You can do it, mama. It's worth it!
Having an unmedicated birth is an amazing experience. And guess what: mothers have been giving birth that way longer than they have had medicated pain relief.
You can do this! And you don't need pain meds!
However, you do need the right preparation.
This course is for you if...
You know about labor, but need to learn how to labor. (There is a difference!)
You're a first time mom, took a birth course, but want to go deeper.
You've already had a baby and want to try for an unmedicated birth this go-around.
You need a quick refresher on all the strategies to help you cope with labor pain.
You want your birth partner to be more involved and equipped to help you cope with labor pain.
It's the perfect low-cost option to prep for your natural birth!
Meet 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 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.
What We Discovered...
There are serious problems with the current natural childbirth education options...
> Why are natural birth classes so expensive?
> Why isn't there a way for mamas to just take a course on labor?
> Why aren't birth classes more couples-focused and dad-friendly for those that want their partners involved?
We love being practical. That's why we took an in-depth module from our popular comprehensive course and made it available for everyone as a short course option - one that's solely devoted to laboring without pain medications!
In this short course, you'll learn...

Why Choose Ours Over the Rest?
Well, honestly there is no competition here. Literally. We have yet to find a course devoted only to natural labor. Sure, you can find some natural birth courses that cost you around $300, but why take a comprehensive course like that when you only want to learn about how to labor?
Oh and by the way, our comprehensive course is just as thorough as those $300 ones and only a fraction of the cost!

Frequently Asked Questions
I'm a first time mom. Would this course be a good option for me?
Yes! But know that this course is designed as a supplement to a regular birth class. If you're first time parents, we STRONGLY recommend you take our Comprehensive Course (which includes all that we teach in this short course, too). In order to have a successful unmedicated birth, you need to be educated on all the research behind common hospital interventions, how to make decisions if things don't go to plan... etc. You can find more information on it below.
Can I use my FSA, HSA or HRA Card?
Yes! Childbirth education courses are eligible for reimbursement through most flexible spending accounts (FSA), health savings accounts (HSA) or heath reimbursement arrangements (HRA). For more information on how to receive reimbursement, contact your FSA/HSA/HRA benefits administrator for more information.
I've already had a baby, and I tried for an unmedicated birth, but it wasn't successful. Would this course be good for me?
Yes! As long as you have a good handle on the research and how to avoid common hospital interventions - then this course will be great. - BUT - If you need to learn more about how to make those decisions, then we recommend our Comprehensive Course. It goes into great detail about how to avoid unnecessary interventions. Plus, all the content in this short course is included in the Comprehensive Course.
I just want an epidural, does this course apply to me?
Yes, yes, and YES. Many couples don't realize that you will likely be in early/active labor for a while before you get an epidural (or at least, you should be to decrease the chance of complications). You need to be prepared for how to handle those contractions so you're not miserable! And even if you plan on getting an epidural early on, between triage and waiting for the anesthesiologist, you'll have some time before you get relief. Why not have some tools in your toolbox in order to manage your contractions with ease?
It's been a while since I've had a baby, and I just want a refresher. Would this course be good for me?
Yes! This is a perfect course for second + time couples.
I live internationally. Will this course work for me?
Do you include hands-on practice of the techniques you teach?
Absolutely. This course is very interactive - almost every other slide we are having you practice breathing, relaxing, counter-pressure, labor positions... all of it!
Is there a way to connect with other pregnant couples through your course?
Yes! We have a private facebook group moderated by Ben and Jessica where you can ask any questions you may have, meet other couples virtually, and get additional input about your birth plan.
What if I don't like the course?
We feel so confidently that you will love it that we offer a 30-day money back guarantee, no questions asked!
How long will I have access to the course?
Each client receives LIFETIME ACCESS to the course! So go through the course as often as you need and use it as a refresher at any point during your pregnancy and future pregnancies!
