Welcome to my web-site. I am glad that you are exploring your options and taking charge of your birthing experience.
My goal is to enhance that experience by guiding you through our 12 week course.
Classes are held in my Brea Loft or privately in your home.
We will focus on the importance of nutrition, relaxation and team work.
I would feel privileged to share this journey with you.
Testimonials from former students:
Working with Tina was an absolute joy. She prepares her class well and it is fun and interactive. My wife and I felt very prepared for a natural birth. By the end of class, we were much more knowledgable and very at peace. While eventually we found out our baby was breech and we had to have a c-section, we also felt prepared for that having studied that as a possibility. We knew what to ask for, what to present, what was optional and what is ultimately recommended. Tina was also available outside of class for any questions or concerns we had. We would definitely recommend anyone take her course!
My husband and I are so grateful for Tina! She made us into birthing and labor rock stars. Being first time parents, we researched and read everything about birth, labor, parenthood, etc. My husband wanted to have more of an active part in our birth. Our birth center, Southcoast Midwifery in Irvine advised us to take a birthing class. They told us about the Bradley method. And we are so glad they did! During our birth, we followed everything Tina said. I knew to trust my body and our instincts. Our midwife, doula and midwife aids were so impressed with how attentive my husband was. He knew exactly what to do and was amazing. Thank you for teaching and guiding us!!
We are so happy we took the Bradley classes with Tina. She's kind, caring, enthusiastic and a great teacher! Having Tina through all the steps of the pregnancy and coaching us on how to handle the natural process of childbirth was a great experience. She knows so much about the birthing process and really wants you to have the birth you want. Using the Bradley method she taught us, we had a happy, healthy baby girl the natural way. I highly recommend Tina to anyone thinking about taking Bradley classes!

" I can't say enough good things about our experience in the Bradley class with Tina as our teacher. She was very knowledgeable and experienced in the world of natural labor.
This was my second pregnancy and my first labor experience was not what I wanted. I ended up having an epidural, which I now blame on lack of knowledge. I knew with my second I wanted a natural labor experience, simply because it was safer and healthier for myself and my baby. My husband and I decided to take a class and boy am I thankful for that! I doubted my own ability at first, but became more confident through the 12 week Bradley course. I credit that entirely to Tina! She taught my husband how to be a helpful coach and helped me realize my own strength through relaxation techniques, physical exercises, and simply answering my questions no matter how silly they seemed. There is no way I could have given birth naturally without having taken this class. Knowledge is power! I am SO happy to say that I did it! My daughter came out super alert, immediately knew how to breastfeed and still is one of the happiest babies I've ever seen (I might be a little biased)."

Tina's welcomed us into her comfortable space (the snacks were a big hit) and her Bradley classes were a great help in preparing us for the expected and oddly enough, the unexpected. We entered into this journey with so much knowledge and confidence.
