The Back Cover

The Bradley Method, used and praised by women for more than thirty years, prepares couples for drug- and surgery-free natural childbirth. Many births today are still medicated, forceped, or caesarean - not natural. The Bradley Method changes all that for couples who wish to give birth in a relaxed, warm, loving environment, that maximizes the joy of the birth experience - and puts the mother in control. Certified childbirth educator Susan McCutcheon, one of Dr. Bradley's first students, now makes this natural approach to childbirth more accessible than ever to American women. You will learn:

  • The crucial differences between The Bradley Method and Lamaze - and why you may end up medicated with the latter
  • How to choose a doctor who will respect your wishes for natural childbirth
  • Exercises and nutrition to get your body ready for birthing
  • How to involve your partner as a birth coach and fully engaged participant
  • The truth about episiotomy, caesarean surgery, and other routine medical interventions that may pose a threat to your baby

Great book highly recommend
by MrsT on Apr 10, 2014

My sister constantly told me how much she learned from this book so I ordered my own copy and before and during my 1st pregnancy & natural midwife delivery I was so informed! With the pregnancy of my twin boys I re-read this book for the 100th time :) and felt so confident going through pregnancy and natural hospital delivery. It helped all my worries and concerns go away & helped me decide what kind of delivery I wanted. I highly encourage any parents to be to get this book hospital or home delivery, 1st or 10th baby you'll be so glad you did!

Great info

When I was pregnant with my second (in1980) we were stationed in Hawaii and I came into contact with Bradley's information and it made a difference in all of my births after that. I have recommended this information for years and it is nice to see it included here.

Bradley Method Really Works!
by Myra on Nov 8, 2012

After studying Lamaze childbirth, we had one very difficult labor which ended in a C section. Determined not to have such a difficult birth the next time, I read every childbirth book I could find and discovered The Bradley Method of Childbirth. We studied it over a period of about five months and really studied to learn the methods of relaxation it teaches. We have had two natural VBACs since then. This is not a learn-in-a-weekend method; it takes commitment to study and practice the methods, but it truly works. Relaxation greatly diminishes pain and made the natural births far easier than the one Lamaze birth which ended in a C Section. I recommend this book to every pregnant lady I know. * * * * * 5 Stars!

I stumbled upon your comments on The Bradley Method, I used this over 30 years ago.. I am so pleased to see it is still being practiced. Three healthy kids, all adults with kids, 10 grandkids later, I support it!

I recommend it!

From our Mailbox

Dear Shoshanna,
I am so excited that I hardly know where to begin. First of all, I want to thank you for sending us the complimentary food-grade glycerin for

We have been your customers for the last three or so years. Your service is always wonderful and shipping is quick. We appreciate the time and effort you put into educating those of us who wish to learn more about using herbs safely, especially for those of us who are oftentimes nursing and pregnant
or both. :-)

I have gained so much knowledge from your website, reviews, and the books that you sell. Thank you to your family from ours. We had dreamed of being able to take care of our family with herbs and when we had found you through your parents' website for NGJ ministry, it was an answer to prayer. Out of all our four children, we've only had one of them take antibiotics for just one little occasion. I didn't know then what I know now. I thank the Lord for making our pathway straight and helping us as we sought this information.

I wanted to let you know about our website work, especially the magazines because we are working on product reviews. I have directed many people your way for various books, herbs, and information.

I was also wanting to thank you for sending out the recent emails and tutorials on making tinctures. I have been told by mouth how to make them but didn't feel completely comfortable about tackling the feat myself (my husband made the bilberry one first) until I saw your DVD. For a busy homeschooling momma, this product is such a blessing. Thank you to all who produced it.

Please tell your mother I said, "Hello" and give her a big hug from me. I read her "Created to Be His Help Meet" years ago and have gone through the book at least four times since. It has allowed us to continue our honeymoon and sweet stage even to this day (almost eight years) and has allowed me to direct many women to it. I have been blessed with starting our marriage out right and further polishing it with that amazing book along with so many others from other Titus 2 women.

For His glory,
