THE BIRTH CLASS

FOR COUPLES

Birth with confidence.

Learn together. 

Become 100% prepared for an unmedicated birth, epidural or C-section with our interactive, on-demand course taught by a husband-wife birth education duo.

“Girl, you aren’t strong enough to have a natural birth. Just get the epidural.”

“Your husband won’t help you. He’ll probably just watch his phone until you’re pushing.”

“Oh no! You do not want an epidural. It will hurt your baby!”

“Just get induced. It’s so much easier and you won’t have to wait to go into labor.”

Tired of all the opinions and just want the facts so you can make your own decisions?

Searching for an engaging class that will equip your partner to provide the support you need?

Overwhelmed with all the birth info out there


Nervous that you won’t be able to do it or that you’ll make the wrong decisions

 

Freaked out from hearing traumatic birth stories

 

Unsupported because your partner doesn't know anything about labor

Maybe you feel...

We get it!

After working with thousands of couples and having 3 children of our own, we’ve seen firsthand how difficult it can be to feel empowered to make informed decisions with confidence. Between all the differing advice given by bloggers and influencers, moms and friends, doulas and birth educators - it can be MADDENING.

Unbiased and evidence-based information shouldn’t be this difficult to find!

And having an informed birth partner is one of the biggest keys for women achieving the birth they want.

That's why we created the The Birth Class for Couples. It has a comprehensive, balanced approach specially crafted for couples because well...ya know...it's actually taught by a couple!

Single parent? No problem! Rest assured it's still 100% relevant for you.

Here's a Sneak Peek!

Ashley & Hayden

This covered every single topic we could have imagined, and more! We felt fully equipped after going through it. The course was thorough and straightforward, but also fun! It had a very relational feel, too. It was like having your best friends sitting in your living room teaching you! The course really helped us talk through a lot of details that we otherwise wouldn't have thought of. After each module, we stayed up talking more after it was over. It was great! We were able to get on the same page and have a strategy for how Hayden could advocate on my behalf during labor. Also, the course gave us very practical tools, tips and techniques for managing labor pain. The practice beforehand gave us an idea of what worked and what didn't and that was really useful when labor came for real. The sessions on postpartum were also really impacting to us and helped us envision what life would be like with a newborn.

Tonye & Antwan

We really enjoyed the course and associated content. It definitely impacted our birth process! Our birth went really well. We were able to have a vaginal and unmedicated birth which was our goal. This was our second child. Since our first birth was an induction, I honestly didn't remember what contractions felt like, but things began just as described in the course. The pain definitely got real, but hubby was the best support. We utilized a lot of the techniques that we learned in the course. I had no real tearing or interventions needed! Overall, this experience was night and day from our previous experience. Antwan and I both felt really empowered to set the atmosphere and make decisions.

Hi, everyone! We are a husband-wife childbirth education team (Yep, a man that teaches about childbirth, too!). We are passionate about bringing an educational yet fresh and fun perspective. Childbirth is unpredictable. We want moms and dads to be ready for anything so they can have a positive, joyful birth no matter what happens.

 

We had three kids in five years (whew!) and experienced everything from unmedicated birth to emergency c-section and whole a lot in between. We experienced the ups and downs and even some trauma. After our first childbirth especially, we were left wishing our birth class prepared us better.

"When my wife began exploring the idea of having a home birth, I was completely on board, but also a little intimidated. This was our first pregnancy and neither of us knew too much about giving birth. I’m so glad my wife found this course, because it made a huge difference in our birth story. The information is well-researched and very clear, and the format is very approachable. Jess and Ben are warm and clearly have the heart of a teacher. By the time our son was arriving, we both felt much more confident and equipped going into the birth. We were able to definitively make the decision to try for a home birth, while also having a backup plan in case we had to go to the hospital. We really appreciated how much information Jess and Ben laid out without pressure. We didn’t feel pressured to go with a home birth, a hospital birth, or something in between, but to do what was best for us. Jess and Ben give you the facts and tools you need to decide what will be best for you and your family. As the husband and birth partner in the situation, I especially appreciated how much emphasis they placed on making sure the birth partner was knowledgeable and useful once things kicked into high gear. I gave my wife counter pressure and massage through every contraction, kept her hydrated and comfortable, and processed information given to me by the midwives so that she only had to answer yes or no questions. I was able to take ownership of my role in making sure she had the best experience possible. After seven hours of labor our son was born in our home amongst family and friends. We honestly owe a lot of that to Jess and Ben at Balanced Families. If you are considering getting this course, do it. It’s worth every penny and much more."
