Congratulations!!! Having a baby is one of life’s most precious gifts, and I am so very happy for you. I am delighted that you are interested in The Bradley Method® as you think about and prepare for the arrival of your beautiful baby.
From the time you found out you were pregnant to now, I am sure you have experienced a wide range of emotions all the way from joy and excitement to nerves, fear, and concern back to wonder, amazement, and pure happiness. I remember when we found out we were expecting our first daughter (now 2 years old) and celebrating with my husband Lawrence. After a few minutes we looked at each other with wide eyes as the reality hit us that we were going to be parents, and all the responsibility that entails. We realized right away that these responsibilities started immediately, not just after our baby was born. We began to research about nutrition and exercise during pregnancy. We started thinking about where we wanted our baby to be born and how we wanted that experience to look. As we read more and more books and talked to more and more people, we discovered that we had a lot of questions. Then a good friend introduced us to The Bradley Method®; it was a perfect fit!
Having taken Bradley classes and given birth without any medication or interventions to my wonderful daughter Coralyn in 2009 and then again with our second daughter Kellah in 2011 and just recently with our third daughter Kyiah in 2013, I have become quite passionate about helping other couples have natural births. I want other couples to learn all the things that we did that enabled us to have such an amazing birth experience. The Bradley Method’s primary goal is to have a happy, healthy baby and teaches how nutrition, exercise, relaxation, teamwork, and knowledge can help make your pregnancy, labor, and delivery the best possible.
Giving birth to a baby is one of the most empowering and exciting things in the world! I am so delighted to have the opportunity to help people prepare for this wonderful time.
