Dear Loved Ones, 

Through much prayer and evaluating my commitments, and desiring to honor them well, I am closing my birth business to focus attention on forming the nonprofit organization and suicide prevention program, Hold My Guns. 

I am honoring my existing birth work commitments through the end of the year, but not adding to them. 

If you're interested in finding classes near you, please visit and enter in your zip code. 

If you are considering becoming a Bradley Method doula/instructor, I want to encourage you to do so! 

The Bradley curriculum is the most comprehensive of the brands, and it is a joy to teach. Furthermore, it includes husbands. Many other brands minimize the husband's role. 

Teaching the Bradley Method for the past 11 years has made a difference in my doula work. It is my advice to anyone interested in doula work to consider being both an educator and a doula. My doula clients are often my students first -- which means that I have a well-established relationship with the couple by the time their baby decides to make an entrance. 

Second, the immersive nature of teaching the Bradley Method has helped me to fully understand the scope of pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum care and it has been more meaningful to me than any doula workshop I have ever attended.

If you are serious about birth work, you should consider receiving your training through the Bradley Method! 

I am forever grateful for the experience of being involved with birth work, and for all of the lovely people - even those yet unborn - whom I have had the privilege of supporting and working with professionally throughout the years. It a work that I look back upon with much love and satisfaction.

Much love, 


((Welcome friends from FB & Instagram!))

 "Here is a testimonial to your class! We received lots of compliments from the nurses and the midwife! They said that they would have given up for sure if they were me, but that I acted like it was no big thing. The coaching was KEY. My husband was so helpful and armed with so many different relaxation techniques and encouragement." - Natalie & Chris M. 

"Aetna covered the class 100% for us! (We would have paid out of pocket anyways, of course!! )" - Dan B. 

"It's funny, you have these little moments or short periods of time that come to define your life in some remarkable way... and your Bradley classes did that for me.  I am so thankful for them because they made me the mom I am today.  It was truly your teaching... It was the way you presented it.  I recommend the Bradley Method to everyone who asks and hope they choose it and it makes the same difference for them as it did for me." - Laurie C. 

"I cannot stress enough how incredible Sarah is! She's extremely knowledgeable and if you live nearby and are expecting, you should definitely consider [her upcoming class]. I know, 1000%, that you will not be disappointed. I don't know what I would have done without her when Elijah was on the way." - Linda

"To my friends who are expecting, or if you know someone who is, Sarah is a fantastic doula and teaches a great birthing class. She let us know about so many more options than the hospital class did. With Sarah's help I was able to manage my labor pains and knew how to effectively push. She also taught Dave a bunch of different ways to support me during labor, all of which I think he used." - JD

"'Thanks to your class, we were able to deliver Alexander last night at 8:17...naturally! He's amazing and was so alert at birth. He weighed in at 7 lbs 3 oz and 21.25 inches long. Your class really helped us feel prepared and helped Brad understand what was going on to keep things on track. Thank you for everything!' /'I can second that - I was amazed at how comfortable I felt discussing our birth wishes with everybody as Sarah focused on labor, I was able to discuss and guide the next steps of the birth based on Sarah's wishes. I understood everything that was happening throughout the process as the doctors did their work. I was also able to identify each stage of labor and provide the appropriate sort of support to Sarah throughout the process.'" - Sarah & Brad H. 

"People keep telling me how amazing I look and how awesome I am feeling after JUST giving birth only 15 days ago. It's all thanks to Sarah Joy Albrecht and The Bradley Method of Natural Childbirth. Thanks Sarah for being an amazing teacher and doula. Thank you also to my amazing coach for not letting me "give up". - Elizabeth M.

"I am so glad that I took Sarah's class. I learned how to keep my body healthy with exercise and eating right during my pregnancy. Sarah is an awesome teacher and coach. She is compassionate, knowledgeable, and very experienced. Because I took her class I know I was more mentally and physically prepared for birth! I had more confidence than ever during my labor to speak up for myself and let my body relax during each phase of labor. I gave birth naturally 5 weeks ago and couldn't have asked for a better experience. Sarah was also my doula and having her by my side made me more relaxed and comfortable.  I highly recommend her class to anyone who is pregnant! I also highly recommend her as a doula!!" - Cathy L.
