Greetings and congratulations on your pregnancy! Thank you for considering The Bradley Method®.  Please allow me to introduce myself.

I am Wendy Wilson, AAHCC, and I have been in the "birth business” since 1996. I have three children – my first two were born with managed/medicated labors and my last was natural. For me, natural was so much better! After my last baby was born I became interested in birth.  This led me to becoming certified with The Bradley Method®, which I have been teaching since 2001. I am also certified as a Bradley doula and have had the privilege to attend over 80 births. I believe that birth can be a positive, beautiful and empowering experience for families. I also believe in women/couples and their ability to give birth in the manner they desire. I teach Bradley
® because I believe in it and know that it works.

I became a Bradley Method® instructor because I have a passion for helping families during a very special and important time in their lives - pregnancy, birth, and the early postpartum period.  My goal, as a Bradley® instructor, is to make the classes fun, but informative, and for you to have the information that you need to make the choices that are right for you and the knowledge, skills, and confidence to achieve the type of birth that you want. 

I won't tell you that by taking the Bradley Method® classes you will have a pain free birth, but I can tell you that you will be well prepared with a variety of coping skills and techniques to manage your labor successfully.  During the classes you build your own "tool box" with those things that are going to help you cope and manage your labor and birth.

I am especially interested in helping those families who have had a previous birth experience that was not good for them, for whatever reason (induction, cesarean, not feeling like you were respected in the decision making process during your birth, etc.) and helping them to have a positive experience this time around.

One last thing, my teaching is all evidenced based, meaning that the information, skills and techniques that I provide are backed up by research about what is best for moms and babies. My goal is for you to have the information and knowledge to make the choices that are best for you and your baby and for you to have a positive, safe, healthy and empowering pregnancy and birth experience.  If this sounds like what you want as well, then this is the right class for you.

Quotes from some of my Bradley couples and caregivers I've worked with:

"The birth went well above and beyond my expectations. I give your class a ton of credit for that.  All we learned and prepared for made this experience the best in my life.” CM

"Wendy was a great instructor and makes you feel comfortable in her home for the classes each week. My husband and I appreciated her knowledge and guidance through the Bradley course. She is very passionate about what she does. Whether you desire a natural birth, plan to deliver in or out of a hospital, are having your first or second, or are planning a VBAC, empower yourself by taking Bradley with Wendy. It will be worth the 12-week time commitment."

"I really enjoy caring for Wendy's students during pregnancy and birth. They are well informed and motivated, and are usually satisfied with their birth experience, regardless of the outcome. They know they are doing everything in their control to have a positive experience." 
SF (a certified nurse midwife)

"Without the Bradley class, we wouldn’t have been educated enough to know our options.  It also helped us not be afraid of what was happening....It helped give me the birth I dreamed  of!"  LB

"The Bradley classes were so helpful! We knew at every step what was happening and what questions to ask. J was awesome - completely calm throughout." JV

"None of this would have happened without your role in my life!" DM (after having a successful VBAC) 

"The Bradley Method Classes went above and beyond our expectations in preparing us for labor.  Not only did we gain so much valuable knowledge about birth, physical fitness and relaxation, but we grew closer as a couple in the process.  When our 'labor day' arrived, we felt peaceful and confident." MM

"Words cannot express how much your class helped." JD

"Taking the Bradley Method classes was the best decision we made for our daughter's birth. After taking the classes we felt knowledgeable and empowered to make the best decisions for bringing her into the world. " AD

“I wanted to say that we owe you big. You really helped us prepare for everything and I am so pleased with our whole experience.” JM
