“Instead of distracting yourself from the birth process… you are fully mindful and wholly engaged during Bradley’s method of natural childbirth.”—Natural Life magazine

“Robert Bradley put power in patients’ hands, reducing the number of Caesarean sections and episiotomies he performed and playing up natural ways of making childbirth less painful.”—Slate
“The Bradley Method’s simple objective, through relaxation, breathing, and visualization, is a birth free of the interventions frequently offered to women in the different stages of childbirth: fetal monitors, drug-induced labor, anesthesia, episiotomy, and Caesarean section. [Its] other defining feature, the husband’s active participation in the delivery, is critical to this overall goal of an intervention-free birth.”—Mothering magazine

“I highly recommend not only the Bradley method, but specifically Susan McCutcheon’s book to all my pregnant patients regardless of whether their goal is a natural childbirth. Susan does a great job putting her years of experience and research into a readable evidenced based guide to prepare women and their coaches for pregnancy, labor, and birth. I am grateful for the way this book expanded my knowledge and empowered me and my wife for our births.”—Dr. Stephen Yip, D.O.
