“[Bradley classes] empower you to make the best educated decisions for yourself and your baby and make pregnancy and labor/deliver way less frightening! ”  Lacey, 1st time Mom, Natural birth

“We cannot express how grateful we were to find Amy’s classes. Nowadays, people seem to get nervous to take classes outside a hospital but but we are so glad we did! We learned so much, bonded with other couples and felt totally prepared for the delivery of our son. The classes gave us time to focus on our baby, our relationship and the amazing experience of pregnancy and childbirth, as well as provided us with an abundance of information and resources. Amy is a wealth of knowledge and we greatly appreciate the guidance and support she provided us throughout our journey.”  Ilona, 1st time Mom, natural birth, born in the caul.
” When I first got pregnant, I was nervous about giving birth. By the time I went into labor, I felt empowered after my Bradley childbirth class, finding my doula, taking prenatal yoga and my positive relationship with my midwife. My husband was with me for almost everything I did to prepare to give birth, and I never felt alone in the experience of my pregnancy and my labor. Giving birth to my son was a sacred space and even serene. Running long races also was good preparation for labor. Even though I didn’t know what a contraction was going to feel like, I had “trained” for the experience. I was empowered and I was ready and I was unafraid. Amy, thank you for being part of getting me ready!”  Amaris, 1st time Mom, Natural birth.

“I am so thankful for the Bradley classes we took with our sons.  It truly prepared us for a healthy pregnancy and a healthy birth.  We felt very prepared and knowledgeable regarding all aspects of birthing, especially our confidence in each other as a birthing team, and our ability to handle whatever came our way.  I can’t thank you enough for the guidance, information and support you have given us!  When the time is right, I’d love to become a Bradley Instructor and help others have a great experience.” – Heidi, 3rd time mom and Bradley student, 3 natural births.

“THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU !!!  I am a Bradley coach guru.  On Feb.13th little Serena was born naturally without pain medicine. It, needless to say, was an awesome experience, I cried like a baby. Without the classes there would have been no way for us to enjoy this experience the way we did.  I would have passed out for sure without all the information and videos we received.  On a serious note, there is nothing worse for a man then to sit still and not be able to help your family when in need.  We are fixers, that’s what we do.  These classes not only allowed me to feel a genuine part of the pregnancy and delivery, but also allowed me to help provide emotional support, ease labor pains and participate in the hands on delivery of our bundle of joy.” –Charles, 1st time Dad

“We are very grateful for what we learned in our Bradley classes. My husband was able to be a wonderful coach and a true partner during my labor and my daughter’s birth because of all he had been taught. The classes also taught me that rather than something to be feared and then endured, labor and birth are something to look forward to with joyful anticipation. I am so glad we were given all the resources we needed to have a healthy, joyful birth for our daughter.” – Tara, first time mom, natural birth

“We still think back and count our lucky stars that we found your class, which enabled us to have a totally natural birth for [our baby]. We have not yet encountered anyone who hasn’t said: ‘she’s such an alert baby!’. And we attribute that to the intervention free childbirth.” – Lisa, first time mom, natural birth

“We found this to be well worth our money. I was encouraged to research things further and became much more involved in the decision making. Our Midwife commented several times about how we worked so well as a team during labor and delivery. She was impressed with how we did.” – Eileen, first time mom, natural birth

“Thank you for not only offering Bradley classes – we couldn’t imagine going through this without them – but for doing so enthusiastically! We also appreciate the extra time you put in researching and pulling together information on cases such as ours. Thank you for being such a caring resource!” – Trish, first time mom, 2 natural vaginal breech births.

“We are grateful to you for all of your guidance in having a healthy child. I want you to know that [these classes] made such a difference in our lives in so many ways. I am considering becoming a Bradley instructor” – Julie, first time mom, occiput posterior baby, natural birth

“[We] want to thank you for all your help and support. [Our baby’s] Bradley birth was incredible, and we feel so fortunate we were able to take your class! I can’t thank you enough for going all out to provide me with the induction information and for giving us labor suggestions in the wee hours of the morning! You were wonderful! Thanks a million!” – Kim, first time mom, natural birth

“Thank you so much for all of your help – before, during, and after our Bradley class. I cannot imagine what our experience would have been like with out your help and guidance.” – Tracey, first time mom, natural birth

“When [my daughter] was born, it was like my life started.  When they placed her on my stomach, I said, ” Hello my baby girl” and she lifted her head and looked me straight in the eyes.  I couldn’t wait to tell you because I was amazed at how alert she was. ( just like you said!)  I was so happy and proud we were able to do it without medicine and I believe it benefited our baby as well.  Bradley techniques really work!!!  “ –Danielle, 1st time mom.

“Amy is a very kind person. She is extremely well informed, and takes her time to locate the facts and cite her work.  She doesn’t hesitate to go out of her way to help someone in any way, especially in the form of gaining new information. She is one of the best and most useful teachers we have ever had. Her efforts outside the classroom to support the healthy /natural birth community are but a small reflection of the dedication and love she has for the act and idea of healthy, natural births, and happy, healthy families” –– Joshua, 1st time Dad

“I’ve been reminiscing upon my last birth with [baby #4] and thinking about how much better it was because of the knowledge I gained from taking your classes those many years ago. I owe my babies’ life in part to you for beginning my education enough to know better [about choices offered for this birth]. So, thank you for that. For dedicating your life to educating and empowering mothers. For being so diligent with your knowledge and your own education so you can pass it onto others.”   Leandra, baby #4, Induced for medical reasons, after 3 previous natural births.

“First off your class was well worth it and thank you for all the pointers and tips. We had a 100% intervention free baby boy this morning at 2:14.. My wife was all that is woman, and did so amazing! Was such a great experience especially witnessing a baby born en caul… perfectly intact sac, it was crazy, he looked like a little mushroom cap coming out!” Andrew, 1st time Dad.
