Bradley Method of Natural Childbirth

The Bradley Method emphasizes that birth is a natural process. Mothers are encouraged to trust their body. With adequate preparation and education, most mothers can give birth naturally, without medical interventions. The Bradley Method teaches a healthy diet and exercise throughout pregnancy. Mothers are taught to manage labor with the guidance and support of her partner and relaxation techniques. I make this class fun and interesting with visuals, games and multiple handouts.

Classes are held at Align and Thrive Family Chiropractic in Temecula
