The Bradley Method®
"Ellen's Bradley Method® class taught us everything we needed to know for a healthy pregnancy and a joyful, drug-free birth. We couldn't have achieved the 'natural' birth we desired without the extensive knowledge and preparation that the Bradley class provided. We are thankful that we found Ellen's class!" Johanna and Guillaume Miralles
"I would highly recommend the Bradley Method® class taught by Ellen. She is so knowledgeable when it comes to pregnancy, birth, and postpartum /baby care. I think all expecting parents could benefit from this class. Even though my education is in health care I learned so much from this class as did my husband. The other people I took this class with and I get together WEEKLY with our children who are all around the same age! The experience of pregnancy and birth is so sacred and happens so few times in your life, make the most educated decisions you can and Ellen is there to guide you through it!" Jocelyn BSN, RN and mom of two.
"Ellen's Bradley Method class gave me the tools I needed to be an informed, empowered, and prepared mom heading into labor and delivery. It also gave my husband the knowledge and confidence to be the ultimate birth coach! Ellen is a true advocate for Dads, which is rare and a blessing!"
"Ever since I started researching natural labors I knew I wanted to take the Bradley Method. I chose to take the class through Ellen Huffmyer. My husband and I really enjoyed the class and we learned a lot from Ellen. She was always there no matter what we needed. Throughout the course she taught us valuable information about having a natural labor. Because of this class I had the determination to go all the way to 9.5 centimeters before I ended up getting an epidural for a stubborn cervical lip. Even though I have had two C-sections Ellen has been there for me each time and supported me to try again, and that means a lot to me."
"The decision to take a birthing class was a no-brainer, and once my husband and I met Ellen and the other couples in our class, we knew we picked the right one. Over a year later, we still keep in touch with other couples from the class, and will forever feel empowered in our labor and delivery experience. Ellen taught us to speak up for ourselves and how to be fully prepared for the unexpected. The book that went along with the class was great, but we would have never learned as much as we did if we hadn't gone to the class and interacted with Ellen and other couples. We are eager to put our Bradley knowledge to practice with baby #2 someday! Thanks, Ellen for all that you taught us!"
Heart to Heart Doula Service
"I could not have gone through the birth without Ellen's help throughout my pregnancy an during the birth. I learned enough to be prepared and not overwhelmed. And during the birth, she was my rock during the stormy moments. She helped me stay calm and trust in the process. She also helped my husband understand how to support me and be a part of the process. I felt absolutely wrapped in warm loving support" Matty Lau
"Ellen is an amazing doula! I think I have a unique perspective because my first birth did not include a doula, but I hired Ellen for my second and third births. I was in the same hospital and had the same OB/ GYN, but had much gentler births with her support. Ellen has an intuition that amazes me. I like to say that during my labor she knew when to lead the way, when to let me lead, and she held my hand the whole time. She and my husband acted as a team to encourage and relax me. The support of a doula like Ellen is priceless."
