I have no interest in tearing down The Bradley Method (TM), but simply, things need to be updated. I must admit, I longed for updated videos, workbooks, and handouts, just like my students. My class evolved over the years into something that was uniquely my own. Frankly, it was time to leave and write my own curriculum.
I am incredibly blessed with a team of women to work with, each having a unique skill-set and having an appreciation for each others' strengths. We have created a new childbirth education program called Birth Boot Camp. It includes online classes and also live, instructor-led classes. I'm dying to tell you all about it:
First, the online classes are what inspired the program in the beginning. I hired a professional videographer, Ceci of Ceci-Jane Photography (you've all seen her birth videos) to record and edit my newly written curriculum. My live classes are peppered with birth stories that illustrate my points on various topics. Instead of me telling the stories, you'll hear from the couples themselves, as it's all edited into the classes. We also interviewed several professionals on various topics, including chiropractic care, doulas, massage therapy, fitness, and you'll hear from several midwives throughout the 10-week series. It's childbirth education -- documentary-style! These professionals, and many more, have contributed to the completeness of the Birth Boot Camp curriculum.
I roped in some pretty great people to help me, including someone you might recognize. Sarah Clark, author of Mama Birth, has been an integral part of the program. In fact, she even wrote all the relaxation exercises! She will be at the workshops, teaching new instructors tips and games for their classes. Our Board is diverse and well- rounded.
Oh yeah! And we have current birth videos!
For more information, check out the Class Descriptions to find out more about what Birth Boot Camp teaches. We are running an introductory offer until May 1 (Tim McGraw's birthday) of $200 for the online classes.
Currently, live classes are being booked in CA, OK, and TX. Check with your instructor on her prices.
