First allow me to say, CONGRATULATIONS! Pregnancy is an amazing time of transformation and growth, both physically and emotionally. I encourage you to explore our site and call or e-mail with any questions you might have.
I teach a different series on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 7-9:30 pm. Please check the date to see if yours will be a Tuesday or a Thursday class. Please email or call to get the latest class dates. Some dates have changed and some are being added.
My students receive twelve units of instruction, a Bradley Method class workbook, a notebook filled with related research, a lactation class, pregnancy related samples, access to our lending library of films and books, and a receipt to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.
We will help with developing your ideal birth plan.
We offer a full list of supportive care providers in your area. Whether you choose to birth at a hospital, freestanding birth center, or with a homebirth service, we can help you find the right care provider for you.
You also get continued phone and e-mail support, before, during, and after the birth of your baby.
We are very pleased to host an annual summer reunion party where you can get caught up with your classmates and make new friends. The party gets bigger every year and is a proud reminder of the important work we do.
These are just a few of the wonderful things being said by our Bradley students:
"For all women out there:
I know this much and that is that the Bradley natural childbirth experience changed my life in more ways than one. It was an amazing experience to birth naturally. Coming into Tina and Matt's Bradley class with the history of an epidural, episiotomy, and preeclampsia with my first birth, I had my doubts that "I" could birth naturally. Not to mention I am the type of woman who would prefer to be put to sleep for a cavity filling.
After just one Bradley class my husband and I knew it was for us and I had such faith in my body. We knew that I could do it. The class brought my husband and I together as one for the birth. He was so involved with my relaxation and was an amazing coach. I know that he is thrilled in regards to our birth experience. He tells every pregnant woman that he meets about it!!!
We chose to have our natural childbirth in a hospital. We were prepared with our birthplan in hand and made all of our wishes known to our OB. Having the plan and letting the OB in on it helped the birth go smoothly.
As we are planning for baby #3, I long for the experience of natural childbirth. What better way to bring a baby into this world. The way it was meant to be, the way it can be, the way it is for me!!!
My hope is that every woman can have the experience that I had. It was empowering, emotional and delightful all in one!!"

"The amount of education we took with us from the Overton's Bradley class was more than we anticipated. I highly recommend it to everyone bringing babies into this world. The only negative part about class was that it ended when I wish we could just keep it going forever. We made great friends and left feeling so energized each night."
--Leah and Jason, Homebirth
"Tina and Matt, Steve and I both felt that your warmth, humor, and knowledge made the class an extraordinary experience. Keep up the great work!
