<p>Seeking knowledge from you BTDT.  I went to bradleybirth.com to find instructors in my area & it gives me a list, but at the bottom it says "<span class="Apple-style-span" style="line-height:20px;font-size:17px;">If you can't find a teacher in your area listed above, </span><span class="Apple-style-span" style="line-height:20px;font-size:17px;">click below to see a list of Provisionally Affiliated Instructors.<span class="Apple-style-span" style="line-height:16px;font-size:13px;">" with a <em>Provisional Affiliates</em> button.  So I click that & get more options, with some instructors actually closer to me... but I cannot for the life of me figure out the difference between an "affiliate" (the first list) and a "provisional affiliate".  I've looked all over the website for an explanation with no luck, but I guess I could be missing something because my head hasn't been on quite straight lately. =)  I want to assume that the affiliates are more recommended or better, since they give you that list first, but I just don't know.  Anyone have an idea what the difference is?</span></span></p>

<p>Hi mama-</p>
<p>So glad you're researching Bradley- my husband and I have prepared for both of our births with the method and our loved our in-class experience.  It is far more comprehensive (in content, "homework", and time spent in class) than most classes but totally worth it.  I believe provisionally affiliated means that the instructors have completed most of their training, however still need to fulfill the student teaching requirement, i.e. have not done the student teaching portion with an affiliated Bradley teacher?  I'll check with a friend who is also a Bradley teacher and post again to confirm!</p>

<p>Thanks!  I really wouldn't mind driving a few more miles for a more qualified instructor... just have to figure out if that's what it means. =)<br>
