Lindsey Goetz  AURORA, IL
I wasn't looking forward to the idea of just trying to "suffer through" labor and delivery, so I was thrilled when I read the book "Husband Coached Childbirth," which encourages a woman and her husband to work together throughout the pregnancy, labor, and delivery.


The way Dr. Bradley's book prepared both my husband and me for childbirth was incredible-- we both found it more helpful than any of our OB visits. We taught ourselves The Bradley Method using whatever resources we could get our hands on, and we gave birth to a healthy baby girl using The Bradley Method in a hospital where natural birth was an anomaly.

There is just one Bradley Instructor in the city where we currently live. I am passionate about educating couples about natural childbirth because of the impact it has made on my life. Women are told that giving birth is a terrifying, horrible experience, but I believe it doesn't have to be that way. The Bradley Method teaches women that giving birth can be an empowering experience that actually strengthens the bond between husband and wife.

I am ready to attend training in September to become a certified Bradley Method instructor, but I can't do this alone. With a new baby and a husband who just finished grad school, our spending money account is around zero. This total will cover the training required to become a Bradley Method instructor and help us educate couples about the birthing process. You can read our birth story here.
