Planning and learning about childbirth is a great way to make sure you’re entering your labor with confidence and ease. Let’s be honest, “just winging it” may work for a spur of the moment afternoon adventure, but for labor it’s helpful to have done a little pre-journey-planning! Preparing your body, soul and mind to deliver… Continue reading
Giving birth to your baby is something you will never forget. Research has even been done to support this. Doulas like me can heighten this experience by relieving stresses caused by labor, and encouraging dad or partner to play an active role in this experience (if they want to of course). Birth is a rite of passage in a… Continue reading
Is my baby getting enough food? How often should my baby pee and poop? Should I wake my baby to eat? Does this cord stump look okay? When will I have time to clean my house? When will I find time to feed myself? Or even take a shower?! I only sleep in 2-3 hour increments and… Continue reading
First off, I’d like to say I had the most amazing birth and I feel it had a lot to do with everything Corryn did for my husband and I. I took Corryn and James’ birthing class and let me tell you it is worth it! She covered everything I could possibly think of and more. During their class I knew exactly what to do to have a healthy pregnancy and after I felt very confident that I had the knowledge to make the best decisions for me and my baby during my birth. Corryn was so comforting and she made it clear she loves to help, I just had to have her as my doula. Let me tell you I was not disappointed! She was such an encouragement to me and helped remind me and my husband what to do during the different stages of birth. With James and Corryn’s birthing class and Corryn’s help as my doula. my stress level was nonexistent. I was able to completely enjoy my birthing experience. I would highly recommend their birthing class and Corryn as a doula! I will have her at all my births!
I had such an amazing experience in James and Corryn’s Bradley Method class. I took the class because I am the type of person who needs to know as much information as possible about a situation, especially when I am terrified, and after doing research the Bradley Method seemed to provide that. I was so nervous about giving birth I originally wanted to have a scheduled C-section. James and Corryn created nothing but an inclusive and positive environment for us throughout the class. By the end, not only had I changed my mind about the type of birth I wanted to experience but I felt completely at ease and in charge of the birthing process. We walked into the hospital with complete confidence and knew exactly what to expect at every stage of the process. I am happy that I took the class because I was able to have an un-medicated birth and my wife was a great coach throughout the birth because of what we learned in the class. Corryn was always available to answer questions, even after the class had ended and I had given birth, which wasn’t a benefit I expected to have. As a bonus, we also met other couples in the class that I can now call friends and we still communicate with each other to this day! Give yourself the gift of having enough knowledge to make informed decisions about your child birth experience by taking the Bradley Method class with James and Corryn.
