Home   About Me   My Classes   Why 12 Weeks?   Course Content

Class size is small and held in the comfortable surroundings of our home in Gaithersburg, (clean, pet free environment!) which is three miles from the Shady Grove Metro stop. Classes are held on Sundays and each class is between two and two and a half hours long. The series itself is twelve weeks in length.You will receive a receipt that can be submitted to your insurance company for full or partial reimbursement, depending on your policy. 

 Once all the babies in each class are born, I hold a reunion where you'll get to see everyones baby and share your story. (The photo on the right is from one of my recent reunions.) It's always a fun and memorable way to wrap up your Bradley class.

TO REGISTER:  please contact me through email.  I will be happy to send you the information on how to sign up, including  price and exact location.  

Remarks from some of my Bradley graduates:

"Your class was an ideal environment for soon to be parents. Your extensive personal and professional knowledge about pregnancy, labor, and childbirth coupled with your calm, relaxing demeanor reassured us and gave us confidence about our abilities to birth and parent. We enjoyed our sessions so much! We would recommend your class to anyone seeking a comprehensive and supportive childbirth preparation experience." 

Khara T., PhD, Education Research Analyst  and  Doug T.,  Software Engineer 


"Thanks so much for your guidance througout our pregnancy. We were so lucky to have found such a knowlegeable and caring teacher to help us ultimately have the birth experience we wanted. Keep up the good work! We will never forget you."

Joseph B., Media Consultant  and Anne S., Massage Therapist


"Thank you very much for opening your home and taking the time to teach us. It takes commitment to be willing to do this for 12 weeks but it takes a special person to know how to transfer knowlege to others. It is clear that you enjoy what you do and that makes your students love your teachings. Thanks for giving couples the jump start to becoming parents. Thanks for sharing experiences, laughter and good energy. We truly appreciated it."

Audrey C., Teacher and Gary M., PhD, Biochemistry


"Learning about the process of childbirth in your class gave us the knowledge and confidence to have a gentle, happy and natural birthday for our daughter. The techniques really worked and the classes were fun! Your class was a must for us as a couple and we will never regret investing in this educational experience!"

Mary R., MAT  Science and Ryan R., Executive MBA


"The Bradley classes taught us how to appreciate the labor process, trust ourselves, and have faith in each other. With over three days in labor, a beautiful baby girl arrived, through natural means, and has blessed us ever since. We couldn't have done it without the assistance of Maria and her classes. Some of us in class still keep in touch and enjoy watching our babies grow together."

Chai and Tej S., DC-based attorneys
