"Gabrielle is such an incredible doula! The class was great preparation for labor, and as our doula she helped my husband and I achieved the birth we both wanted!! As first time parents, during COVID, her support was invaluable!! Would highly recommend Gabrielle!!!" - Niccole M, Vacaville

"I never realized how much I did not know about pregnancy and labor! I have now learned how much I can help my wife throughout labor, and that dads are important during labor too!" Chris M. RN, El Dorado Hills

"Worth.Every.Penny." - Erik M, Orangevale

"I found the Bradley Method classes when I was pregnant with my 4th.  After 2 painful natural deliveries and a c-section, I was looking for a way to better handle my labor and have a better understanding of the birth process.  After taking the classes and having my 4th, my labor was NOT painful!  In fact, I can't even use the word pain to describe it!  I can only describe it as being intense.  I am so thankful that I found the Bradley classes and FINALLY had the birth experience I always wanted!"  Ashley F, Fairfield

"I could go on and on about how necessary I think these classes are for anyone expecting. For anyone who doesn't know her, Gabrielle is absolutely one of a kind and one amazing woman. Anyone who takes her class will find their family beyond blessed to have her be a part of their lives. Absolutely packed with info and amazing is she as well as the classes." - Nicole & Craig B., Isleton 

"My husband and I attended Bradley classes with Gabrielle for 12 weeks prior to the arrival of our first baby.  We are SURROUNDED by little ones between family and friends, so we had some ideas about childbirth, but wanted to check out what Bradley classes were about.  Gabrielle was amazing.  Not only did she invite us into her home and make us feel extremely comfortable to ask any questions we may have, but her wealth of knowledge about pregnancy and childbirth is astounding.  My husband and I learned so much that we were able to go into childbirth fully confident in what was going to happen, how we may be challenged, and what our responses to the hospital's suggestions should be.  As a matter of fact, once at the hospital, the OBGYN was pushing us towards interventions and as a result of our knowledge from Gabrielle's teaching, we were able to have a calm, unmedicated, no-intervention birth.  We love Gabrielle!!"  Jennifer & Rick F., Davis

"Gabrielle was a fun and energetic teacher. She was knowledgeable about everything she shared and always backed up her position with scholarly articles. We felt like the information we were learning was up-to-date and presented in a fun and easy-to-understand way."  - Tim & Jody W, Fairfield
"Bradley classes helped perpare me mentally and physically for my homebirth VBAC.  It was a healing birth experience after my unplanned c-section with my first child.  My husband and I were both prepared for the for the experience and were able to handle any obstacles we faced with confidence.  Gabrielle is so supportive and knowledgable.  I never believed a birth could be pain free! It was a wonderful and intense feeling; but NOT painful!"  - Chani G, Vacaville

"I would recommend this class for every father-to-be!  We had two natural childbirths before this class and there is no comparison.  After this class, you will have the knowledge to make the birthing experience a team effort.  This class is a must!"  Phillip F, Fairfield

"Gabrielle is an AMAZINGLY knowledgeable doula with A LOT of birth AND hospital protocol knowledge. She is VERY personable, so you feel perfectly taken care of every second you are near her.  BEST DOULA EVER!"  - Marcia A, Fairfield

"What did I learn the most from Bradley classes?  I had already given birth to two kids.  But, I didn't know that I could refuse things at the hosptial."  - Tamra H, Fairfield 

"Taking Gabrielle's class was the best thing we've done for our first baby.  She connected us with our midwife for an amazing home birth. We have the best birth story thanks to her and what we learned from Bradley." - Anh P - Carmichael

"From a husband's perspective, it was a completely awesome experience. Her class was wonderful and she brings all her experience and knowledge with her plus more. I'm a Paramedic, so I thought I was going to handle getting everything ready for our home birth. When labor started, I couldn't leave my wife's side. I needed a second set of hands asap! Gabrielle came as soon as we called. Her entering our house was such a great relief. She had exactly the right words to say. She got us exactly what we needed and what we didn't even know we needed!! Her photos and videos taken during the event are absolutely remarkable. I don't think there was a single moment that was not captured! This is something that can only come from experience. Gabrielle has also been available throughout the first couple years of our child's life with any questions or concerns we had, so I feel like her service has never ended. We're excited and enthused to be working with her again for the birth of our second."  - Veikko A. Vacaville

"My sister kept telling me that I'd never be able to have natural birth... that she's 'stronger' than me and she couldn't handle it without an epidural, so there's no way I could. In labor, I kept waiting for it to get worse, but it never did. What Gabrielle taught us really worked at keeping me calm and confident."  -  Jessica A., Vacaville

"We took Gabrielle's class for our first baby. I absolutely wanted to do a refresher class when we were expecting our second. I told (my husband), 'all I want for Christmas is Gabrielle's class; and for my birthday, I want her as my doula!'" - Shelbi F., Rio Vista

"(My husband) was very prepared.  He nurtured me throughout the labor and tried many techniques of relaxation.  He made sure we stuck to our birth plan when I was ready to call it quits! Thank you so much!  We were able to have the birth that we wanted thanks to your classes!" - Tracy H., Napa

"Gabrielle came and it was like the clouds parted and the rays of sunshine came down and it was all better." - Melissa D., Vallejo

"Gabrielle did something with her hands that was amazing for Mel's back; like magic with a Rubik's cube." - Donny D., Vallejo
