Childbirth Classes Using the Bradley Method
What is The Bradley Method?
The Bradley Method® was founded by Dr. Robert Bradley. Having grown up on a farm, he assisted in the delivery of many farm animals. He observed how the animals instinctively gave birth. His experiences led him to become an Obstetrician/Gynecologist. In medical school, he was taught what he called, "The knock ‘em out, drag ‘em out" method of human childbirth. This hospital method became appalling to him. So instead, he helped thousands of mothers give birth using gentleness and relaxation. He believed that giving birth is a natural process designed to work with minimal intervention. In his 46 years of practice, he delivered over 23,000 babies and did not lose a single mother or baby to death. Over Eighty percent of students educated in The Bradley Method® and that use these principles deliver vaginally (natural childbirth), and have healthy babies.

"On our way to the first class I turned to my wife and said, "Wait, this class is 2 hours long for 12 weeks?! What can we possibly talk about for that long?" Before taking Bradley classes, I was under the impression that labor meant the time spent pushing the baby out. Through the classes, I came to understand that labor was a process that began well before that trip to the hospital; it is the most important journey you'll ever take. Bradley classes taught us what to expect throughout my wife's pregnancy and her labor and how to make the experience as safe as possible for mom and baby. We became educated in the advantages and disadvantages of many hospital procedures such as the administration of IV fluids to fetal monitoring. I even learned how to help my wife relax and focus through the pain of each contraction while the doctors and nurses were buzzing around us. The Bradley Method was definitely a fit for my wife and I, and we implemented everything we learned during the natural birth of our son."
