A friend loaned me this student workbook for a course on natural childbirth. I thought it was very informative, although in the end I had to be induced, and then agreed to an epidural. I think the role of the coach is really crucial. My husband just didn't have the personality for it, but it did work for my friend and the book did give me perspective on what kind of labor and delivery I wanted to have, making me feel more empowered as a patient. It may be a little too pushy for some, leading you ...more

Recommends it for: Couples Attending A Bradley Method Class

We were given this workbook while attending our 12 week "Bradley Method" class. What an amazing class and workbook!!! We learned SO much during the last 12 weeks about pregnancy, labor, delivery and caring for a baby during the first month. I would totally recommend this method to anyone that wants to labor/birth in a hospital, birthing center or at home. The Bradley Method emphasizes the husband being the coach/doula, taking steps to avoid unnecessary medical interventions, being educated in yo ...more
Great tool for childbirth preparation!

This was the book Jeremy and I used most in the 12 week Bradley Natural Childbirth class we took in preparation for our first birthing experience in 2005. The workbook is invaluable and we plan to review it in detail in order to be ready for the new baby's arrival as well.
The workbook had a lot of helpful information that supplemented classes very well. I do wish there was a resource that lists all of the answers to the questions in the event that a question wasn't covered in class, or if someone were to miss it.
I loved the straight-forward facts and photos, the exercises (both physical and mental), and the emphasis on the husband-as-coach. Will definitely be keeping this around for reference.

Great book about how to relax during natural childbirth. I haven't been able to do it naturally yet, but it really helped me relax much more in childbirth.
Exceptional, but so was our childbirth class instructor! This class and textbook enabled my husband and I to have a natural home birth with our daughter! :)
This education for pregnant women was priceless. The breathing incorporates yoga type breathes with meditation concentration and relaxation.
If you can get your hands on this, very useful for approaching natural childbirth. Usually only available through a Bradley class.
So much valuable information! I was able to have a natural, medicine-free and intervention-free childbirth because of the Bradley Method!

Love the method, loved our classes (taken the course twice). The workbook needs some serious updating, though.
Haven't given birth yet (to our second). I'm reserving final coo nets on the book until it's been put to the test.
nothing really wrong with the workbook, I just didn't use it much... it was required for my Bradley class.
as we get reading for baby #2's arrival I'm re-reading this
