Private Childbirth Preparation

Private Bradley Method Series

- Is your schedule unpredictable or changeable, making a group series impossible to attend?

- Do you have less time than 12 weeks?

- Do you have special circumstances that need to be taken into consideration?

- Maybe you prefer working one-on-one rather than in a group situation? 

Whatever your circumstances and needs, you and your baby benefit from getting the support and knowledge you need so you are ready for the immense life changes that are happening. Taking care of yourself in the last part of your pregnancy, making sure you and your partner (or other support person) are prepared for your upcoming birth and knowing key information about breastfeeding as well as postpartum needs and life changes is essential for a smoother transition to new family life.

I can work with you privately to help you be ready for your labor & birth and to have a smoother transition to your new family life. I work privately in person, via Zoom/online or in hybrid formats depending on your needs and situation.

How do private Bradley Method® classes work?

You can take a private series all online or a hybrid combination of online and in-person. I often combine recorded videos of recent live group classes (watched in your own time before we meet) with one-on-one LIVE Zoom OR in-person sessions for Q&A, all physical labor coaching & training as well as other specific topics that need to be covered. Combining recorded class videos with one-on-one time together allows for increased flexibility and makes a private course more affordable without cutting out essential information and preparation.

Some possible private course options are detailed below. Private classes can be worked around your needs and the options listed are suggested as ideal if you are looking for a private Bradley Method series.

 

Any private childbirth series can be flexible to work with your situation; the amount of time you have to prepare, your schedule, your needs as well as other factors are all taken into consideration when I set up a schedule of classes for you.

 

If you live in the Los Angeles area and want all sessions in person, contact me and I can create a unique schedule that works for your needs.
