Bradley Method of Natural Childbirth

The Bradley Method emphasizes that birth is a natural process. Mothers are encouraged to trust their body. Healthy mothers and healthy babies is the goal! With adequate preparation and education most mothers can give birth naturally, without medical interventions. The Bradley Method teaches 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.
