This technique focuses on teaching you and your coach different labor positions and what they mean for labor and delivery. You and your coach also learn pushing positions that are most effective.

Focusing on other distractions can help you cope with the pain.

Developed in the 1940s by a Doctor named Robert Bradley, clever name right? It focuses on the delivery with the least amount if any at all of drugs for pain ctontral. So any weak girls out there that demand an Epidural, Robert Bradley is not your man. But, maybe Bradley Cooper is, or so we hope! Ok, OK, back to Robert Bradley. This method focuses on exercise and good nutrition during the pregnancy, along side breathing techniques during the delivery and labor. It centers your nerves and promotes going to a calm place during those severe hours. I know my focus during my labor was my husbands hand and that book next to me to throw at the Nurse. Good luck with this one!

McMoyler Method
