“I considered hiring someone for support during labor, but it was important for us to have an intimate experience. For that reason, we decided to take the ™Birth, Baby, Bond Course. We each walked away with so much confidence that we decided against hiring outside help. On the day I gave birth my husband did not disappoint. I owe that to The Jax Baby Company! My husband agrees, it was the best investment we made this pregnancy.”~Megan Kirk
Why We Do, What We Do
™Birth, Bond, and Baby Courses tell a story that begins with a single step. The story encompasses birth and a parenting journey that is steeped in love, respect, and confidence. This empowering story is eagerly waiting to be written and shared, by you!
Respect, inclusion, and love should never be dependent upon how we need to give birth, become parents, or how we parent our children. There is no joy in judgment!
Many birth classes teach parents a single method for managing labor with an emphasis on achieving a specific outcome, a vaginal unmedicated birth. Placing immense value on only this way of giving birth slams the door shut on all the other possibilities. When this happens all other paths, tools, and ways of birthing our babies is lost.
These flawed teachings create the misconception that if you prepare in the “right” or “best” way, you’ll achieve the “best” kind of birth, (deemed by many as an) an unmedicated vaginal birth.
That’s simply not true. It’s also harmful.
Facts: When parents learn about all of the moving parts and pieces rather than just one “way” or method to birth, medicated births, induced births, births utilizing an epidural, and even cesarean births can be as satisfying or more satisfying than an unmedicated vaginal birth.
You can feel confident and empowered and have a satisfying experience no matter how you become a parent!
™Birth, Baby, Bond Courses were created with all parents in mind.
- Placing value not on how one gives birth or parents, but rather how they felt through the process. We focus on the big picture; communication, respect, comfort, options, support, flexibility, mechanics, and how one can achieve a more satisfying birth and parenting experience overall.
- Each of the ™Birth, Baby, Bond Courses uses current scientific research and evidence, as well and proven communication styles to help you birth and parent in a way that’s best for you in the moment!
Parents have enjoyed ™Birth, Baby, Bond Courses one-on-one since 2013, and can now also sign up for in-person group classes and classes via Zoom & Google Meet.
