Welcome, and congratulations on your pregnancy!

Registration is open for my classes beginning: 

April 11th, 2024 (best for due dates in late June-early September)

July 11th, 2024 (best for due dates in October through early December)

All classes are held in person, allowing for hands-on labor rehearsals, activities, and personal attention!

This is a special time, and your upcoming birth can be an amazing experience!  Are you considering a natural, unmedicated birth?  You can do it, and our classes can help!  You will learn:

  • How to help reduce pain in labor without drugs through relaxation and other natural techniques;
  • The natural processes of a normal labor and birth;
  • How your coach can support you beginning in pregnancy, and continuing through your labor and birth;
  • How to have a healthy pregnancy through good nutrition and exercise;
  • How you and your coach can make informed decisions regarding your pregnancy, labor, birth, and beyond;
  • And much more!

The 12-week series of classes will help ensure that you and your coach feel fully prepared for the upcoming birth of your baby. I have 10 years of experience teaching Bradley Method® classes, and I have continued to further my education in labor, birth, and breastfeeding throughout this time, ensuring that you will receive the most up-to-date information available. 

"When we found out we were pregnant we knew there was so much we needed to learn but not sure where to start. Frances' class was not only comprehensive but Frances herself really made us feel confident in preparing for labor and so much more. If you are looking for a class to help prepare you for all the surprises of pregnancy and labor this class is for you." - Toni H., 2023 Student

Small class sizes of no more than 8 couples allow personal attention, and encourage long-lasting friendships to be formed with other couples in your class.  My husband Lucas co-teaches Classes 4 and 11 to give a coach’s perspective.  Classes are complemented with videos, as well as other materials with information on the most current research on a wide variety of subjects related to pregnancy, labor, birth, and breastfeeding. I also include babywearing and cloth diapering demonstrations. 

"My partner and I loved the Bradley class and I recommend it to anyone who is planning on having a baby. With all of the prep and planning that comes along with a new baby I feel like this was the most helpful resource for both of us." - Kaylynn A., 2019 Student

You are always welcome to contact me or Lucas any time about any questions you may have. This access does not end when class does; I have students contact me months or even years later with questions about breastfeeding, postpartum, and subsequent pregnancies or babies. I love to help out whenever I can, no matter how long it has been since you were in class!
