A little about myself...

I have been teaching The Bradley Method® classes since 2002 here in Sarasota. I am certified as a doula through The Bradley Method® as well. Since 2009, I have been offering  birth doula services for home, hospital, & birth center, and have attended nearly 200 births; VBACs, cesarean, & twins included. Postpartum doula services are offered as well.

I was introduced to The Bradley Method® when we found out we were pregnant with our first child.  I knew that teaching this class would be a great stay at home career for me!

We have three beautiful "Bradley babies" : Audrey, Sarah, and Michael Joseph. Audrey and Sarah were born in Sarasota Memorial Hospital and Michael Joseph at home.  All of my prenatal visits & births were attended to by midwives. All my babies were born without the use of medication for pain or invasive procedures.  All were 2 weeks "late", so we had to learn how to approach that situation.  No complications, no episiotomy, only minimal tears that did not need stitching.  Needless to say I am very blessed.

These classes are excellent preparation for any situation or birth place choice.

 Why I believe in The Bradley Method®:

I believe in parental responsibility for their choice in practitioners and educating themselves

I believe in the right to informed consent 

I believe the father is an integral part of the birth team  

I believe pregnancy and every part of labor & delivery and prepares you/transforms you into Mommy.

Most of all, I believe in women knowing how to give birth; teaching women to trust in their bodies, and to take care of themselves and their growing child.

You will grow and change because of this experience.

I am grateful to be in the expectant couple's life during this very special time! 



Congratulations and thank you for your interest in The Bradley Method®  childbirth classes! Over the last year The Bradley academy has helped us to adapt to the current needs of our clients. An online workbook was developed as well as an online "hybrid" class. These are included with your choice of in person or zoom class series.

Each class lecture time covers a specific topic following the workbook. We also include nutrition, exercise, a relaxation technique and video presentation.

I have a magazine/book lending library available. A resource book will be provided to read/copy from during the series, as well as handouts. 

My classes are fun & flexible. There is always enough time for individual attention.

We get together for a reunion about two months after the couples in your class have birthed.

Cost of the series includes the student workbook, use of resource book, and me as an encourager & resource for any questions you may have. It is never too early to take these classes. I usually like for clients to join a class around 20-22 weeks. Couples may continue to join other ongoing classes until their birth, for free. Payment plans can be arranged.  







Please call if you are interested in joining a class, or have practitioner or other resource questions.  The schedule below is a rough estimate of dates & may change as needs arise.

I generally teach weekly Monday evenings 630-830pm in my home. You may sit in on a class if you wish.

I would like to offer an Early Pregnancy Information class. If you have an interest or a venue (mom's group, church or school..)please contact me to discuss. I look forward to speaking with you!

Peace and love,

Laura Meyer
