Welcome and congratulations on your pregnancy! 

The Bradley Method® is a class designed for students interested in really understanding and taking ownership of their birth experience. This is a class for the expecting parent, but just as much for the support person, who will be learning to coach their partner through this marathon event. The class covers what both people can do during pregnancy to provide an optimal environment for this growing child. Whether you plan to birth at a hospital, in a birth center, or at home, these classes will provide information about what to expect, and how to deal with whatever situation might come up calmly and with confidence.  

The Bradley Method® is known as "Husband-Coached Childbirth", but as Dr. Bradley said, "our definition of a husband is someone who loves and protects this woman... 'Husband' or 'husbandry' is the act of involvement in such a capacity as to facilitate tremendous bonding and support. One does not have to be the biological father or a Y-chromosome person to have this title." This class is for the expectant parent and their coach, whether that be the baby's father, a partner, or another support person invested in the pregnancy and birth. Support people are routinely in the birthing room with their partners because of Dr. Bradley's influence, and this method focuses on preparing those partners so that they know what to expect, and can take on an active role confidently.
