I am a former Bradley teacher, and I've been eying the Brio site to inquire about training. I do not see any info for educators. Does anyone know why this is?
Brio Birth Classes anyone? - Page 2
Brio is in the news right now. They're pretty controversial here in Denver where they started. Thought I'd share the latest controversy.
What the heck?
But the notion that Bradley can do anything at all to shut down Brio because the cirriculum (i.e. the content of WHAT is taught) is the same is just absurd. Well, so long as they don't use the EXACT same text in their materials - which would be plagerism & illegal, so let's hope they're not that stupid twice & they write their own unique stuff.
Actually, there are tons of reasons why Bradley can take action against a group of former instructors trained in their techniques that market a similarly named, similarly themed, similarly run business promoting similar techniques. Their agreements with their instructors should make this clear but even if they don't have a written agreement in place, these Brio people are going to have a hard time. And not smart to use the same name.
Note: never taken classes from either group.
it is tragic that Dr. Bradley's method has been stolen and clothed in a new name. we are all in this to help women deliver naturally. but apparently, the leaders of the brio organization wanted to benefit more financially but didn't necessarily have a new product to offer; just an abridged carbon-copy of someone else's hard work. i highly recommend the Bradley Method. the success rate is amazing. and Bradley has been around since 1947. It works. and the people who teach Bradley are content with "just" helping moms.
