Bradley Method

The Bradley Method© is a great method. This is the method that I used for my birth. These classes are based on the “father coached childbirth” idea. This form of childbirth education is based on the ideas and teachings of Robert A Bradley. This is a 12 week course taught by highly certified instructors. I highly recommend this Method.

Lamaze Method

The Lamaze Method of childbirth is based on controlling your pain with breathing techniques and imagery. It also prepares the new parent for baby care. This method does not take a hard stance on natural childbirth, but it does give information on medicated and non-medicated choices. As this is the most common class that new parents to through, this is somewhat controversial in the die hard natural childbirth fans. Some natural childbirth professionals state that you should breath as you feel your body needs and that forcing a pant or breathing that you are not naturally used to will not help you. I’ll leave this one up to you. You can make up your mind after reading some more information. As I always say, being educated is your best tool in managing your labor and what works best for you is the best way for you to go. Lamaze Childbirth.com
