The Bradley Method® teaches natural childbirth and views birth as a natural process. It is our belief that most people with proper education, preparation, and the help of a loving and supportive coach can be taught to give birth naturally.
It is a system of natural labor techniques in which a birthing person and coach play an active part. It is a simple method of increasing self-awareness, teaching a birthing person how to deal with the stress of labor by tuning in to their own body. The Bradley Method® encourages parents to trust their bodies using natural breathing, relaxation, nutrition, exercise, and education.
The kind of pregnancy, labor, and birth our children experience has a profound and lifelong effect on their health, including their mental, emotional, and physical health. The Bradley Method® attempts to give babies the best possible start in life by teaching how to have a natural pregnancy and a natural childbirth.
This ten-week series provides a thorough understanding of the process of giving birth naturally. We cover healthy pregnancy, stages of labor, writing a birth plan, unexpected situations including cesarean, breastfeeding, postpartum, and newborns. Families will learn a new relaxation technique each week as we practice comfort measures in this hands-on series. Please feel free to invite your doula or other labor support person if they would benefit from learning the The Bradley Method® in order to support you during labor and birth.
