The Bradley Method® is a series of classes that teach natural childbirth and views birth as a natural process. It is our belief that most women with proper education, preparation, and the help of a loving and supportive coach can be taught to give birth naturally. Single moms and same sex couples are welcome. Anyone can be your coach- friends, family, or a professional labor doula.
The Bradley Method® teaches a system of natural labor techniques in which a woman and her coach play an active part. It is a simple method of increasing self-awareness, teaching a woman how to deal with the stress of labor by tuning in to her own body. The Bradley Method® encourages mothers to trust their bodies using natural breathing, relaxation, nutrition, exercise, and education.
Our classes also cover fun labor rehearsals, informed consent, birth plans, variations of labor, and interventions to help couples have the birth experience of their choice. We also include post partum care, newborn baby care, breastfeeding and an introduction to attachment parenting and baby wearing.
These small group classes provide individual attention to our expecting couples. Each class series will include a student workbook, access to my lending library and videos, games and prizes, demonstrations, guest speakers (including other Bradley parents sharing their birth stories) and discussion. Some of the classes include a video.
