Birth Classes

Bella Rose Birth Services offers childbirth classes that suit your needs and desires. Together, we cover the basics of what to expect as well as relaxation techniques, comfort measures, the postpartum period, and much more. Class information is up-to-date and taught in a manner that empowers the birthing family to make informed decisions about their care, with confidence. We discuss common interventions and medicinal pain relief but focus on the benefits of allowing birth to progress in the most uninhibited, physiologic manner as possible, highlighting natural ways of coping with the trials of labor and birth. At the end of our time together you will be equipped with the tools, support, and knowledge that you need to create your most positive birth experience. These classes are hands on and a lot of fun!


Group Classes – The Bradley Method®

The Bradley Method® of Natural Childbirth focuses on education, exercise, nutrition, relaxation, and active partner involvement in order to prepare you and your partner for the life-altering and joyous experience that is childbirth.

Classes are kept under 8 couples to ensure personal attention and promote comfortable and meaningful practice and discussion. These classes meet once a week, for about 2 hours over the course of 10 weeks.

Baltimore area group Bradley Method® birth classes are held at a beautiful, serene, and fully-equipped yoga studio in Reisterstown, Maryland. Frederick area group classes are held at Riverside Midwifery in Buckeystown.

Private Lessons

Private birth classes are taught in the comfort of your home and individualized to meet your specific needs. Depending on your desires, private lessons meet for 4-6 consecutive weeks or we can meet for a 4-hour intensive session.
