The Bradley Method of natural childbirth (also known as “husband-coached childbirth”) is a method of natural childbirth developed in 1947. The Bradley Method  is first of all an application termed “the six needs of the labouring woman”, most notably deep and complete relaxation and abdominal breathing, but also including quiet, darkness and solitude, physical comfort, and closed eyes and the appearance of sleep. Secondly, the Bradley Method relies heavily on training fathers to be labour “coaches”, or partners. Bradley Method teachers usually supplement these primary techniques with training in different labour positions and comfort measures. In order to master the ability to relax completely as a pain relief tool, couples are taught several different relaxation techniques and encouraged to practice relaxation daily, so that the mother can rely on a conditioned relaxation response to her partner’s voice and touch.
