What People Are Saying

We took Justine‘s class earlier this year. This was our 3rd baby and 3rd time taking a Bradley class. Justine did a fantastic job of teaching the overall Bradley content and helping us prepare for the birth of our sweet baby girl. We especially appreciated that she included additional and updated information on evidence based birth studies. Aside from being a fantastic teacher, Justine also went above and beyond answering any questions we had and helping us connect with local resources. We could not be happier with our experience!!!

We took Justine’s class amid all the COVID-19 crazy and let me tell you, it didn’t slow her down one bit. Each class was efficient and informative! I enjoyed it more than the first time I took a Bradley Method class with another instructor during my first pregnancy and I feel like Justine’s iteration was an excellent use of my time! I loved how engaged she helped all the moms and couples be during our virtual sessions and I HIGHLY recommend taking Justine’s class as part of your pregnancy journey — whether it’s your first time or fourth!

The Bradley Method

12 Week Series

Getting ready for birth takes time, it is like an athletic event. Similar to running a marathon, it is wise to get in shape physically, mentally, and emotionally before making the “run.” The Bradley Method® will turn your birth partner into your coach and prepare the two of you for the biggest event of your lives.

What is the difference between The Bradley Method® and other types of childbirth classes? The Bradley Method® is the most established and in-depth childbirth series that fully prepares you for birth and beyond. This method was developed by a medical doctor in the 1950's, when fathers weren't allowed in the birthing room. Dr. Bradley was a pioneer in getting fathers in the birthing room to assist their wives through labor and birth. Classes stress the importance of healthy baby, healthy mother, and healthy families. We attract families willing to take the responsibility needed for preparation and birth.

 

Classes advocate and teach:

  • women to "tune in" and trust in their bodies

  • active participation of the coach, partner, or other support person

  • proper nutrition to remain low risk and healthy

  • exercises to prepare the body for birth and promote a speedy recovery

  • complete relaxation and natural breathing to manage contractions

  • positive communication between couples and their birth team

  • immediate and regular contact between mom and baby, including breastfeeding

  • parental responsibility during pregnancy and birth and the importance of being informed consumers

  • to trust in the natural process of birth
