About me

My name is Paige Carness.  I am originally from Texas; however, as a Navy wife I have spent much of my time somewhere else.  My experience teaching Bradley classes across the United States and beyond gives me a unique perspective to empower couples with the tools they need to birth their baby – no matter the location!

I have a strong science background with both a Bachelor and Master of Science in Biology.  I worked for many years conducting high containment research and then working to improve the institutional and safety policies affecting pregnant and nursing mothers.  I have been teaching Bradley classes for many years now and deeply enjoy watching families grow and strengthen their bonds.

My family and I are now located in Newton, MA.  I have four great kids and an amazing husband.

I came to know the Bradley Method® while we were in Hawaii and I became pregnant with our third child. After two cesareans I couldn’t stand the thought of another.   I had to make a vaginal birth work – but I wasn’t really sure how!  I found the Bradley Method® and the training, support and classroom education was pivotal to our successful VBACs.

My own VBAC journey propelled me on a journey to advocate for women seeking VBAC and to improve the mainstream culture of birth
