We’ve been having a lot of fun preparing for baby #2. Especially when we were asked to brand a new event in the Oklahoma City area designed to connect parents & families with natural birth and parenting resources.
The Birth & Baby Connection is a yearly gathering providing educational information on topics like prenatal exercise, VBAC, Midwife attended birth, the role of the doula, cloth diapering & baby wearing through talks, demo classes, and meet-ups. What is so unique about this event is that it’s a safe and causal space where expectant mothers and families can ask questions and find real and relevant resources to local, naturally minded, businesses and non-profits.
We choose vibrant colors and an organic design to establish a natural and inviting tone for the whole event. The floral icon can be seen as one whole element representing the growth of a baby and birth, or two sections of leaves corresponding to the family unit and it’s internal support system. The overall Birth & Baby Connection Branding is playful in fonts and colors, but professional in it’s simple stylization.
We loaded up James and attended some of the classes. I really liked that each demo/talk was only 20 minutes. It made it just short enough to feel informative, but not completely overwhelming. Overall it was amazing to see how many vendors were present that are right here in our city.
A few of our favorite highlights included:
- Julie at the Gumboree Play & Music of Norman, OK: Wonderful and creative classes encouraging play and learning for both parents and children to enjoy together.
- The Changing Table: We’ve attended one of their informative cloth diapering classes before James was born and love their Grandma Els’ Diaper Cream!
- Piper with The Baby Wearing Doula: Looking to be a baby wearing momma before #2 gets here!
- Dancing for Birth Demo: I maybe bias, cause my sister-in-law teaches the classes , but I used these same techniques with James and only labored for 7 1/2 hours! For a first time momma I hear that is a miracle.
It was a fun filled day for the whole family and we enjoyed meetings lots of other families around the OKC area with wee ones. Checkout the Birth & Baby Connection Facebook Page to see the other vendors who were present and look for the spring 2015 event or maybe even one this fall?!
