Before she was the author of Birth Without Fear: The Judgement-Free Guide to Taking Charge of Your Pregnancy, Birth, and Postpartum (Hachette Book, March 5, 2019), January Harshe was a mother. Raising six kids with her husband, Brandon, January knows firsthand how widely birth experiences can range.
In 2010 January founded the Birth Without Fear Facebook page and Birth Without Fear Blog in order to spread her message of empowerment, to give women their voices back in the face of a powerful medical industrial complex and widespread cultural ignorance about birth.
Soon, Birth Without Fear became so much more than a website–January had sparked a movement. Her community had grown so big that January expanded her platform so she could speak directly to areas of specific need. She created Take Back Postpartum, Don’t Forget Dads, and Breastfeed Without Fear under the Birth Without Fear tent, all of which today collectively represent a social media following of over 1 million and counting.
Brandon Harshe, DC is a chiropractor, but more importantly a husband and father.
Having successfully spent over a decade devoting his life to chiropractic, Brandon is now busy behind the scenes helping January bring her love and support and humor to women across the country.
With January running the gamut of various birth experiences over the course of six pregnancies and births, Brandon has learned quite a bit about what it takes to be a supportive partner in the process.
And with six kids comes many more learning experiences as a husband and a father—all of which he plans on sharing about at Find Your Village and Birth Without Fear events!
