Ellen Saj, Bradley® Method Childbirth Instructor
Ellen is a certified Bradley Method® educator in Rochester, MN and has had two beautiful natural births. She and her husband found The Bradley Method® when they were expecting their first baby. After taking the classes together, they had a homebirth and welcomed their son without any interventions. Ellen found birth be the most empowering and amazing experience of her life. Their second baby was born two years later, also naturally at home It was then that she knew she had to teach and help other expectant moms and dads have similar experiences.
The Bradley Method® teaches natural childbirth and views birth as a natural process. It is the belief that most women with proper education, preparation, and the help of a loving and supportive coach can be taught to give birth naturally. The Bradley Method® is a system of natural labor techniques in which a woman and her coach play an active part. It is a simple method of increasing self-awareness, teaching a woman how to deal with the stress of labor by tuning in to her own body. The Bradley Method® encourages mothers to trust their bodies using natural breathing, relaxation, nutrition, exercise, and education.
