fear and have confidence in the natural process of giving birth. Thank you for playing such a crucial role in our birth experience."

Faith S., Teacher and Evan S. Software Engineer

"It was a pleasure to find out how logical and well thought out the Bradley Method was. After taking the class I was no longer terrified of birth, I even felt confident that I could have delivered the baby myself if I had to (though thankfully that didn't happen.) Maria was no small part in that. She teaches you what to eat, how to exercise, and how to take care of yourself. She (as most people who have used it ) believe that the Bradley method is the best way to give birth, but she is more interested in giving you and your baby the best birth possible."
