"Oh, I disagree. You don't want to spoil your baby!"

"My baby slept through the night at 8 weeks!"

"Well, my baby was up every 2 hours for months. It's not good for baby to sleep that long..." 

“My husband has NO clue how to handle a fussy baby. He just stands there looking freaked out.”

Jessica Lagrone, CCCE

Jessica is a certified childbirth educator and mom of three girls. With her first, Jessica was so frustrated at all the information out there about newborn care that seemed to contradict itself. It was this reality that inspired her to create Balanced Families® - a place for truly balanced, un-biased and evidence-based information for families.

Jessica Newcomb, APRN, CPNP-PC, IBCLC

Jessica is a mom of two teenagers and has been working with women, infants and children since 2006, first as a registered nurse, and now as a pediatric nurse practitioner (PNP).  She currently oversees the newborn nursery at a local birthing center. Her warm and down-to-earth personality makes students feel more like they're learning from a good friend rather than a baby guru - yet Jessica is both!

Ben Lagrone, Ed.S

Ben co-founded Balanced Families® with Jessica to provide dads and birth partners with the tools they need to support their loved ones and take care of their babies. It is the dad-perspective and couples-focused instruction that make this newborn class so unique!
