Class details:

  • Bradley Method classes are suitable for all birth settings - home, birth center, or hospital. The information we cover is important in all settings. As a former doula, I've attended births in all settings and I share my experiences with my classes. Your birth should happen where YOU are comfortable!

  • Class length is 12 weeks, so plan accordingly. Yes, it's a commitment. Yes, it's worth it. How long did you plan for your wedding? Exactly!
  • Class was formerly held at my home in Oak Forest, north Houston. However, due to the pandemic, we are currently meeting via Zoom. I have space for up to 8 couples per class. 
  • We meet on Monday evenings. Class always runs from 7-9 pm, with the exception of going over slightly if I have an amazing birth story to share or we are having fabulous discussions. Which I encourage!
  • We watch videos of birth. Lots of them. Before I scare you away, please note that they are wonderful examples of your amazing body. And tell your coach that they are simply preparation for when it's actually your birth. It's best to know what to expect!
  • The Bradley Method recommends that we do not put our tuition rates on our websites. So, you will need to contact me for pricing. However, I can tell you that the classes are very affordable. And, did I mention, worth it? 
  • To register for a series, send me an email at or give me a call at (281) 638-2188. I will send you a couple of registration documents via email. It's that easy! My classes have been known to fill to capacity so it's wise to register ASAP.
  • When coming to class please bring 2 pillows from home and wear comfy clothing as we practice relaxation and exercise. Those are the only supplies you need. I will supply everything else including an information filled, updated Bradley workbook!

Bradley Method classes are the best. But don't take MY word for it. Here are some testimonials from my students over the years...

"Dorin played an instrumental role in preparing us for the birth of our child as our Bradley instructor.  Not only did the course prepare us for birth but also brought us closer as a couple.  The Bradley Method promotes the involvement of the father as the coach both during the pregnancy and the birth.  This role was critical because it helped my husband to be included during the pregnancy and also prepared him to support me during the birth.  Furthermore, the relaxation techniques we learned during the Bradley course were essential to the laboring process."

"My husband and I highly recommend the Bradley course to any couple preparing for the birth of their child.  More importantly we specifically recommend Dorin as the instructor.  She not only ensures that you are prepared but cares about you as a couple and about the birth of your child."  

Sean and Jenny-2003 

"Dorin's classes were jam packed with information, they were enjoyable and never dull, they were interactive and motivating, and they taught me everything I needed to know in preparation for my birth and baby."

 Todd and Leslie-2003

"The education, preparedness, and confidence of having a healthy pregnancy and natural birth that The Bradley Method provided was invaluable.  And, it worked!"
Joel and Theresa-2004

"I want to thank you for the Bradley classes - I can't imagine having a baby any other way. Thank you for the knowledge - it makes such a big difference!"

 Kishan and Mona-2007

"Through Dorin, I had access to a world of information and found a support group of women and men who all had the same feelings I did about birth.  I found that Dorin's classes offered me answers to all the questions I had about childbirth and beyond.  She focused on diet and exercise but went on to topics that I had never really given much thought about. The classes however, were much more than all the wealth of information I received.  I received confidence and comfort in my pregnancy.  I've always considered myself a strong woman, but found in pregancy that I was the most emotionaly unstable I have ever been, and second guessed myself every day on just about everything I was doing.  I found empowerment with Dorin.  She is another strong women offering education and comfort to any other woman who is willing to learn.  She was never invasive or offensive, but kind and gentle in every aspect.  I found inspiration through her and went into my labor knowing that it would be hard but that I could do it.  It was one of the most difficult things I've ever done, but I accomplished it and the bond between my child and myself is more intense that any emotion I've ever known.  I have to thank Dorin for her support, for all she is.  She is a beautiful women that helps other women to see their own strength and helped me accomplish the most amazing moment of my life." 

Daniel and Christy-2007

"When our first child was born, we had taken the one-day course at a hospital, but the birth just felt like a blur and I didn't understand everything that was going on. With our second child I wanted to be better prepared as a husband to help my wife, and Dorin's class gave us both the confidence and practice we needed to feel ready for the birth. The "homework"- relaxation exercises that we practiced helped up spend quality time together, and Dorin was understanding, listened, answered questions, and was great about making sure the class time was not just a lecture - it was fun, worthwhile, and interactive. The birth of our baby girl at home was still fast-paced and intense, but it wasn't such a blur this time for me, and it sure was a lot more relaxing."

David and Lisa- 2010

"We took a shorter, cheaper, natural childbirth class before delivering our first daughter that did very little to prepare us for actual labor. I ended up having a hospital birth complete with epidural and a host of other interventions that I had previously wanted to avoid. I had thought I was prepared because I had taken prenatal classes but not all classes are created equal! We had several friends recommend the Bradley Method so when we found out we were pregnant with our second, we signed up. My husband and I felt more informed and better prepared from the first introductory class than from all the prenatal classes we'd gone to before. Our time is limited and finding a babysitter for our older daughter every week for 12 weeks was a big commitment for us. Every single class was well worth it! Dorin is knowledgeable, always came to class prepared and her experiences as a doula add so much. She gave us the information we needed to make informed decisions in the best and worst case scenarios. My second daughter was born at home, naturally, after a long 24 hour labor that we would have not been prepared for without having taken these classes. In the moments that I wanted to give up, my husband was there cheering me on because he was also convinced of what we'd learned. I recommend Dorin's Bradley Method class to every pregnant woman I meet (even strangers in the grocery store)!"

Randy and Jessica-2011

"Thank you so much for getting us into this class. Ben said he was glad we took the class. He said there were so many things he just never knew about the whole process and would definitely take it again. I feel SO MUCH more prepared. Thank you again for your wealth of knowledge and support. You have a unique calling and a gift for teaching." 

Mika RN and Ben RN- 2012
