Home   About Me   My Classes   Why 12 Weeks?   Course Content

Are you ready to feel prepared and confident about your birth? Taking a Bradley Method® course in our first pregnancy changed the course of our births, and I've been passionate about helping others have their best birth ever since! This course is centered on the concepts of relaxation for comfort, using hands-on techniques, movement and position support to facilitate a smoother experience. Plan to bring your support person because we share how they can best help you through labor. Your body was built for this, and we can help you prepare for the most exciting day of your life!
 
We will share a broad range of comfort techniques for you to have confidence in your knowledge and skill at handling different circumstances in birth.  We expand on available options & variations of birth, so you will feel prepared to write out a plan for your birth preferences with the information you need to make decisions you feel good about.  Prenatal health and comfort, pregnancy and birth specific exercises, nutrition, breastfeeding, and postpartum /newborn needs are covered to assist you through the entire process.  It's more than a method, it is a toolbox full of techniques and skills that you can use for comfort while you are pregnant and during your labor and birth!
 
As cesarean rates skyrocket in Louisiana (currently one of the nation's highest at 39%), we feel that prepared childbirth classes provide the best education for avoiding unwanted interventions and achieving optimal outcomes for mothers and babies. Nationwide childbirth education statistics show that mothers who have taken a childbirth preparation course reduce their chance of needing a cesarean by 25%!
 
Our Childbirth series meets once a week for the duration of the course. Are you in a rush with due date too soon to complete the series? Private classes are available, and if you have special circumstances or needs, please let me know.
 
Each class is 2 - 2.5 hours long, the full course is over 24 hours of instruction.
