Regina does not hold her classes on a fixed day of the week. Meeting days are set by the group to fit everyone’s schedule. Class size is limited to provide time to address for each couple’s individual concerns. Each week you’ll practice different relaxation techniques that get the coach involved, such as massage and visualizations, and do labor rehearsals. You’ll see birth videos to become more confident with labor’s progress. You’ll receive a Bradley® Method workbook and there’s a lending library with books and tapes you can borrow. You’ll learn about labor support techniques, the stages of labor and how to work with each to produce the most efficient labor; birth plans; breastfeeding and how to achieve a successful nursing relationship; hospital procedures and medical interventions used in childbirth; cesareans; newborn care and more.
Regina serves the Staten Island, Brooklyn and Central New Jersey area. She is located on the North Shore of Staten Island, minutes from the Verrazano, Goethals and Bayonne bridges.
What Regina’s students have said about her classes:
“Bradley® classes totally changed our views on childbirth-made us very relaxed and educated. Every uncertainty was cleared up. We're not afraid of labor and delivery." - Maryann & Paul
"Knowing what to expect physically & emotionally during labor and delivery reduced our fears.” - Veronica & John
"This class educated us. We expected that. It informed us by using all sorts of media. We expected that. We didn't expect it to be so comprehensive. We didn't expect Regina to be so generous with her time. We didn't expect so much interaction and to be so comfortable." - Susan & Carl
