Congratulations on your pregnancy and thank you for considering The Bradley Method® of natural childbirth!
My husband and I used the method for the natural water births of our children and can personally attest to the fact that The Bradley Method® really works! In fact, over 87 percent of Bradley births are unmedicated.
We want to spread the word about what birth can be, so you can choose your own birth experience!
Our goal is to empower and educate you so you can make decisions that are best for YOUR family.
The class covers all aspects of having a healthy pregnancy and a natural birth -- including relaxation techniques, how to reduce and/or eliminate "pain" in labor, nutrition, exercise, interacting with your medical provider, birth plans, the physiology and psychology of labor and interventions, and how your partner can be a great coach -- as well as early bonding with your baby and breastfeeding.
The class is designed to be a safe, welcoming space where we can all learn from the materials and one another in a fun, informal way. The class incorporates videos, relaxation exercises, labor rehearsals, and physical exercises; students also receive a 125-page Student Workbook containing the class curriculum, study guides, and information on pregnancy, labor, birth, postpartum, coaches/doula training, ways of handling pain in labor, pre-birth bonding, staying healthy and low risk, nutrition, protein counter, birth plans, relaxation exercises, labor rehearsals, and breastfeeding.
