Supporting mothers and families who are laboring to love their child during pregnancy, labor, and life together.
Our names are Josh and Justine Cain. We’ve been married for 9 years and live in Jacksonville, AL. We have three children. Our oldest is 7 years old and it was during her pregnancy that we were introduced to the Bradley Method®. Our second child is 5 years old and his birth was proof to us that the Bradley Method® can apply to a variety of situations. I gave birth to both children in Charleston, SC under the care of experienced and loving midwives. Now we live in Northeast Alabama where natural birth is becoming more welcomed thanks to the hard work of so many dedicated people in the community. Josh and I were pleased to give birth to our 3rd child at a local hospital under the care of a remarkable physician. Thus far, the Bradley Method® has prepared and guided us in all of our three births. It’s our honor to be the first Bradley Method® instructors in the Northeast region of Alabama and to, hopefully, be an asset to our community as more women and couples are gaining interest in giving birth naturally and being proactive, informed consumers of their medical services.
A healthy mother and baby are foremost in our goals. Pregnancy and labor are complex and often prove to be nuanced with each child. We strive to provide evidence-based information, coupled with personal experience for each of our students. As well, we work to prepare every mother and coach physically, emotionally, and mentally for delivery and postpartum. As part of this process, we want to enable our students to make informed decisions and encourage them to have respectful and proactive interactions with their medical team. All of this because we believe you should have the opportunity to experience birth as you so desire.
Listen to what others are saying about our services.
"Justine and Josh were a sweet blessing to my husband and I. Even though this was our second child, it was so beneficial for us to walk through this class together. It gave us the committed weekly time to prepare our hearts and minds for the labor and delivery process, that I think, if we had not made that commitment, we would not have been nearly as prepared. We are very thankful for the work the Cains are doing for families in our community! "

"I am a mother of three and with my last child I decided to take the Bradley Method class because I wanted to have a natural experience. Having two kids before this class I thought I was already gonna know everything there was to know about child birth but boy was I wrong! This class has taught me so much and help me prepare for my first natural child birth! I learned something new each time! If you are searching for different methods to do during labor?…you can’t go wrong with the Bradley Method! "

"After having 2 unpleasant birth experiences that ended in c-sections, the 3rd time around I determined to try for a vba2c, and better birth experience all around. Taking the Bradley method classes helped give me the knowledge and confidence I needed to do that. Having my husband prepared and ready to coach was also a huge help! I loved that the class was focused on us both. I achieved my desire of a vbac and natural delivery, and the Bradley Method was a big part of that. I highly recommend these classes, and our wonderful teachers, Justine and her husband Josh. We loved our experience with them! "

"Bradley classes helped so much in our all natural birthing experience. Bradley classes prepared us for what to expect and how to handle the pain through labor. We are so thankful for these classes and our experience was amazing. For us, being able to switch positions during labor was key to success. Remaining active and focused on breathing exercises helped push our way through labor. We focused on Bradley’s teaching of one contraction at a time and mentally I think that’s what got her through. We couldn’t have made it through this without the Bradley method and the support from our Bradley coaches. "

"...it had always been my plan to go all natural... Through the Bradley method [my coach and I] were educated on everything to expect during the labor and delivery process as well as multiple ways to help cope with the pain of childbirth... at the hospital we used all the things the Bradley method had taught us to get me through labor to the pushing stage. “One contraction at a time” became my mantra. We were there around 4 hours and my son arrived. Thanks to the Bradley method I was able to follow through with my birth plan. "

"Justine was very informative and catered a “crash course” to my specific needs and questions. We went through a lot of material, and it was so helpful that she had knowledge of the local hospital and knew several of the doctors. I would definitely recommend her classes to new moms and I will be taking it again if I have another baby!! "

"The time that my husband and I invested in this class was worth every minute! Not only did we gain a wealth of knowledge about pregnancy, labor, and birth, but we both gained tremendous confidence in my ability to labor drug-free and his ability to coach me through it. Though I am one of the low percentage of Bradley students who, unfortunately, ended up having an emergency C-section, I would still choose to take the course even if I could have known what my outcome would be, and I plan to use what I've learned to help me achieve a successful VBAC in the future. Though the material itself is valuable, it's not nearly as effective without great instructors, and Justine and Josh are the best! They are kind, friendly,and funny, and my husband and I consider them friends. We looked forward to class every week because we had a lot of fun while learning so much. This was a great time in our lives! "

"Our goal was an entirely unmedicated birth and because of his coaching and our preparation and acknowledgement of what was going on with my body and our babygirl we were able to achieve our goal. We could not have had the birth we did without Justine. This was my first birth and because of her and her sweet husband and the Bradley classes we will always be prepared to achieve our goal Lord willing. "

"After planning and expecting a natural birth, we resulted in having an unplanned, emergency c-section. The Bradley classes with Justine and Josh definitely prepared my wife and me for what we went through- even enduring an unplanned caesarean. The skills and knowledge we acquired through the Bradley course were invaluable, even though we did not have the natural birth we anticipated. The Bradley method is an excellent technique, and Justine and Josh are amazing instructors! "
