Goals of the Bradley Method

The Bradley Method wants you and your baby to have the best, safest, and most rewarding birth experience possible. For that reason we endorse and teach the following ideals in class:

  1. Natural Childbirth

  2. Active participation of the husband as coach.

  3. Excellent nutrition, the foundation of a healthy pregnancy.

  4. Avoidance of drugs during pregnancy, birth, and breastfeeding unless absolutely necessary.

  5. Training:"Early-birth" classes followed by weekly classes starting in the 6th month, continuing until birth.

  6. Relaxation and NATURAL breathing.

  7. "Tuning-in" to your own body.

  8. Immediate and continuous contact with your new baby.

  9. Breastfeeding, beginning at birth.

  10. Consumerism and positive communications.

  11. Parents taking responsibility for the safety of the birth place, procedures, attendants, and emergency back-up.

  12. Parents prepared for unexpected situations such as emergency childbirth, and cesarean section.

Educated parents have the responsibility to make these choices themselves. They also need to seek personnel who have natural childbirth experience and who will support their choices.
