Classes typically meet once a week for 2-2.5 hours for 10-12 weeks.  The cost for the class and workbook is $300, payable by check or Paypal, plus a $50 deposit due to hold your spot.  Private natural birth preparation classes are often available.  Rates depend on how many times we meet.

In 2004 I gave birth to my first baby without drugs or complications after having taken a course in the Bradley Method®.  In 2010 I trained with the AAHCC (American Academy of Husband Coached Childbirth) to become a teacher of the Bradley Method® and in 2011 began teaching my first couples. 

The  Bradley Method® teaches
  • women to tune into their body and work with their labors so they can birth without medication and routine interventions
  • husbands/ partners to give effective support to the laboring woman
  • relaxation techniques, comfort measures, and positions that work for labor and reduce and even eliminate unnecessary pain
  • exercises that prepare the body for labor/ birth
  • mechanics of pushing
  • excellent nutrition to help mom and baby stay healthy and low risk
  • basic breastfeeding techniques
  • consumerism--including how to choose a care provider and how to write a birth plan

Ultimately, my classes connect couples with other like minded folks and make everyone aware of all the choices they have in childbirth. My goal is to help you acquire the knowledge and training necessary to make the choices that are right for you and your family.  We do labor rehearsals, practice relaxation, view birth videos, and engage in informative discussions.  There will even be time for educational games!  The time will pass quickly and be well worth your while.
