Thank you so much Melanie.  You naturally do what you do.... and we know it really takes something to not just teach the class, but to put your whole heart into it .... and more.

Gratefully Holly and Nolin

Since this was our 1st pregnancy, we were both very unsure of the upcoming events. After our time with Melanie I felt ready and confident to give birth naturally. She really helped us understand the whole process and what to expect with each step. When labor finally started we pulled out our notes from our class and followed with confidence. We did a lot of walking and moving to keep things progressing at a nice rate. We met our midwife and doula at the birth centre when I was 7 cm. Because of our knowledge, Andrew and I were able to work through the labor together with them monitoring us until it was time to deliver. It was such a wonderful experience and we are very thankful for our knowledge going into this great adventure. Thank you Melanie so much for your class.

Andrew & Christine

After taking the Bradley classes we have never felt more confident, prepared or excited for the upcoming birth of our first baby.  Our classes have taught us an abundant of information but really opened our eyes to understand that we have choices – choices that do not have to be routine.  We would definitely recommend these classes.

Melissa and Jack

I was apprehensive about taking this course, as I thought "babies are born every second, the doctors need to know what to do, not you!!", but I took it anyway for piece of mind, and am SO glad I did. Every birth experience is unique, mine was unlike any of my family or friends, but I was never frightened as the Bradley course went over all different scenarios so I knew exactly what was happening and why. The end result was I knew exactly when to go to the hospital (never felt the disappointment of being sent home for false labor) my ride to the hospital was exciting, yet calm and to top it off I had a natural birth. I recommend this course, knowledge is your greatest tool and it was also a fun night out.
