2I am a natural childbirth educator through The Bradley Method®, 8 week series to teach nutrition, exercise, the coach's role, stages of labor, postpartum, breastfeeding, etc. http://www.bradleybirth.com/ferncompton For more information, please contact me. Snacks will be provided; feel welcome to bring your dinner.
Our classes are held outside of our home at a local midwifery, in Manassas, and a birth service center, in Chantilly. These are comfortable atmospheres with carpeting, as well as, a kitchenette. Light snacks will be provided. You are welcome to bring your dinner as well. Group classes are held in Manassas and Chantilly while private classes can be held in your home. We learn about exercises, nutrition, pregnancy, giving birth, newborn care, nursing, birth planning, and how to be a great coach through reading, games, DVDs, and hands on practice.
