    1 thought on “Husband-Coached Childbirth: The Bradley Method of Natural Childbirth

    1. First let me say that I believe in the Bradley method as a practice for birthing babies Erika and I took the course for our twins it proved to be a wonderful experience, and excellent training for vaginal birth at least we imagine it is since we are still waiting for our first vaginal birth Fingers crossed for this pregnancy.So I walked into my reading of Husband Coached Childbirth as a member of the team I didn t need to be convinced to play I just wanted to brush up on my skills, pick up my tr [...]

    2. I like the principles of the Bradley method, and this book does a decent job of explaining the basics, but I found many things off putting At times Bradley seemed a bit patronizing and the strict gender roles he describes don t mesh well with 21st century America as I know it Talk of God and the lower mammals may also be irritating to some There is a 5th edition out now that hopefully addresses some of these issues My biggest complaint, however, is that the book doesn t present the entire Bradle [...]

    3. I am thankful for the practical information that this book imparted I read the 3rd edition , giving me confidence that I can in fact tackle the upcoming task of delivering my next baby without medication, but that it it my responsibility to be educated about the process, and that my husband can and should have a active role than he did during the hospital birth of my first son I understand why people said that he was sexist and old fashioned, but not only was this book written 30 years and his [...]

    4. I m not sure what to say about this book The actual child birth method is good I am going to use it with this child However, in my opinion, Dr Bradley is kind of a nutter who is out of touch with reality, and has unreal views and expectations of people For example, he states that if you use his method your will be pleasant and happy throughout your pregnancy I don t care who you are and how amazing your method isI am a cranky, hormonal pregnant woman, and there is nothing you can do to change th [...]

    5. NOTE Definitely read the revised 5th edition instead of the previous 4th and 3rd , as from what I can see in other reviews the older editions are even antiquated in overall approach than this one THAT SAID, in spite of Dr Bradley s somewhat old fashioned approach to male female relations, this book is a must read for anyone who is interested in unmedicated, natural, holistic childbirth and pregnancy Dr Robert Bradley, pioneer of husband coached childbirth and proponent of the presence of father [...]

    6. This book was full of very interesting and helpful information hence the 4 star rating However, that might be a bit high, because other things about the book really bothered me He is so antagonistic toward those who use advocate medication of any kind during pregnancy, and even implies that mothers who use medication during their labor and delivery haven t earned the title of mother Blah, blah, blah I ve had three babies and used medication every time, and two of the three were fantastic experie [...]

    7. I read this as a companion to our Bradley classes Althought there is a lot of helpful information, the arrogant and fairly offensive way Bradley writes was frustrating Between his comments about hospital nurseries as concentration camps and that only those that arrive via natural birth can have real BIRTH days as opposed to delivery days , I began to discount the rest of his arguments A good editor would have gone a long way to making this a respectable resource.

    8. A day of school cancelled due to fog and freezing and what do I do Start on my Bradley training Snow Days sure aren t were they were 9 years ago Well, let s see how to rate review this thing As a method, the philosophy makes sense, the advice it has for assisting fathers is good, helpful, and there are tons of great little tidbits throughout, though mostly for the mother nutrition, exercises, things to expect, hints as ways to lay, pains to prepare for, and stories of the way things used to be a [...]

    9. Borrowed from the doula teaching my Bradley Method class I hardly have any time to read for fun any, planning for our first child to arrive, but I did enjoy this book which provides the background reasoning behind The Bradley Method of husband coach, natural childbirth It was very empowering The book is written to the husband, a term he explains could be used even for non male, non spouse coaches, so don t let the word husband turn you off if you are in a same sex relationship or unmarried Bradl [...]

    10. I basically skimmed this book, only really reading the chapters that interested me the actual Bradley method during labor and birth Dr Bradley cracks me up I realize his study of childbirth and the resulting methods were revolutionary for his time, but reading the book now he comes across as an old fashioned, arrogant, nut job It drove me crazy that he wrote the book with the husband as his audience So instead of giving helpful instructions to the woman who is actually birthing the offspring, he [...]

    11. This book is littered with religious ideology and read like a self help book After getting through the endless preaching and self aggrandizing about how great he is and how many practices he started you can find some good info in here Once you get to the part about labor I was able to learn some useful tidbits to help my wife during the labor process Most of the tips are standard practice at our hospital or any good modern hospital so I need not be concerns with them I am glad Dr Bradley helped [...]

    12. This book was amusing to read and provides historical context regarding husbands as co equal partners in the labor and delivery of their babies Author, Dr Bradley, described fathers being arrested in the 1970 s when they persisted on supporting their wives in the delivery room Unheard of nowadays The core beliefs of women having natural childbirth are important to understand in today s push for drugs and c sections However, I recommend reading a newer text with updated medical research, which pr [...]

    13. Great concept Very difficult in theory Especially when you have a labor that isn t like the labors described in this book Some very outdated info though as hospitals have progressed a lot since initial publication.

    14. Wow There is so much wrong with this book The general ideas principles of the Bradley method are fine What makes this book so absolutely awful is his condescending tone, not to mention his 1950s world view I hate the term natural childbirth If you push the baby out, it s natural What he was actually talking about is medicated vs unmediated I disliked his constant put down of anyone who has had or considers medication for the pain His bounteous descriptions of how joyful and exuberant mothers wer [...]

    15. What I expected from this book How to help my wife through the process of giving birthWhat I got mostly an infomercial for the Bradley Method of childbirth.I didn t really need to be convinced into this method since my wife and I are already aiming for natural birth barring any complications So this book could have been greatly condensed into a pamphlet Or maybe broken into two parts the why and the how Instead, you had to trudge through the why to find the nuggets of how I have found helpful st [...]

    16. There were a few strategies to help me cope with the birthing process, but in general I found Dr Bradley s tone to be sanctimonious and full of disdain for the common woman My husband and I read this book out loud together and there were several sections we had to skip because of the continuous condemnation we felt But there s one thing I ve discovered since becoming a mother everyone has an opinion and it s always a very strong one, whether or not you agree with them is your choice.

    17. I love the method, but the book could use some writing work There was a lot of unnecessary information, and a LOT of repetition that isn t necessary I recommend taking Bradley courses while pregnant, as it forces you to take time to practice relaxation and gives you the opportunity to ask questions.

    18. Despite my average rating, I would recommend this book to any mother who is considering natural childbirth I loved the information, but the author had a very strong opinion that his way was the only way He had a slightly condescending tone throughout the book But it was very interesting and was an easy book to read, unlike some informational books about labor and delivery.

    19. I am grateful to have read this book in helping my daughter prepare for natural childbirth Things went wonderfully I can t say enough about natural childbirth and how wonderful it is for mom and baby.

    20. This book, as well as the classes I took, were incredibly informative both from a scientific perspective and actual practical information Even though my labor and my daughter s birth went NOTHING like I planned, hoped or imagined, I felt fully competent and capable throughout the entire thing.

    21. I really enjoyed reading this book by Dr Bradley It was easy to read and understand It had lots of practical insights and humorous stories I appreciated his belief in God, and how he praised Him for the wonderful creation of our bodies.Dr Bradley s premise was built on his observations of animals He noticed that when you throw an animal in deep water that it doesn t usually drown it instinctively knows how to swim However, when you throw a human in deep water that hasn t been taught to swim, the [...]

    22. Dr Bradley was very innovative in changing the way America s looked at birth He believed that women were designed to birth babies and could do so naturally vaginally and unmedicated given the right training and education He also believed strongly that husband s should not only be present at births but have an active role in assisting the wife by helping her relax and coaching her through the birth because of the love and friendship they have I greatly enjoyed this book Learned a lot there are a [...]

    23. Bradley is one of the Big Names in natural childbirth I m glad I read this book, but I have to admit I have liked others better and found them useful If you re going to read a ton of birth books like I did, include this one, but if you re looking for one book that s functional and concise chose elsewhere.This has the basic outline of phases of labor and other basic information that most childbirth books include, as well as explanations of his philosophy and specific ideas, as well as few vague [...]

    24. Gotta take this book with a grain of salt Considering that it was written back in the 60 s, when society was much male dominated, helps a lot when considering where a lot of Bradley s views and attitudes come from That said, it is very progressive for its time, but perhaps not as relevant to today s society where it is expected that Dad will be in the labor delivery room What I took from it was the idea that in order to have a successful labor and delivery despite the annoying fact that constan [...]

    25. I wish my library carried the most current edition of Husband Coached Childbirth, because my impression of it based on the 4th was that the book is badly in need of revision and editing I read this book because it was recommended literature for the Bradley method childbirth class my husband and I are taking However, if I were undecided about pursuing natural childbirth, this book would not have done much to convince me that I should consider it My issues with the book are manifold Initially, I w [...]

    26. We are having a baby in June, and are taking Bradley childbirth classes, so I wanted to read information by Dr Bradley We have really been enjoying the classes, so I was prepared to really like the book as wellHowever, I was really not impressed with this book It was extremely repetitive some entire chapters seemed to just be other chapters rephrased For example, there were at least three different chapters in which the Bradley class exercises and their benefits were described and summarized No [...]

    27. I m not pregnant, but plan to be soon and am was considering Bradley classes I hear great things about them and figured I d start with the book to get a feel for it.And look, I think it s great that Dr Bradley pioneered this whole movement at a time when it wasn t uncommon for women to be unconscious for birth And I can give him a pass on a lot of the misogynistic elements of the book because of the time in which it was written But the overall vibe I got from the book is not coach your wife thr [...]

    28. Author s Note written after the fact I think my frustration at some people meetings at work spilled over into this review, so please take my negative comments with a grain of saltI think this is the most practical of the childbirth books I ve read thus far It s written to the husband coach, so it s got a different feel from most childbirth books He goes into a lot of detail about exactly what you should and shouldn t do and sometimes even a schedule to follow to prepare for childbirth, and usual [...]
