Birth, Postnatal, and Newborn education in a variety of informative and engaging classes with the entire family in mind.
The Jacksonville Baby Company knows every birth and parenting journey is unique! Our classes allow you to fill your toolbox with the best tools available and pull the specific tools you need as you need them. You wouldn’t use a square peg in a round hole. So why commit to just one birth “method” or “tool” in birth and parenting? As labor and life unfold what you need and find the most effective will also change. We use current scientific research and evidence as well and proven communication styles to help you learn as much as possible in a way that is best for you!
The Jacksonville Baby Company teaches the following birth, postnatal, and newborn classes:
Confident Birth & Baby Class
Approach birth, parenting and your own intimate relationship with confidence. Be in the know, discover your birth partner’s personal support style, and what a “satisfying” birth really means to you! All of this while getting your “what ifs” and “how-to” questions answered with science and evidence-based information.
In this one-of-a-kind class, you’ll gain a deeper understanding of the labor and birth process. What makes this class even more unique is that we don’t leave you hanging after birth. We cover the most important parts of this journey; postnatal and newborn care. These essential tools help you navigate new territory, avoid many of the pitfalls of childbirth, and win at the earliest moments of parenting!!
The Confident Birth & Baby Class is an all-in-one class and the only one of its kind offered in Jacksonville!
Daddy Doula (Birth Partner) Prep Class
If an intimate experience between you and your birth partner is what your heart desires, then The Birth Partner Prep class is definitely for you. Planning for an “all-natural” birth? Perfect! Planning to utilize an epidural? Awesome! This class focuses on making your partner shine on your big day!
“The class was packed with great tips. When I went into labor we didn’t panic. I was pleasantly surprised with my husband’s help in labor and this class helped so much.”
Birth Basics Class
Curious about the stages and phases and positions for labor and birth? Are you seeking answers to common questions and personal concerns? If just thinking about learning some comfort measures to help you get through the throws of labors and having a better understanding of the birthing process, in general, relieves some anxiousness for you, then The Birth Partner Prep class is definitely something you need!
“The Birth Basics Class was a quick class that made a huge impact on my experience. I kept hearing Elizabeth say, “breathe for your baby Emily”, and I was able to identify active labor and focus on that for most of it.”
Cesarean Birth Prep Class
Cesarean birth presents with its own set of joys and challenges. This unique childbirth education class is designed specifically for parents who are preparing to welcome their babies via a cesarean birth experience. We discuss the joys, challenges, and common concerns parents have. In this class, we cover the birth process from beginning to end and the options you have for a unique experience.
“The Jax Baby Company worked with my husband’s crazy schedule. We had a fantastic experience. After this class I felt calmer and happier about my choice. We also hired The Jax Baby Company for some help at home after we delivered. I highly recommend the c-section class and the overnight support to anyone planning for a c-section.”
Newborn Care Class
Bottles, boobies, and diapers oh my! Sleeping, burping, soothing, and cries?! What does this mean? How often should I? When do I do that? Why, why, why is this so hard? The more you know the better prepared you are for the challenges that lie ahead. In the Newborn Care class, you and your partner will prepare for the time that matters the most and get answers to your most pressing questions before your baby’s arrival.
” I can’t recommend The Jacksonville Baby Company enough! These ladies know what they are doing!! There’s a feeling after your baby is born where you wish you could take the L&D nurses home with you- that’s Liz and her team… but you can actually take them home with you!”
Epic Postpartum Class
You’re embarking on an adventure. Will it be a long, very bumpy road with lots of twists and hellacious turns, or mostly just some harmless turbulence and occasional tears and what the f*cks? Probably a combination! Regardless every journey will include sleepless nights, very long days, and inevitably some guilt. The fourth trimester is completely unknown territory be it the first time or fifth. Every postpartum journey is unique and challenging in its own right.
Our Epic Postpartum class takes some of the guesswork out and gives you a solid plan to work from. We address ways to care for your body, mind, and spirit, keeping your home flowing more smoothly, your family’s needs, and what to be aware of when considering postpartum disorders and illnesses.
Sibling Prep Class
Welcoming a baby brother or sister is exciting! It’s also all of the other things for an older sibling! This hands-on engaging class was created just for big brothers and sisters. In this hour long class we peek at what life will be like with a new baby around! The looks, sounds, smells, and BIG feelings that come along with having a new sibling are presented in this unique and informative sibling preparedness class! We promise there’s no Caillou involved!
