I know it's really late in the game, as I am 24 weeks pg tomorrow, but we've just switched to homebirth : , and my dr has highly recommended the Bradley classes as opposed to a doula for our delivery.

I have mixed feelings about a doula, and was interested in the bradley classes before, so I am leaning towards the Bradley. However, our biggest problem is our DD. We don't have family in the area, and we don't leave her with people very often. Our dr seemed to think that the bradley classes would be open to a toddler, but that seems unlikely to me...

Anyway, does anybody have an instructor that you would like to recommend? And do you know if the class is open to children?

TIA!!

I highly recommend Chanda Szczeblowski, 773.428.7572. She teaches in Oak Park--don't know when her next class starts, however with the holidays and all.

I was going to recommend the same.

She emailed me back, unfortunately her classes don't start until Jan. DH and I have ordered the books, and are basically doing a homestudy. Not ideal, I know, but being this is our 2nd, we really felt like the full 12 week course was overkill anyway.
