Comprehensive Classes…


You will learn about how to stay low-risk during your pregnancy, all of the many options you will have during your labor and birth, what to expect during your labor, coping strategies, common interventions, and so much more! You will leave these classes feeling informed and confident for your birth!

” Denise’s classes are a MUST for every expecting couple!! You will finish the class with a confidence in yourself and your body’s ability to deliver naturally and even be almost excited for labor and delivery! If you are on the fence about taking the classes, even just a little bit, just do it! You won’t regret it!” ~Lynz, Rio

Interactive Classes…


Whether you retain information best through reading, listening, discussing, or doing, I’ve got you covered. You won’t just be sitting and listening to lectures each week. You will get to practice relaxation each week, watch videos, play games, and do lots of activities (with prizes at stake for those of you who are the competitive type)!


Small Class Size…


I limit my class size to six couples. This ensures that I can give you the attention and learning environment you deserve. It also gives you a chance to get to know the other couples well. Several past students have become great friends and still keep in touch with one another years later!

A Note About Partners…


Not sure if your partner will be on board with Bradley Method classes? I’m going to let you in on a little secret. I always ask everyone in class 1 why they’ve chosen to take Bradley Method classes. Almost always, dads respond with, “Because she made me come.” or “Because this is important to her.” Once in awhile, I get a very enthusiastic dad who had to be the one to convince mom. So don’t worry if he’s not on board (yet)!

“At first my husband was against taking these classes because of cost, the long drive (an hour each way), and the time commitment. Now he tells every guy whose wife is expecting that Bradley classes taught him what to do to help his wife and baby through pregnancy and labor.” ~Janice, Elroy


Don’t Forget About the Baby…


That’s right! You actually get a baby at the end of this! You’ll learn about breastfeeding, pumping (especially if you plan to return to work), caring for your newborn, taking care of yourself postpartum and easing into your new role as parents (or parents all over again if this isn’t your first birth).

Past students have traveled from all over Madison, Verona, Middleton, DeForest, Monona, Fitchburg, Hillpoint, Reedsburg, La Valle, Elroy, Portage, Oxford, Rio, Columbus, Sun Prairie, Sauk Prairie, Menomonee Falls, Cambridge, Lake Mills, and Stoughton.

*A $50 non-refundable depost is required to hold your space in a series. The remaining $245 is payble at the beginning of the series. This fee includes your student workbook, access to my lending library of books and videos, and phone/email support from me up until a couple weeks after your baby is born.

Thank you so much for the classes. I know I couldn’t have done it without them. If we didn’t have the knowledge of what was happening, things may have been very different. I remember thinking right after ‘well that wasn’t too bad, I could do that again.’” ~Amanda, Watertown
