In my lifetime, I'd only heard horror stories about pregnancy and childbirth, so I was amazed when our friends told us their beautiful birth story. I remember them both beaming from ear to ear,  and going on and on about how prepared they were, how together they felt through experience, how quickly she recovered, and how wonderful it was to give the gift of a natural birth to their daughter. I took note that they had used The Bradley Method®, and in 2007, when I became pregnant with our first baby, I knew that we were going to give it a try. Mike was skeptical, but willing to go along with my crazy idea to support me. Through the classes, we saw just how much education and practice can change your whole perspective and we found ourselves prepared, confident, and eagerly anticipating our labor instead of fearing and dreading it. We were having our birth at a hospital that is notorious in the area for being "by the book" and somewhat contrary to the idea of natural births, but we were still able to have the beautiful natural birth we desired because of our preparations through the classes. We both walked away from our birth and said "more moms and dads need to know about this!" So, we took our teacher training in 2009 and I began teaching while we were pregnant with our second baby. We knew we wanted to have a home birth, and two years after our son was born, we gave birth to our daughter in a birthing tub in our bedroom - it was such a glorious moment! In fact, you can watch the video of her birth on YouTube
Because we have had such positive experiences, we are passionate about preparation and instruction through The Bradley Method®.  A natural birth really is the best beginning for families! During our classes, we will educate you on the importance of having a healthy and low-risk pregnancy through nutrition and exercise, the normal process of labor, practice labor rehearsals, relaxation techniques, introduce breastfeeding, and so much more. 

We would love to help you have the best birthing experience possible, so please contact us to get started!
