Home   About Me   My Classes   Why 12 Weeks?   Course Content

I teach my classes out of my in-home classroom in Beverly, MA. We are within walking distance from the commuter rail and have plenty of parking. My husband, Mike, will also join us occasionally, to share his insights and experiences. 

Ideally, it’s best to start your series during the second trimester, around the 5th month. Please feel free to contact me by phone or email with any questions. If you’re interested in taking classes, I ask for a small deposit to hold your space. Cost is $400 and includes the student workbook, access to my lending library of books and DVDs, and email and phone support unto perpetuity (birth is just the beginning!).

Why on earth would anyone want to take 10-12 weeks of birthing classes? The reasons are many, but my favorites include practice (yes, we do labor rehearsals), exercise (I will get you Kegeling--and explain WHY!), nutrition (it takes 3 months for your body to utilize any changes), and sharing information. In addition, because labor coaching is so important in The Bradley Method®, time is spent in each class learning and practicing coaching techniques. By thoroughly preparing the coach, he or she knows what to expect in labor and is therefore better able to facilitate a normal birth. We also cover so many topics! We spend time learning massage, positioning, coping strategies—and getting these topics into your body takes some time. Oh, and you get to know your classmates. I will encourage you to keep in touch with each other as you become parents. 

Classes held during holidays may be rescheduled based on student availability.
