We are the proud parents of five children. Through personal experience we've found The Bradley Method® the most useful for bringing children into the world naturally. We especially like how it encourages fathers to participate fully in their families, and how it helps prevent common problems with natural solutions like good nutrition choices.

The Bradley Method® has made such an impact in our family that our grandchildren are Bradley® babies and their mom is a Bradley ®  instructor!



Unlike some other childbirth preparation programs, The Bradley Method® is trademarked.

Because of this, you know you'll be getting the full twelve-session high-quality class series that has helped generations of families find their way through this very personal experience. We charge $275 for the full class series, of which $25 is a non-refundable workbook charge. We often work out payment plans with students as needed.
Our next series will begin August 30th and go until early December, so it's aimed at parents due December and later, but we'll accommodate late November babies too, if space permits.

Class sizes are small, so there's plenty of time for discussion and personal attention. We'll help you sort through the many options to craft a birth plan that prepares your family for a wide range of possibilities. Each class runs about 2 1/2 hours. We teach from our home on Sunday afternoons. We have tentatively scheduled 3pm to 5:30pm, but we'll negotiate with all our students at the first class session.

Our classes are taught as a couple. We've been married for a long time, but we're very different people. By teaching together, we offer a wider range of perspectives than either of us could offer on our own.

We know that families take many forms, and we value the opportunity to share this special time with your unique family.

We hope you'll join us as you take your personal journey through childbirth.
