“God schedules a birthday, not man.”
Robert A. Bradley, Husband-Coached Childbirth: The Bradley Method of Natural Childbirth
“We repeatedly tell patients we are not in a hurry; there are no trains to catch and we don't care when the baby comes, only how! A doctor who is in a hurry does not belong in the field of obstetrics. As my chief pointed out, 'An obstetrician should have a big rear end and the good sense to sit calmly thereupon and let nature take its course.”
Robert A. Bradley, Husband-Coached Childbirth: The Bradley Method of Natural Childbirth
“...that the husband should be the one in constant attendance. Because of his love relationship with his wife, he is far more capable of achieving cooperation and helping her self-control than any attending doctor.”
Robert A. Bradley, Husband-Coached Childbirth: The Bradley Method of Natural Childbirth
“In the 1940s women were changing from home to hospital where they gave birth alone and thus birth became a mystery to the next generation.”
Robert A. Bradley, Husband-Coached Childbirth: The Bradley Method of Natural Childbirth
“One such father, decades ago now, John Quinn, a student at Humboldt State College in Arcata, California, made newspaper headlines when he chained himself to his laboring wife in order to foil the hospital ban on his presence. His explanation is a classical example of the increased awareness of the younger generation: "I love my wife. I feel it's my moral right as a husband and father to be there.”
