“The class had us so well prepared that we both knew what to do when the contractions started. It helped us be on the same page and as the books said, only intensified the relationship I have with Demian. It is a beautiful thing to be able to rely on your husband so entirely that he becomes the one and only in the wonderful moments of having the child you share together. I couldn’t have imagined the trust and love that your class helped guide us to have.” Ayrielle F.
“I I have to tell you Liza that I am so very glad to have found your class. It changed my life (actually all of ours). Thanks for what you do! With gratitude, Natalie”…Read More Testimonials and Positive Birth Stories

“Without your classes to educate me and give me an understanding of everything that was going to happen, I would not have had any confidence and I certainly would’ve felt more like an observer than someone with decision-making abilities participating in this amazing process.” Bryan M.
WHAT: The Bradley Method is 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 you how to deal with the stress of labor. Bradley teachers urge couples to find what is comfortable for them in labor. Instead of seeking to control the sensations of labor with distraction methods, The Bradley Method encourages you to trust your body using natural breathing combined with relaxation.
WHO : Any mom-to-be and her coach will find the instructions valuable. The eight in-depth classes teach techniques which are applicable in any birth location (hospital, birth center, or home) with any qualified birth attendant.
WHY: For most couples, the fifth or beginning of the sixth month is the suggested time to seriously start training for labor and for their upcoming role as parents. The earlier you start, the better prepared you’ll be physically, emotionally and mentally.
WHERE: Class size is small, limited to six to eight couples, and therefore may be held in the comfortable surroundings of your instructor’s home or other suitable environment.
: Your currently affiliated Bradley instructor wants you and your baby to have the best, safest, and most rewarding birth experience possible. For that reason, we endorse and teach the following:
• Natural childbirth • Active participation by the coach • Excellent nutrition • Avoidance of drugs • Early training • Natural breathing combined with relaxation techniques • Tuning into and working with your body • Immediate and continuous contact with your new baby • Breastfeeding beginning at birth • Positive communications • Informed parents sharing in the making of responsible decisions • Parents prepared for unexpected situations (such as emergency childbirth or cesarean section)
