Transcription: 
The Bradley Method helped me prepare for childbirth at home because it taught me about the birthing process, it taught me about the power of my body and how to deal with the potential pain of childbirth. I felt empowered by the classes because I learned that by relaxing I could actually control the pain. And my husband also took the classes with me so he learned how to best support me. And basically, if you do choose a hospital birth, they teach you how to possible prevent the interventions that might come, such as a C-section or medications. Also I learned how to prepare a birth plan in the event that I had to be transported to a hospital, and that really helps.
