Bradley Method Birth Classes (VD region)??

Hi, I am wondering if anyone knows of a place that offers bradley method (or similar) birth classes? Ideally I'd like to stick close to home (Lausanne) but I'd be willing to travel up to an hour or so if there was a class to be found.

thanks!

I'm not familiar with the Bradley method but sounds like it does have some things in common with hypnobirthing which there courses on in Switzerland: http://www.hypnobirthing.ch/index_e.html is one example or for a list of worldwide practitioners look on http://www.hypnobirthing.com/findapract.htm

It's not as wacky as it sounds, I found it very helpful for having my first baby last month, send me a pm if you want to know more!

I have no clue about the Bradley Method, but there is a website of midwifes (sagefemmes) for Canton Vaud. Perhaps there is something there about their methods, otherwise, there is a listing of midwifes, so probably best to contact one.

Thanks, I'll have a look at the website and see what I find. Ordered some books anyhow so might wait to see if I find those good enough for me.

Thanks! I am in contact with two midwifes, still deciding on whether I will go with a birthing center or the CHUV, and that will dictate which midwife I continue with and take any course with. But I was looking to see if there was a specific course for the bradley method.

either way it's fine. I know many people don't even find birthing classes all that useful.... but thought it might be a nice way to get my SO involved!
