The Bradley Method Classes with Christina Pitts, AAHCC

I discovered my passion for natural childbirth when I became pregnant in 2008. In my heart I just knew that birth was an event to be celebrated, not feared, and that an unmedicated birth was the right choice for our growing family. After much research, we decided to take a class in The Bradley Method® to prepare ourselves. During the series, we realized that our desire for a natural birth would be better respected under the care of a licensed midwife. So at 30 weeks into the pregnancy, we changed healthcare providers and on Valentines Day, 2009, our beautiful daughter came into the world in the peace and quiet of our own home. And we just recently experienced another successful Bradley Birth when we welcomed our son into the world on June 20 of this year.

My own empowering birth experiences have motivated me to spread the news about the well kept secret of natural childbirth and empower other parents. I consider it a privilege and an honor to be a part of such a life changing event and I look forward to assisting you on your journey toward achieving your perfect birth.
