What Have Students Said About Class?

"I absolutely loved this class and was so glad my husband and I took it. The gradual teachings of the class over 11 weeks really helped all the information sink in. Compared to other new mom's (non bradley moms) I have compared birth stories with I feel like we were so much more prepared and educated on the whole process. I attribute my preparedness to the bradley classes we took."

"As a soon-to-be father, one can easily say that I was apprehensive to the idea of taking classes on natural birth, having been so accustomed to the rumor mill of medicated births. Doing what any supportive husband should do, I agreed to participate in a 12-week class covering The Bradley Method which was taught by Bethany Bagnell. I won't go in to the finer details of things but I learned so much more than I expected, all in a comfortable environment. Do your future child a favor and learn about what you and your wife can do to support a healthy pregnancy."

"My husband and I had taken the Bradley class in another state for our first child several years prior and were planning for another unmedicated natural, hospital delivery. Bethany's class was a great refresher for us and helped boost our confidence and connection in preparation for our son's birth. Bethany's extensive knowledge and calming presence was what swayed our decision to have a doula at this birth. Bethany was a perfect addition to our "baby team"."
