I have been teaching The Bradley Method Classes for over a decade and have attended hundreds of births.  Every mother and every birth is unique and I pass all my experience and knowledge on to my students so that they can benefit from what I have learned. 

 I discovered The Bradley Method® classes when I was pregnant with my first child in 1999.  I had a beautiful natural hospital birth because I was motivated to find a supportive doctor and faithfully practiced the relaxation techniques, exercises, and good nutrition learned in my classes in order to have the healthiest possible baby and birth. 

My second child (and second boy!) was born in a birth center's birth tub, attended by midwives, and was another beautiful drug free birth.  I loved talking about my births and found that many women had less than happy birth experiences. 

I became a Bradley Birth educator so that I could support parents during their pregnancies and enable them to have the birth of their dreams. 

Working with my Bradley students has been extremely fulfilling.  I love what I do and always look forward to the next class. 

Here are some comments from a few former students:

"After just the 1st class my husband remarked at how he felt so much more enlightened and we both looked forward to learning much more! By the time I went into labor we were ready. Because of the techniques and exercises Shelia taught us I was able to labor for 36 hours without drugs. Our daughter, Bellarain was born, 9.2 lbs on Feb. 7, 2007. We are thankful to Shelia for being so forthcoming and excited about the information she shared with us. She is a mother of 2 who birthed both her sons with the Bradley Method and is living proof that all women can birth their children naturally if they believe so.

After taking this course with Shelia, I feel that even if you're someone who for whatever reason ends up with an epidural or c-section the course will help you further understand your body, mind, partner and baby. Thank you to Shelia Feldman and her expansive knowledge of Birthing the Bradley Way." Maria (Hairstylist), Jonathan and Bellarain

"My husband and I decided to try The Bradley Method® for the birth of our second child. Our classes with Shelia were so wonderful. We were impressed with her extensive knowledge of childbirth, her first hand experience, and her passion for helping to bring new life into the world...drug free. Her experience as a (Bradley Method) doula makes her even more invaluable (she gives THE best massages!). She certainly was a key to our own drug free, absolutely beautiful birth." Natalie, full time mother.

From former student, Michelle, an academic adviser, on her natural vaginal birth after a previous cesarean section (VBAC): "I was so thankful for the counter pressure techniques that we reviewed in our class. Once my contractions kicked in, I had back labor the whole time. I considered myself in full labor starting at approx. 7pm on the 16th (had baby on 17th at 11:19am)....but had somewhat painful contractions since Saturday when I lost my mucus plug. I ended up needing Marvin to do some counter pressure techniques during every contraction once they got pretty painful. Also, the one 'break' I got during labor was when I got on the knees to chest position and Marvin read a relaxation script to me. Although my contractions eased up and spread apart when i did this (for about an hour) I was able to sleep for a good 25 minutes! That felt like eternity and gave me the last energy boost that I needed. So thanks for all of the wonderful information from our classes and especially the info on the counter pressure techniques and the knees to chest position."
