I have seen three sons and a daughter to adulthood and now have three granddaughters and one grandson. The skills that you learn in my Bradley Method of Natural Childbirth Series will easily carry over into advocating for your family for a lifetime. 

When I found out I was pregnant with my last child, I decided to take responsibility and become educated regarding my choices in birth. I found myself amazed at the information that is available but not tapped into by most parents-to-be.  As I started learning more and more about the healthier outcomes of moms with a coach/doula it was so logical that it was almost comical.

I became impressed with the fact that (unbeknownst to most) the first trained doulas in the United States were actually husbands trained by Dr. Robert Bradley.

It also impressed me that Dr. Bradley started out teaching pregnant nurses that said, “I couldn’t have done it without you!”  This evolved his practice to include husbands when other obstetricians refused to.  

I realized there are women in all walks of life that are in need of support from a partner that is fully trained to advocate for them. Childbirth is one of  the most important and most vulnerable times of  life. 

I found that the best way to share this common sense approach with others was to become a Bradley Childbirth Educator. I have remained affiliated and current with the American Academy of Husband Coached Childbirth since giving birth naturally with the Bradley Method 25 years ago.   I have constantly attended birth events and conferences over the years to continue to provide valuable information to familes. 

I have enjoyed teaching new parents to be during these years and have continued to be inspired by the students that go on to share their stories or to become affiliated instructors themselves.
