The Bradley Method of Natural Childbirth

The Bradley Method of Natural Childbirth

For The Best Birth Possible!


Welcome to the Bradley Method!  My name's Mimi Desjarlais and I love teaching couples how they can have natural and joyful births. This method is the most comprehensive preparation available, and it shows in the results: the healthiest Moms and babies, and the lowest rate of medicated births!

The Bradley Method® teaches you how to make the best decisions for yourself and your baby.  There are appropriate times for drugs during some labors;  once you know what the benefits and risks are, then you understand your choices and have true "informed consent"...or refusal.  

But how do you know when to turn to medications and when to try something else?  Ahh, that's why you need to come to class!

The Bradley Method teaches you many ways to handle labor.  Most Bradley® students don't need drugs because they've learned so many other ways to cope with labor. 65% of my students give birth without medications.

R.I.'s C-section rate is 32%, but my students' rate is only 18%!
My classes help protect you from unnecessary interventions, which too often lead to surgical birth.

Some births are tough, some easier, and as many as 1 in 5 can be orgasmic.  Really; it is possible!  Watch this:  https://youtu.be/jxB9mnKYr4M

Class  
The Bradley Method series meets each week for 12 weeks, usually from 5:30-7:30 or 8p.m.
If you just missed the beginning of a new series, you might still be able to join the class;  call me (401-826-2669). 
Saturdays:   Sept. 9, December 9
Mondays:   July 24, November 6


When to start Classes
Start classes about 14-16 weeks before your estimated due date.   
Birth is a major physical event, and mother and partner need time to practice the techniques to handle labor well. 

The key to your best birth is relaxation, and you'll learn many techniques in my classes.
Your body was made to birth naturally, and when you discover how powerfully Mother Nature is on your side, your courage and confidence will soar!
