Had anyone used this method of childbirth before?  I am very interested in it. . i have seen it work but we don't have an instructor around here any longer so i was looking for moms to talk to that had used this method before.

I read the book and took the class. I really got a lot out of the classes. They covered so much and kept hubby involved. I ended up not using most of the pain managament techniques (breathing, masage, imagery) during the actual labor, but the nutraition and excercise info was priceless. Hubby actually paid attention and learned a great deal about the birthing process, which really surprised me because he didn't seem all that interested in the begining.

I would recomend Bradley to any new mom looking for a natural birth. It has gotten my through 2 amazing births and 1 more to come.

Since you don't have an instructor near by, could you just get the workbook?

i have an old workbook from the 90's that a friend used with her 4 kids.  I know it works very well I have seen her do it before.   I can't find one around here that's new..  Its not big in this area & the book stores didn't have them.   This is my first but my husband has been thru this with all 4 of my step kids so he's not too new to the whole birthing process.  Which is very nice!   The workbook is very informative I just would like to take a class.  Unfortunatly its not offered here due to the instructor moving shortly after the tornado came thru.  Thank you everyone for your replies.
