Nervous? You're not alone...
It's normal to feel nervous when you're growing a new human! And social media doesn't help. Expectant moms are experiencing information overload from the constant barrage of advice. Instead of feeling more confident, they are
Overwhelmed by the amount of information available
Nervous they won't be able to cope with labor
Afraid to make the wrong decisions
Confused by all the contradictory opinions
Unsupported because their partner is clueless about labor
We get it!
After working with thousands of couples and having 3 children of our own, we’ve seen firsthand how difficult it is to make informed decisions. Between all the differing advice given by bloggers and influencers, moms and friends - it is 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.
So that's why we created an online childbirth course that's specially designed for couples. It has a comprehensive, balanced curriculum covering all birth types. This means you can plan for the birth you want but be ready for the unexpected.
Learn and practice together while you follow along with our convenient, on-demand lessons.

Tonye & Antwan
We were able to have a vaginal and unmedicated birth which was our goal. 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! Antwan and I both felt really empowered to set the atmosphere and make decisions.
Ashley & Hayden
This covered every single topic we could have imagined, and more! 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. 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.

A.K.A. "THE BALANCED BIRTH COUPLE"
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 four 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. We took a popular online birth course, but it left us wanting so much more. Plus, it barely mentioned dads! That's when the idea for a truly couples-focused course was birthed - no pun intended!
Here's what the experts have to say...
Certified Nurse Midwife (CNM)
"This course offers well-researched, evidence-based information about pregnancy, labor, and postpartum care. Ben and Jessica are fun and engaging without dismissing important topics. The layout and presentation of the modules is easy to follow despite being packed with valuable information."
What is The Balanced Birth Method™?
The Balanced Birth Method is a complete, balanced approach to birthing for couples that utilizes education, teamwork, mindset, and planning to improve birthing outcomes for families. Our evidence-based approach is designed to work for any couple, regardless of their birth plan.
Childbirth is unpredictable and personal. Therefore, a more personalized approach to childbirth education is needed. That's why we developed a method that incorporates the best elements of popular birthing methods (such as Lamaze, Hypnobirthing, Bradley Method, and others) into one comprehensive birthing method that includes up-to-date research. This way, couples can develop a personalized birth plan while also being 100% prepared for unforeseen events.

Here's what one of the "dads of Balanced Families" had to say...
"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."
