"Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body."

Elizabeth Stone

I first discovered the Bradley Method® 23 years ago, and have been grateful for that discovery ever since. There is no substitute for going into birth not only understanding how to birth, but having the knowledge to make truly informed decisions. The Bradley Method® has stood the test of time, and continues to give new parents the tools they need.

Ours is a Team-Taught course, as we each have unique knowledge to share. I am a returning teacher with a widely varied personal experience, from my first birth 27 years ago, to my fourth in 2012.  Matthew will provide the Coach’s Perspective. 

Classes are held in our smoke-free and pet-free guest house, in the Arlington area of Jacksonville. We teach the full 12 week course, with classes lasting 1.5-2.5 hours depending on material to be covered, and your own questions and concerns. Classes include labor rehearsals, relaxation practice, and video enrichment, as well as access to our extensive lending library and resource list. 

Classes currently on hold pending Hurricane Matthew repairs
