About Me

Team Member: Paige Carness, B.S., M.S., AAHCC.

My name is Paige Carness.  I am originally from Texas; however, as a Navy wife I have spent the past 15 years exploring.  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!

With a strong science background including 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 8 years now and deeply enjoy watching families grow and strengthen their bonds. I have prepared couples and attended hospital births, home births, VBAC and VBA2C births.

My family and I are now located in San Diego, CA.  I have four great kids and an amazing husband.
