My name is Paige Carness. I am originally from Texas; however, as a Navy wife I have spent much of my time somewhere else! 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 strength their bonds.
My family and I are now located in Silverdale, Washington. I have four great kids and an amazing husband.
I came to know theBradley Method® while we were in Hawaii and I became pregnant with our third child. I’d had two cesareans and 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.
I became a Bradley Method® instructor because it works! I want to empower couples with the knowledge and confidence to handle what is child birth today. I am passionate about educating women and men about childbirth. I believe that we must demystify childbirth by shrugging off the old images and perceptions of birth and replacing them with those of strength, beauty, love and joy!
