Childbirth Classes

I teach The Bradley Method® series with small class sizes to ensure personal attention along with an amazing guest speaker for the breastfeeding portion of the class.

We go over valuable information on pain versus sensation and minimizing fears, stages of labor, optimal fetal positioning, positions for labor and pushing, coaches role, birth plans, interventions, postpartum care, and breastfeeding and more!. We discuss nutrition for a healthy and beautiful baby as well as endurance for the birth. I teach exercises for pregnancy to aid in strengthening the mother for labor and helping her baby get in an optimal position for the birth process. Our relaxation focus for an unmedicated birth include: affirmations, physical touch relaxation, visualizations, and massage.

I am passionate about birth and the well being of the mother and my goal is to help couples have a healthy, joyful and positive birth experience. It would be an honor to be part of your lives during this amazing and exciting time.

Childbirth Classes: The Bradley Method

I teach The Bradley Method® series in North County San Diego Area

I am passionate about birth and the well being of the mother and my goal is to help couples have a healthy, joyful and positive birth experience.  It would be an honor to be part of your lives during this amazing and exciting time.

I am so excited for you to be welcoming your sweet little one into the world!!  Classes are designed to be small to ensure personal attention along with an amazing guest speaker for the breastfeeding portion of the class.

In my class I am a huge fan of the coach!  The coach will come away from my class feeling confident and equipped to help the mother through the course of labor and birth and beyond.  My couples tell me, at the class reunion, this strong bond created between the coach and the mother during the class and birth is one of the most treasured aspects they take away from the whole experience. 

Many women come to class fearful about the pain and unknown process of childbirth (I know I was before my first Bradley class!!).  In the first class, I share valuable information on pain versus sensation and minimizing fears, and by the end of my class series, mothers are empowered and have rediscovered their inner strength to be ready for this powerful experience of birth.

I love to use visuals and hands on teaching!!  During your classes you will learn stages of labor, positions for labor and pushing, creating a teamwork atmosphere with your care providers, interventions, what if’s, breastfeeding and more!  Our relaxation focus for an unmedicated birth includes: affirmations, physical touch relaxation, visualizations, massage, and backache comfort measures, and other helpful peaceful relaxation techniques for labor.

How does nutrition and exercise play a vital role in the birthing process?   You will learn nutrition for a healthy and beautiful baby as well as endurance for the birth.  I teach exercises for pregnancy to aid in strengthening the mother for labor and helping her baby get in an optimal position for the birth process.

About Me

Each of my birth experiences was different, just as different as all their personalities. And I love it!!  My experiences of birthing three children have given me this strength that never can be taken away.
How do you explain it?  Its a quiet strength and its beautiful and powerful. It made me stronger and it made our bond as a couple stronger.  It becomes part of you and this lost art of natural childbirth will be passed onto the couples I teach.


Our first baby was born at a hospital using The Bradley Method®, and we were so grateful for the depth of knowledge and preparation going into something we had never done before.  I remember those feelings!! Again, using The Bradley Method®, we were able to have two home births for our second and third child.  I had three very different positive natural labors for my three children in two very different places, and The Bradley Method® gave my husband and I confidence and hands-on skills that we hope to pass along to you and your coach.

We are delighted with our children’s natural births and hope to help other mothers along with their partner, husband, or other support person have a positive and fulfilling birth experience.

For our third child, my husband was deployed and returned home 9 days before she came!  Talk about cutting it close!!  Again I am so indebted to the education I received on natural childbirth as its given me the secrets to the lost art of natural birth and the wisdom to make the best choices for me and my baby.  And most important, the tools for my husband to support me every step of the way when circumstances don’t always go as planned.  (And the knowledge of how I needed to prepare myself and my stand by support team in case he couldn’t return in time.)
