Birth is just the beginning...

There are two enormous mistakes we see pregnant women make:


1) They invest all their time and energy preparing for childbirth and forget to prepare for the years-long journey of caring for a baby

2) They shoulder the entire burden of parenthood by themselves. They read all the books and carry the massive mental burden of making every decision until they eventually reach burnout. All the while, their partners remain clueless about babies.

Meanwhile, the constant barrage of contradictory advice and doesn't relieve mothers' fears - it worsens them. That's because there's not a balanced voice helping summarize the research and deliver it in a manageable, relevant way.

Oh yeah, and Dad? He's still clueless about babies.

Parenthood should be a joyful team effort.

That's why we created a couples-focused newborn course that empowers BOTH parents to parent with confidence.

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!


Jessica Lagrone, M.A.

Jessica is a Certified Childbirth Educator (CAPPA), Certified Birth Doula (DONA) 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.
