Webster Technique and Family Chiropractic with Dr. Carla Gibson
Chiropractic eases the discomfort many women experience during pregnancy. The Webster Technique for optimal pelvis alignment is also used each visit to create the best possible birth position for babies in utero. As long as the pelvis is in a balanced state, the ligaments connected to the uterus maintain an equalized, supportive suspension for the uterus, giving the baby optimal room for growth and development. Blossom offers chiropractic for the entire family including prenatal, post-partum moms, babies and children. Our birth support team and lactation specialists can let you know if they think you or your child can benefit. You can learn more about Dr. Carla Gibson at Abundant Health Arizona.

Bradley Class from Frances
The Bradley Method® is a 12-week childbirth education class that focuses on preparing you for a natural, unmedicated birth, and on teaching your partner to be your trained labor coach. Each class has a specific topic, but throughout the series we discuss relaxation techniques to help reduce pain during labor, nutrition, exercise, and how your body works (and how to work with your body) during pregnancy and each stage of labor. We also discuss breastfeeding and the postpartum period.
Classes include hands-on practice and labor rehearsals in addition to instruction and video supplementation. These classes aim to give you the confidence and knowledge to trust your body and your baby to help you birth without medications or interventions.
Classes are held usually Thursday evenings at 6:30pm for about 2 – 2.5 hours per class. They are limited to 8 couples. They meet in the Wellness Building at Blossom Birth Center. The cost is $350 per couple, with a $50 deposit when you register to hold your spot, with the remaining balance due in the first class. We do not want cost to stand in the way of anyone taking the class, so we are more than happy to work out a payment plan with you if necessary.
