I am so happy you have taken the first step to learning more about natural childbirth! The Bradley Method® covers everything from healthy nutrition and exercise to the stages of labor, relaxation techniques and coaching and strategies (for the dads/partners). Instruction includes videos, discussion, exercises from the Student Workbook. Class size is limited to allow for a more personal, individualized experience.
About me: I am a physical therapist currently working in acute care. I have spent a good portion of my career working with the pediatric population. I completed the Bradley Instructor training in Summer 2014. I was motivated to become a Bradley Instructor after having a successful natural childbirth in May 2013. For me, learning the Bradley Method® prior to the birth of my son was empowering! The classes made me feel more confident in my ability to have the natural birth I desired. I am convinced that any woman with the proper training can have a natural childbirth. But it takes training and preparation....and that's where the Bradley® classes come in. I look forward to sharing my experience and expertise with expectant parents.
In Appreciation: The Corvallis Clinic was supportive of my wishes for a natural delivery and has graciously invited me to teach at their clinic.
