I am a Bradley Method of Natural Childbirth educator. Within the Bradley Philosophy we teach you to be an informed birth consumer. While Natural Childbirth is what the safest way for your baby to be born and the manner in which most couples choose after taking the class, the class is about making an informed choice as well as giving you the skills to obtain an unmedicated birth.
The Association of Omaha Natural Childbirth Educators are working together to ensure that your 10 weeks of classes will help you be certain you understand and are adequately prepared for your birth. I realize this is a significant time commitment, however it is worth it. The class teaches nutrition and exercises to help you stay low risk as well as relaxation and other pain management techniques to use in labor. In addition to this the class empowers couples to understand normal birth and to be advocates for themselves.
The benefits of the Bradley Philosophy are endless. Students report shorter labors, avoid toxemia/pre-eclampsia, lower rates of birth complications and cesareans, and feel more connected to their labor partner.
According to The American Academy of Husband Coached Childbirth, 87% of vaginal births by couples trained with the Bradley method will be unmedicated. Please see Kristen and David's Official Bradley Method Teacher Website and Omaha Bradley Teachers for more information.
