Bradley Method mentor & doula

A little about myself...

I have been teaching Bradley® classes since 2002 here in Sarasota. I am certified as a doula through The Bradley Method®. Since 2004, I have been offering doula services for home, hospital, & birth center births. 

 I was introduced to The Bradley Method® when we found out we were pregnant with our first child.  I knew that teaching this class was my next endeavor.

We have three beautiful "Bradley babies": Audrey, Sarah, and Michael. Audrey and Sarah were born in Sarasota Memorial Hospital and Michael Joseph at home.  All of my prenatal visits & births were attended to by midwives. All my babies were born without the use of medication for pain or invasive procedures.  All were 2 weeks "late", so we had to learn how to approach that situation.  No complications, no episiotomy, only minimal tears that did not need stitching.  Needless to say, I am very blessed.

These classes are excellent preparation for any birthplace choice. I have great experiences to offer from attending 140 births in hospitals, birth centers, and home.


Family is everything

 Why I believe in The Bradley Method®:

-I believe in parental responsibility for their choice in practitioners and educating themselves

-I believe in the right to informed consent 

-I believe the father is an integral part of the birth team   

-I believe pregnancy and every part of labor & delivery and prepares you & transforms you into family

-Most of all, I believe in women knowing how to give birth; teaching women to trust in their bodies, and to take care of themselves and their growing child.

You will grow and change because of this experience.

I am grateful to be in the expectant couple's life during this very special time! 


Giving birth can be the most empowering experience of a lifetime, an initiation into a new dimension of mind-body awareness

Women are only limited by what we think they cannot do

~Laura Meyer

The woman about to become a mother, or with her newborn infant upon her bosom, should be the  object of trembling care & sympathy wherever she bears her tender burden or stretches her

aching limbs

-Oliver Wendell Holmes
