May we tell you about why our logo is so special to us? It starts with our name: "Adjoyn" is a play on the word "adjoin," which means to be connected to another individual entity.
This connection to a being outside oneself is what Adjoyn is all about: increasing baby's attachment to you, promoting your bonding to baby, and offering you convenience for the transition - by adding JOY in, hence the "joy" of Adjoyn.
Everything about Adjoyn aims to be joyful. The images of our website work to stir the feelings of quiet beginnings of the newly born relationship with an infant, the start of our private sessions always begin with a joyful exercise whether we're in person or video chatting, our workshops start with dance parties, our social media will fill with words of affirmation and confidence. We hope that you feel as welcomed and embraced by Adjoyn as the two tails of the "j" and "y" in our logo embrace the tail of the "A," like a caregiver snuggles a child. The foundation of Adjoyn is this joy.
Something not displayed in our logo but always put forth in our work of joy are our three pillars: attachment, bonding, and convenience. These pillars provide the outline of all our services, whether we're meeting each other for a childbirth class, babywearing workshop, or private babywearing consultation. Attachment, Bonding, and Convenience, our ABCs, will continue to guide Adjoyn as we add postpartum doula work, lactation education, and more tools for you in early 2018. We'll elaborate more on our ABCs at another time - if this post keeps going we'll be here all night!
Thank you times a million to Ahava Creative Co. for taking some rough sketches and transforming them into our beautiful logo! We are so excited to get it, and our tools for caregivers, out in front of everyone!
A private, online babywearing skills session is a great gift for the special Mom in your life! Your gift provides her with a 90-minute live video chat meeting in which we'll make sure mama and baby are comfortable and fulfilled, she will have any of her concerns addressed, and she'll learn awesome babywearing skills to make the most out of those great baby carriers.
Questions? Let's find out more about giving the gift of a babywearing session!
What happens in a babywearing session? Our time can be used on anything mama needs. We can explore an existing carrier, like maybe get some more use out of that woven wrap by learning one of the 100+ ways to tie it, or perhaps get started on back carrying. Even if the Mom you love doesn't have a baby carrier - or a baby yet! - she can get expert guidance on finding the right carrier for her based on her lifestyle, goals, and budget.
What if this Mom doesn't have a baby carrier yet? (Maybe she hasn't even welcomed her baby yet!) Our session is incredibly valuable to have before purchasing a carrier because you can get an expert demonstration of the six different baby carrier types (yes there are so many!) BEFORE spending money on a carrier that might look cool or be the same as her neighbors, but not actually fit with her needs and the intended uses of the carrier. Babywearing sessions save $$$ by getting you to the carrier you need without trial - and purchasing - error. With this limited time Mother's Day deal a babywearing session is $24.50, but a carrier can cost $150 or more. Why not make sure it is the right one for you first?
Seems like this would be a great gift, but who is leading these private online meetings? Amy Rainbow is a babywearing educator with two years experience serving her community with baby-carrying knowledge. She has worn her own children since 2003 and runs a hobby babywearing education blog, Amy Wraps Babies. She also works as a childbirth educator and postpartum support person, so she is very familiar with the needs of infant and children caregivers.
So how does this appointment work exactly? You'll get an email with a printable certificate that you can present as your gift (or email!). When your recipient collects themselves from excitement and joyously thanks you for your amazing gift, she may visit adjoyn.com to schedule her session - no site login or registration needed. The session facilitator, Amy, will be in touch to check if there are any areas of focus needed, then the session itself will take place via Skype video chat at the chosen time.
A babywearing session seems like a great gift, but I need something to hand her today. What do I do? Adjoyn has you covered, just purchase the session's gift option, and get the session for half price, just $24.50, when using the code JOY2MOM. You'll have a printable certificate that can be wrapped up and delivered like any ol' material gift, but better because she's getting confidence-boosting babywearing knowledge with this sweet deal!
Does she get anything else? Of course! Adjoyn is all about adding joy in, so all sessions always come with admission to the Adjoyn Community Facebook group for help with troubleshooting and connecting with like-minded community; she also gets access to Amy for post-session troubleshooting, and exclusive discounts with our partners.
Do you have additional questions? Message Adjoyn before this offer expires Mothers' Day evening. Contact Amy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
